So, as this one is steeping, it smells grassy, flowery. The first sip is very grassy, too, though I think I need to wait awhile longer to drink this – that first sip nearly scalded my tongue!

Ok, since my tea has been cooling all the time I was on a family phone call, it’s definitely cooled off by now. I’m getting a bitter, almost astringent flavor from this now, and just the barest hint of sweetness. I don’t know if the bitterness is part of the flavor or because of my oversteeping, but it’s a pleasant bitterness.

I really like this one. It’s my first pu-erh tea. I think I want to try some more. :)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, and drinking different types for about the past 10 years or so, but only recently have I started exploring the different notes from different regions and flavored teas.

I’d say the water here isn’t bad (although a little hard), but I filter it anyway, just in case. I use tap water filtered with a PUR faucet filter in my tea and coffee.
