11 Tasting Notes
Very interesting tea. It is very dark in color and almost reminds me of coffee. It definitely has a cocoa smell and flavor to it. What sticks out to me is the smoky flavor.
This was my first experience with a pu-erh tea. I steeped it for about 4.5 mins at about 200. It has a pretty interesting flavor to it. You can taste the earthy flavor it has to it. The smell (while not bad at all) has a small seafood smell to it. This smell does not transfer (completely) over to the taste. Do not get me wrong this is a pretty good tea, but if you do not like earthy teas this one is definitely not for you.
This is an excellent full-bodied tea. It has a nice hearty taste to it with a very friendly roasted malt flavor. This tea is one of my favorites!
This is an excellent, smooth tea. I love to drink iced or even blended with other teas. I have found that mixing it with Six Summits Oolong (teavana) gives it a nice earthy tone. Sadly as much as I would like to re-steep this tea, it goes stale after about 2 steeps. I steep this tea about 175-180 for about 1:45 seconds and it produces a nice strong flavor without the bitterness
A very naturally sweet tea. It is light and fragrant. Definitely does well iced or hot. (Personally I love it iced).
