nom. one of my other teas from today – mostly i just wanted that distinctive taiwanese black tea taste, so this one got pulled out. I love these teas…esp since PTA is no more.

I do agree ! I miss PTA a lot… TTC has very great teas by the way.

sipdown! the last of this is packaged and going out to MissB as a thank you for all the awesome things she sent our way while travelling. While not my favourite of the stacy creations, it was tasty and i ADORE white rhino so that made it generally yummy for me regardless of whether the flavouring was having a good day or a bad for me lol

Thank you Wymm tea for the sample of this tea! I was interested in this one not only because i missed out on Crimson Lotus’s Kunlu offering but because of a couple reviews on this one recently. Mrmopar had this one yesterday so i used it as an excuse to remember to pull this one out today. I have three others i need to look at but I’m waiting for more time to be able to sit and focus on the teas.

Love the way this one smells when the water and leaves come in to contact with one another. I’m more of a shu girl, but this had a great aroma to it. The steepings i had of this one were sweet with an initial very slight bitterness to them. Nothing overly so, but enough to remind me that i was drinking a sheng. This isn’t a super heavy puerh – mostly just a lighter, refreshing, fruity, sweet, brew. I didn’t get much in the way of apricots as other have but the sweetness leans towards that sort of plum/stonefruit taste. No smokiness here and a really enjoyable puerh from today. I spent the better part of the day with this over multiple infusions in between drinking other things.

Thanks again for the great offering Wymm tea!


Told you,
pretty good one.


i had no doubt :)


glad you guys enjoyed the Kunlu sheng:)

love this tea. Still delicious after all this time. I really enjoy the bright fruitiness that this one has, that also has cacao notes running through it…sort of like a harmony with bass :) Yum.

anoher sample from Beelicious This one is pretty strong. there are definite stone fruit notes in this, though i’m not picking up on any cacao or chocolate notes. Instead this is a very strong brew, that might be better suited for some milk and a little sweetner.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
