This pu-erh is hands down, one of my most favorite pu-erh teas I’ve ever had; although I am rather new to pu-erh tea, I know what a bad pu-erh can taste like! After about two 5 second rinses, letting the tea leaves rest in between the rinses to open up better, the first two steeps were rather uneventful, a slight vanilla flavor in the background, with a very earthy/moldy aroma, and was a little astringent. The third steeping is where the flavors really boomed, very nice sweet taste complete with a rather prominent vanilla flavor in the background, just a little earthy and fishy, but that isn’t a downside for me, personally I like it. The color of the tea was a very dark amber color, but it wasn’t a “slap-in-the-face-flavor”, it was actually very light in contrast to its color. The mildness of the tea means that you can’t really mess it up/over steep! I accidentally over steeped mine majorly (about 3 hours), and it was comparable to coffee, which I am an avid drinker of, but it had all of it’s delicate flavor notes still. After drinking that, I decided I would try to get an extra steep out of it, and got 4 more! This is definitely an all day tea, which is a major plus.

Dark brown almost black in color with a woodsy earthy aroma. The tea tastes of wood and earth, which are flavors I enjoy in a Pu-erh tea. It is not really sweet at all and is quite light and smooth. The aftertaste is nice and mute. Good stuff.

A nice, lighter golden alternative to my usual pu-erh. Teavivre was nice enough to send me a sample of this along with an order, and it’s very much appreciated! Warm, mouth-feel, stomach settling and relaxing. “Golden buds” describes it well. Nice to enjoy on a cold day when you need a hearty tea to warm up with!
