drank Puer Tea by Man Cha Teas
23 tasting notes

A beautiful brick with smells of camphor, light leather, books, and spice. Begins thick, I mean dense, just opaque with flavors of pepper, resin, body, barnyardy but not musty, like old hay. Becomes more and more aromatic through the middle pours and the taste gains complexity as the liquor becomes less opaque. Floral and slightly sweet like brown crystal sugar at one point, this tea is a wonderful if not expensive Shu. Rinse then 15s/ 15s/ 25s/35s/and so on to your liking 1 brick : 8oz or Gong Fu Pot

Flavors: Barnyard, Black Pepper, Camphor, Dark Wood, Leather, Malt, Moss

195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

Flavors. Must. Find. New. Flavors. Tea is relatively new for me, so I am still in the training wheel stages but so far, I am loving it. I am well versed in medicinal herbs and my pallet likes to be challenged.

I work in the natural products industry but my education and background is in photography (BFA from MassArt.) Because of my job I am connected loosely (or on occasion directly connected) to many artisan tea companies including Mem Tea Imports out of Boston, Rishi Tea, Pukka Herbs, Man Cha Teas, Imports through Mountain Rose Herbs, Aiya Matcha, Jade Leaf, Numi Tea, Organic India, Gaia Herbs, and more.
