Recent Tasting Notes
Additional notes: Thanks again Meowster! Sipdown. This doesn’t taste like it did before, so I know my “boiling water for twenty minutes on the stove” method is probably not helping the flavor of my teas any. It’s just taking all the oxygen out with the chlorine. I’m trying to drink older teas for now no matter how much I’m dying to review the newer teas. But I’m definitely noticing when favorites are tasting flater. I really need to figure this water situation out soon.

A sample from Meowster! Thanks so much! I couldn’t find this on Steepster anywhere… but it’s a good ripe. No offensive tastes or scents. Pleasant all the way. A nice dark ripe pu-erh. A good earthy lingering flavor. The first cup I swear had notes of marshmallow and not just because I’ve been dreaming of a marshmallow flavored dark pu-erh. So this would be a great candidate for flavoring with marshmallow. Three solid steeps. I wish I had more to say about this one, but I liked it!
