Boychik sent this one my way a while back, and these days i’ve been trying to get through those sorts of samples. I have so much puerh in my cupboard and it’s sad when i don’t get to take time to drink it. So I’ve made a promise to myself to continue to make time for myself for my puerh and start trying to take back my life from work :) I drank this over the course of the morning, while booking our vacation! a month to go and we get some serious relaxation time. Spent a little more than i wanted to, but after the year that i’ve had – i need it.
This is a bold, rich puerh. It’s not for those who like wimpy teas. :) I love the colour of this tea…a deep red/burgandy like colour… was especially nice when i accidentally poured it all over the white floor haha.
Initial steepings of this were very woody, slightly leathery but with a bit of a sweetness to it? Later steeps the rougher edges that i didn’t realise were there, smoothed out and there was a hint of a tobaccos like flavour coming through.
I have to head out to meet up with my other half but i may drink more of this later.. it’s tasty! thanks boychik!!
