Thank you Angel for this sample.
The mood struck me for some Pu Erh steeped western style which I almost never do, usually because I enjoy the ceremony in making tea traditionally. Today however I am making Christmas decorations as the craft bug has bitten and I have no time for tea traditions at the moment. Still need tea though!
As I open the sample pack I am impressed by the large pieces of tangerine peel, hopefully that will mean it’s got a lot of orange flavour.
Once steeped this has a mild yet sweet orange scent with some dry earth undertones.
Flavour is rich and dark with earth, dry wood, sweet orange and a light, creamy after taste. It is very orange in comparison to the actual strength which is about average thickness. The sweetness is a nice contrast to the dry earth tones and the melody lingers nicely in the after taste.
I shall keep re-steeping this until it’s completely spent, but at least it’s a comforting and delicious aid to my crafting.
Flavors: Drying, Earth, Orange, Wood
