Pu’erh TTB 2015 Tea #5
I took this tea out because I have enjoyed one younger De Ye that was somewhat sweet awhile back. My thoughts were along the lines of: “this should be more smoothed as it has aged a good 3 years more than the last I drank”
Those thoughts didn’t take into consideration of tea factory, storage, and my exposure to sheng in the last few months. With all pu’erh I steep at least 8 times and by the fifth steep I knew this wasn’t going to magically become a liquid sweettart. The liquid is dark and has a nice taste, but as far as comparing it to others it would land in that realm of average. It also doesn’t have any strong enough notes to make a flavor claim on either.
