Well, normally I do not rinse my puerhs as thoroughly as some might
generally rinsing very lightly as I am scared I am going to miss something…lol..
mistake with this one…
the first 10second steep tasted somewhat “chemical” tasting…I drank that first cup,
not too enthusiastically…poured the rest out….
I am not ready to give a rating as yet,
I am taking a break with one of my inexpensive,
But yummy pumpkin teas with creamer…
I will brush my teeth, rinse my mouth with salt water
and wait a few minutes before trying again
I will not give a rating until I am sure what I think.
Right now I am wondering if my expectations were too high
after seeing “Hawaiian” in the name.
Maybe that sounds crazy, but I have found coffees and tobaccos
to be more rich when grown in volcanic soil…
sometimes being grown in the mountains or near the ocean…
make a difference in the soil which in turn make a difference in the produce…
My second 10second steep will be devoid of any expectations…
blank slate…hopefully, I shouldnt need another rinse after first steep

Steeps 2&3 10 seconds and steeps 4&5 approx 20 seconds
This is not especially a robust or complex tea and after the 5th steep
holds no value to me whatsoever…
I appreciate this gift from a friend and do not wish to look a gift horse in the mouth…
whilst I am not saying the tea not steep worthy
(Very few teas are not worth steeping at all if on hand)
It is not worth purchasing (just my honest opinion)
I hope this was not expensive
It is earthy without tasting fishy
upon cooling slightly it hints at the sourdough bread,
But I have a greater appreciation for a tea that is bold, in your face,
and speaks to you without hesitation…
there is a little bit of a chemical quality throught that I do not understand.
This is not my favorite puerh,but I did enjoy a fair bit of it.
good day
