Thank you *Sophia * for this generous sample!

This is the first Fu Tea experience I’ve had, and I must say this was truly unique. The leaves are a forest green and heavily compressed. Its almost like an herbal pu-erh. This assortment of dull green leaves consists of some rather large twigs as well. Also, I did notice the vibrant miniscule golden “flowers” which I found simply amazing. I brewed these in my gaiwan under black tea parameters. I rinsed once to allow the tea to open up. This had a very earthy and humid odor. The taste was incredibly different. It started as a fermented wood flavor, but it finished almost salty and with minerals. I was able to get multiple steepings out of it. The salty flavor became more prominent as the session went on. Once I reached about four steepings the salt flavor was replaced with a dark sweet coffee flavor. This was very interesting! I would not be drinking this everyday, but I will be sharing it with my tea friends to bring something new to the table. Thank you again Sophia for allowing me to try this out!

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.


Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
