Now this is the kind of pu-erh I love.

The taste of this tea is composed of a really complex web of earthy flavors. It reminds me of being in the forest after is rains. It’s always tough to unravel the flavors, but I get a peat-iness, a weakly smokiness, and a underlying thread of umami.

It brews up to this rich maroon color. I’ve basically been tossing the first infusion that I steep for maybe 30 seconds. Then I usually have 3 good steeps left that I do for 2 min, 4 min, and 6 min respectively.

Being a former Seattleite, I am a converted coffee addict. I am partial to Oolongs. I also drink quite a bit of Pu-erh tea as it has become my go to morning beverage.
