What a tea!

With this one. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I haven’t tried raw pu erh before so it was a completely new experience for me. I would like to go into detail wit this one, at risk of someone calling me a snob. I sometimes like things scientific.

Dry leaves look really neat, quite similar in size, not too dark brown in color and mostly undamaged. They also aren’t brittle, but rather firm and strong to the touch.

Firstly, I washed the leaves (5 g) with a bit of almost boiling water for few seconds. Then I steeped with 1 dl (3,4 oz) 90 degrees C water for 45 seconds. The brew had a wonderfull smoky aroma, almost incense-like. Surprisingly light, without the earthiness I am used to with pu erh (but I guess I should know better by now). The taste was almost sweet, but matched nicely with the smell. It reminded me of dried fruits. The lingering feel in my mouth was somehow bitter, put pleasant.

At the third cup, it will probably take some more steeps for all the overtones of this wonderful pu erh to surface, but I feel I can safely say that this is one of my favourite teas so far.
