Thank you Pureleaf for this sample.Wow what a drink.Forgive me if I repeat myself but this tea is difficult for my novice palate to grasp.I was first impressioned by a bold smokiness that reminds me of a bonfire put out by water.Dry with a strong walnutty afterflavor. With the second steeping the smokiness started converting into another flavor I will have to try to determine the next go around. By the fourth steeping much of the dryness had dissipated and a creaminess had appeared.Very interesting to see a beverage change from very dry to quenching in a short period of time. I must come back to this tea and do it’s description more justice at another time. Tune:Buddy Guy,Baby Please Don’t Leave.Incidentily from the album-Sweet Tea

Dave here.
I’m trying to get back into the swing of things as far as writing reviews. my tastes have changed greatly from when I was last on here, Now I typically drink sheng puerhs daily, though I’m really looking forward to getting enough good blacks to equally divide my time between the two. I occasionally drink white, yellow, & greens but still stay away from blends & non-camellia sinensis. I’m no authority & always welcome suggestions.

I’m a wimp when it comes to astringency so take anything I say about this characteristic with a grain of salt(ASTRINGENCY WEENIE MAN, or AWM for short).

Other ramblings;
About tunes; I, like many, love them. I like adding them to my notes, but I feel like if someone were, let’s say knitting or painting or reading a book, that it would help the readers to get a better feel for how the writer may be impressioned about his environment toward his tea experience.

I wish I would have paid more attention to the grammer teachers so many years ago and not doodling band insignias. I should revisit the proper use of commas for starters, which I love.
I also love, and probably over use, parenthesis (the use of them may be a second personality coming to surface).
