drank Pu Erh by Luk Yu

A tea bag Pu-erh. I am always very, very sceptical. Moreover, this one was from Hong Kong. At least they say so. Steeped for 4 minutes (suggestion was 3-5 minutes).

Yep,
fishy aroma. Wet and decaying wood. But weirdly, it is somehow pleasant. Or at least not making me sick. Colour turned to quite copper; dark, brown and clear. Hey, maybe it ´s not going to be bad. At least so bad as I had some tea bag pu-erhs in past.

In taste it is woody. But nothing much else. One-dimensional. So – in concusion, it is drinkable, but probably not worth another steepings, boring, tea. It even does not remain for long in mouth. Yep.

I do not recommend due to boring flavour profile. It is not super bad, I finished the cup and it is without any really bad flavours or aromas. But boooring.

I’ve never been brave enough to try bagged pu-erh, myself.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
