I got a sample of this from the Curated Puerh Box 0004 and tried it twice in the past week. This note is from my first tasting.

Warmed my gaiwan for 7g of these fragrant leaves. I found the aroma a bit hard to place, but it seemed rather herbaceous. With a quick wash and flash steep, they yielded a smooth, reddish gold liquor. The flavor started out very light, herbaceous and vegetal, with a pleasant hint of sourness, and a syrupy aroma clung to the cup.

I got a distinct throat sensation off this tea, and I wasn’t able to finish this session up that day. I ended up saving the leaves and, funny enough, going back to them after my /second/ session with this tea, and found the rest of the experience to be pretty on par with that session, so my later note should provide a bit insight on this tea.

Flavors: Herbaceous, Pleasantly Sour, Smooth, Vegetal

Boiling 7 g

I like tea, mostly unflavored. I drink all tea, with a preference for teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, with some exceptions.

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
