6 Tasting Notes
My first Pu-Erh, picked up on a whim while shopping for other stuff. Steeped for 4 minutes with water at a rolling boil, as per the instructions.
Nothing special. To my (admittedly uneducated) palate, this one just tastes like a really strong cup of Lipton, if you had allowed a goldfish to swim through it. I think this is one I’ll pass down to my tea-loving niece.
Let this one steep a little longer because the strawberry flavor didn’t seem to be coming through much, and I’m more of a black tea drinker..the green always seems “weak” to me. After a nice long steep it was better. Second steep was MUCH better. Adding sugar really made it very good. Enjoyed with scones and peach preserves.
Very canaloupe-y…I’m just not tasting the coffee. Seemed a little weak after the 3 min 30 so gave it another minute. Added a couple of spoonfuls of cane sugar, hoping to bring out the melon. A very mild, pleasant tea….but nothing really exciting.
