8 Tasting Notes


I throw about a Tbs. of this in metal diffuser and drop that into a ceramic mug with about 2 cups of water 212. Then after about 2 min. I pull it out. Great mellow aroma and taste. Reminds me of a warm blanket I just pulled out of the drier.

Now having said that, the gate of heave opens to me and angles sign when I drink this with cookies. I like chocolate chip cookie best with this.

Steeping about 5 times letting the water I was using cool as I went starting at 212.

Tea wear use was all ceramic.

This tea seemed to me to be lacking in smoothness, a bit bitter, the taste was indistinct and the aroma seemed flat. This is my first Pu erh tea so I may change my rating after brewing it a few more time. For right now I am unimpressed. I have had Pu erh tea steeped for me once before at a tea shop and I loved it but for some reason this just does not stack up.

How long are you steeping for and at what concentration?

I ordered this tea in the month of July 2010 and that is all I know about it as far as time line. I had an order about 6 months earlier, that I didn’t care for too much but this was not bad at all. As far as the whole steeping thing goes I have sort of adopted a new brewing technique from the Korean Tea shops is Seoul. At about 45-55 water-tea at 175 degrees I allowed it to steep for about 5 to 10 seconds. As long as I kept the steep very light I found it had very pleasant taste not at all grassy or bitter but very savory. After steeping a few time the flavor was much improved. The delicious after taste still linger on the insides of my cheeks, does that happen to any one else?

This tea could probably steeped any where from 180 to 210 depending on how you like the flavor but I found that 190 was where I enjoyed it the most. Also being as it is a majority black tea it is best steeped in a clay pot as opposed to glass. I thought the Blend was well balanced and each flavore worked well with each other.
