Hrm. Not exactly the pu-er I was looking for(been trying to get tea high for the longest time now, though I did enjoy it very much.
I think my fave steep was the first one, out of the four.
Rich and smooth, reminded me very much of coffee. It had a deep hay scent to it, and tasted the way I’d imagine earth to be… only I’m sure it doesn’t taste “good” at all. It just that when I think of soil, a certain flavour profile pops into my head, even though I know it must be horribly inaccurate. Of course, the flavour was only a top level type, and never really reached down to that happy place. Besides that, it was slightly bready, and mildly sweet.
Anyhow, not very descriptive but there you have my first steep.
In the second through fourth steeps, it became progressively less earthy/sweet and more savoury like. Brothy, and salty I’d say. A touch too salty to be honest.
Next time I’ll add some sugar and see if that brightens it up a bit!
