From Chicago Tea Garden

These mini pu-erh tuocha are scented with rose petals and the dry tuocha smell exactly like roses. The scent of the wet leaves is a delicate balance of the earthy pu-erh and the floral rose petals. The liquor has a sharp sweetness that lingers for some time. This is an all around clean, aromatic pu-erh.

I enjoyed this one. However, it didn’t have the rose scent and taste I was hoping for. The pu-erh itself was just as described. It is earthy and clean. It also has the slight sweet finish I enjoyed so much. If the rose was stronger I would have been over the moon. Today I stay on planet Earth but happy nevertheless.

I did not get a rose taste either. And I would have been over the moon as well if I could have gotten a rose flavor….

From my It’s All About the Leaf review, found at: http://www.itsallabouttheleaf.com/2074/tea-review-chicago-tea-garden-rose-scented-pu-erh-toucha/

When the average American first learns of tea, then tend to learn about black tea (often Lipton-eqsue types of black tea) or herbals. If they’re lucky enough to start to explore the genre of tea, then the worlds of greens, whites and oolongs come into focus, but the pu-erhs often remain uncharted territory. Of all types of tea, pu-erhs seem the most mis-understood and mysterious teas out there. I often see people new to tea mention that they are scared of them. And, that can be understandable; some of the adjectives often associated with pu-erhs are big, strong, bold words like “leathery,” “earthy,” and in worst case scenarios “fish-tank-y.” I don’t want to drink a fish tank. Ew!

Personally, I’ve only started to stratch the surface of pu-erhs. And even in this small sampling I’ve had some that I’ve spit out, and some that I’ve absolutely adored. So I went into this tea with a very open mind – this one could be anything. It came in cute little mini-cakes smelling vaguely of rose. But it wasn’t as scented as the name suggested – I was expecting more floral On brewing, it steeped at a rich carmely brown – a little lighter than I’d expected. And the flavor was very smooth with a hint of a sweet finish. Not as much of the earthy strong characteristics I’ve come to associate with pu-erhs, but rather a medium-bodied brew. And again, not much floral, either in the scent or the flavor.

This is a rich and soft brew. Don’t come to this tea expecting lots of rose. You won’t find it. But you will find a nice mellow pu-erh. This would be a good springboard pu-erh for those afraid or hesitant to try them.

61? Why was my rating so low? Dyslexic moment, I suppose. Anyway, not much to add, Ricky basically said it and it’s been a while. I was rushed when I tried this and only got to steep it twice. It was a nice general black pu-erh taste and probably would’ve lasted quite a while. I recently had better but I’m still picking up a few when I finally order from CTG.
