So…my notices/notifications aren’t working when I click on it from my dashboard. I am getting the following message and have told Ricky and Jason about it. Anyone else getting this???
Oops.

Someone forgot to turn off the kettle. Check back later or try one of these:

ANYHOW….
Infusion #2

This infusion has a nice mellow gold color to it. It’s still sweet and has a very gentle sweet-wood flavor going on…quite crisp! Nice! I like the 2nd infusion better than the first!

E Alexander Gerster

I often find myself liking the later infusions of pu’erh much better than the first… much more complexity, and usually a bit more subtle. I have a fondness for the “Ancient Arbor” teas, you just seem to be able to taste the rich life the trees have lived. :)
A friend told me the Lao Lin Cang tea factory is no longer producing, which would be a real shame. They made some really good teas!

TeaEqualsBliss

Oh…bummer if that is the case – thanks for the note tho! LOVE hearing about others thoughts and experiences :)

Backlog:

OK, folks, I feel like I’m slowly getting caught up. I’m only like two months behind at this point. It’s happening … I’ll get caught up. No matter what Sil says! hahaha!

A gentle, earthy aroma to the dry leaf of this tea. Not an off-putting earthiness. It’s a subtle and even a sweet earthy kind of scent.

The flavor is gently earthy, sweet, woodsy … with even … a slight “wild” sort of taste to it. Notes of fruit. A pleasant, mellow Sheng.

Quite smooth. Nice aroma. Notes of fruit-like sweetness and wood. This is a surprisingly calming tea. Lasting, pleasant throat.
Update: I’m about thirteen or so infusions in… does this tea ever end? Wow…

Slight side note: I just want all my sheng to age about 40-50 years… like…. right now. Gosh, that would be heavenly.

JC

I know right?! I want to grow really old just to keep drinking more tea. lol

boychik

JC, lets hope when we grow really old we won’t forget to drink it:-)

JC

LOL! ‘why are there disc shaped compost piles all over my house?’

mrmopar

I prefer the grass Frisbee description.

Tea Pet

Funny note: Just an hour ago, my SO asked me if we could use pu-erh as Frisbees… :-/

mrmopar

Hah that is funny! I told my bestie that they could double as birds nests if needed be. At least it helps me justify my cupboard. LOL!

JC

Lol. Well, in all fairness I have bought some Puerh that would work best as a frisbee than tea :P

mrmopar

Yeah got some of that too.
