yesterday i had a puerh-splosion in my house and tasted 6 different puerhs. all multiple steeps. and got mega tea drunk. and i feel like i learned a lot about tasting puerhs! not in a solid way but i definitely gathered info in my little monkey brain.
i have a couple puerh stuffed mandarin tea bombs in my collection, but KallieBoo! crushed her’s up and sent the sample to me that way. and i must say i like it better like this. cuz i’ve just been steeping the whole thing at once in a large pot. which is kinda too bitter. and mine is a white puerh anyways which i think is too mellow for that much rind.
okay okay okay, what i’m saying is, i like this one way better :)
it has a slightly more fishy puerh smell than all of the teas i had yesterday, but it’s still not strong. it’s also somewhat less earthy and slightly more on the leafy tasting side than some other puerhs i’ve had of late.
great as a pre-gym sipper!
