This was a sample that I picked from Yezi tea. Their samples are individually packaged and i love that their black teas are in red bags, while the puerh are in black. Nothing major, but i like it :)
I’ve been drinking it this morning and i’ll try to capture some notes since this is the first tasting note.
I did an initial rinse of this and then steeped for 30 seconds. The aroma was very subtle and didn’t give much hint as to what the brew would taste like. Initial sips found this to be very mellow and mild, but not lacking in taste. There was a fresh taste to this, while still feeling like a puerh. It felt like a tea that hadn’t quite aged as much as i’d prefer.
More to come later, but initial impressions are that I can see myself getting more of this in the future. It’s not quite as developed a puerh as the ones that i love from Mandala (still my favourite puerh vendor) but this is nice. I’d be curious to see how this ages.
