Can I just say the UX on this site leaves a lot to be desired? There is no reason for me to have lost as many notes as I have…
That being said…this was my first puerh and this was the last of it. I was looking for something to mindlessly drink and warm up with until lunch yesterday, so figured it was a good chance to finish this stuff off. Threw a ball into the gaiwan, did a fairly long rinse and then steeped. The liquor was still pretty light and fishy, so it probably needed more rinsing. Second steep was darky, with a more deep, sweet aroma, and it tasted better, as well. Earth and mushroom notes got pulled out during the few steeps I did, but this didn’t deliver on flavor very long.
All-in-all, I appreciate this tea for introducing me to puerh, which I have already gone much farther (and better) with, and still have much farther to go.
