Goal: Try all pu-erhs in my house – #1
6.6g 100ml shibo, 212F
I rinsed this – and the drank it. Creamy, with both a hint of bitterness and sweetness.
The wet leaf smells overwhelmingly of citrus. Hopefully this isn’t too bitter!

Steep times: 6/10/10/15/15/20/25/?/re-boil 20/25/30/45s
Creamy, citrus, thick. Aftertaste was citrus and floral. There was some drying in one of the early steeps. Sourness was present in the 2nd to last steep. The last steep made my teeth hurt!
I liked this tea. Consistent creamy and citrus notes. I’ll just remember not to push it so hard at the end. No real bitterness that I could taste.

Flavors: Citrus, Creamy, Floral, Thick

Preparation
Boiling 6 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
