For some reason I haven’t been drinking a lot of puerhs lately. It’s not often I break out a shu and even less often I break out a sheng, even though I have two boxes of each. I should really remedy that situation! One reason is for this oversight is I usually drink puerh tea in the afternoons, but lately I haven’t been drinking any caffeinated teas after noon. However, today I have my first writing class tonight and I thought it would be beneficial to be more alert than I normally am… ;-)
I did several steeps of this in my yixing teapot. I’m getting some interesting notes that remind me a bit of coffee or bittersweet chocolate. I recall I liked this cake a lot when I first tried it, and it still seems really good to me. I gave up on wanting more after the 4th steep but I’m glad I revisited this.
