I got a sample collection from Beautiful Taiwan Tea company and they sent a sample marked “Raw Pu-erh” with no details. Based on their website and how the tea looks, I think this is the one. Strange that they didn’t provide more details on the package.

I brewed up gongfu this afternoon and found this tea pleasant enough. Brewed at 90C. It was a bit weak compared to some other young sheng’s I’ve had. That can be a good thing or bad thing depending on what everyone wants. I didn’t mind but missed the stronger apricot notes. They were there but not very prominent. It had a freshness to it closer to a green tea, a slight sweetness , & only very slight bitterness. Overall, a nice light sheng.

Flavors: Apricot, Sweet

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
