I purchased this two weeks ago at The Whistling Kettle’s tea tasting event. I liked it so much I took home a sample (taking home more than that would have broken the bank). I still noticed the heavy earthy tones of this tea when trying it again today. I also got more of the seaweed taste again. Which most of my table companions didn’t care for. But to me that’s a pu-erh…earthy! This time around I did add a little half and half plus some vanilla sugar. Just to give it a little something else. And you know what? It didn’t do a thing to this pu-erh!
On a side note the owner of The Whistling Kettle said he was playing around with this one and some bourbon in their testing room. I’m hoping he’ll share with his customers whatever it is he comes up with!
