2/3/14 1st tea in an afternoon Pu-erh flight. 3g/100ml gaiwan/212F Washed. This was the only tea in the tasting this afternoon that I actively disliked. The dry leaf smelled foul, like a dead aquarium, and the wet leaf added an ammonia scent to it. This is the first “fishy” pu-erh I’ve encountered, and now I have a definite context for that adjective and all it’s negative expressions. Fortunately the aroma was far worse than the brewed tea. The brewed tea was just boring and flat.
