8261 Tasting Notes
I’ve had this one a few times now without writing a note. I picked this as my morning tea since i have a bit of time this morning before work gets a little crazy. I also desperately need to get through more of my puerh since my cupboard is back over 100. sigh I’m a fan of this one…if i had any sort of set up for storing puerh, i’d likely pick up a cake/box of this one. It’s very smooth and has creamy mushroom and brown sugar notes in it. I’ve only done a couple steepings but there’s no fermentation flavours here to throw things off and it’s just an overall good time. yum.
i can’t get excited about this tea. It’s not “bad” persay, but i don’t love it and there’s something in the taste that makes me not ever want to pick it. I tried it gonfu today to see if that made it a better option for me and while it smoothed some of the taste out, it’s still not what i want.
Open to adding this to swaps or sending it on to someone who will love it.
Need to see if i can find the ingredient list again for this one…long story short when i had this a couple days ago, it reminded me something fierce of another tea. I just can’t figure out what tea it is. Also, the flavouring was a little calm/wimpy for me, so we’ll see more when i can actually drink this and not wait a few days to review. sigh
