This was very different than other shou Puerh I’ve had. It was much sweeter and less earthy, which surprised me. A mushroomy scent at first. Very smooth. Some may really like this. Personally I prefer a less sweet blend that’s more earthy. I made it in a gaiwan. After the initial 15second rinse, I had two drinkable steeps so far. The first me 20s, the second one 30s. I’m curious to taste the next steeps to see how it develops.

I’m an Archivist who is addicted to tea. I love tea—it always improves my mood. My preference is for straight black teas though there is the occasional flavoured black tea that gets me smiling. These days I’m exploring Chinese tea and gongfu cha.
