5g / 90ml celadon gaiwan.
wash/15s/20s/30s/40s/3m/7m

Hm didn´t like this very much. Kinda bland. The texture was of. hm kinda hard to describe but the balance of the flavours wasn´t good. The rest will go straight in the bin. so guess this was a sipdown.

Putting my morning frankly: I woke up and packed a bag ready for the gym, prepared a litre of iced Sencha for hydration, did some exercise, almost black out because I pushed myself too hard, did some food shopping, won £1 on a scratch card and am now watching last nights UFC fight. Not a great day so far but I am hoping it gets better.

……………………………….

The raw leaves are a blend of dark brown, gold and red brown colours with some golden tips and sticks present. Scent is earthy, smoky and rather sour.

Steeping roughly 6g of cake
With 100c water
In a 200ml Yixing teapot

Rinse 1 – 10 seconds
Rinse 2 – 10 seconds

Steep 1 – 10 seconds
Once steeped the colour is orange/yellow in colour and bares a smoky and damp earth scent.
Flavour is fairly strong, astringent, smoky and rather dirty, musty. Stronger than anticipated and the astringency carried on in the after taste. Not a great steep.

Steep 2 – 5 seconds
Even stronger and more astringent. Heavily smoky and dry and rich, damp earth and must notes. I’m finding myself pulling a face when I sip.

Steep 3 – 5 seconds
I took a minute sip and screwed my face up. Far too strong and astringent, generally unpleasant and not something I wish to have more of.

I’m leaving it there, this tea was just horrible! Short steeping times didn’t even help with the harshness of this Puerh. Frankly, life is too short to drink bad tea.

Congrats on your determination to push yourself that hard at the gym :)

adagio breeze

…and through this tea :P

It’s rare that I can’t finish a tea and would rather throw it away! Will probably just make jewellery with the rest of this Sheng. Then it will serve some purpose at least.
