I received this sample from Angel at Teavivre. Thank you!
I am just starting to try a few Pu-erh’s so I was excited when Angel said this would be included in the pack that was being sent. Since I am so new to Pu-erh’s I am going to leave this tea unrated. I have only had one other raw pu-erh so I don’t have enough knowledge to give a fair comparison.
I started by giving this a few quick rinses until the mini toucha began to break up a bit. The first steep was a light green/yellow color. The taste was a slight sour/sweet taste that I remember liking from the previous raw pu-erh. It was sweet and tasted slightly of hay. I didn’t get much floral taste, but at the end of the sip there was a bit of a fruitiness. The second steep was much of the same. On the third steep I started to get almost a spicyness at the end of the sip.
This was a very cup. It makes me want to continue to try raw pu-erh. Thank you to Angel for the opportunity to try this pu-erh!
