372 Tasting Notes
Wednesday Nov. 10 2010 1st Steep of the Day,
Wanted Something New and Daring, So went with Pu-erh
Yamamotoyama Sampler Oolong Pu-erh.
This is one of 9 Samples in this Stash Distributed Box tea.
The Dry Tea smells Leafy and my nose didn’t detect any major difference
This is a bagged Pu-erh in individual Foil packets
But nothing unusal compared with other Leaf Tea bags. (Wow)
This 1st steep was infused for 2 1/2 minutes in just under Boil
The Liquer is Golden Brown Earthy Smelling more so then the Dried leaves
First Hot sip is Pungent and slightly Dry to the taste.
After Notes are Pleasent and Refreshingly Clean and Clear Tasting
Later Warm Sips are more Distinct with a Musty and Earthy Presence.
This was a GREAT Introduction to the Mystery of Pu-erh’s
I am now looking forward to try a Brick or Cake Pu-erh in the Future.
Great way to try these Teas
