I am fairly new to Puerh teas, and I’m not great at writing tasting notes, so take this as you will. This is an earthy, wet leafy tea. It is not too bitter, but it is strong. I don’t get fishy, but definitely a tea that tastes grounded and earthy.

As I’m still learning Puerhs, I don’t know if this is a good taste or not. It’s not one I am accustomed to yet. I’ll keep trying them and learning them.

This tea really lives up to it’s name. First steep today was a full 3 minutes in a gaiwan and it was really strong. Second steep was 1 minute and I enjoyed that much better. It instantly takes me back to when I was a child and the old barn that we had on the farm. Dark, dank, musty, wet. Who knows what all is lurking in the darkness. The second sip takes me back to some woods we used to play in. An overcast, dark sky, rain falling, piles of rotting leaves. It’s getting dark.

Time for another sip…

Nice smooth black tea with a hint of orange peel and cinnamon. I don’t taste much clove. It’s a decent drinking tea for work and in the winter.

Not a big fan of this tea. Drinking it straight this morning and it’s a bit rough. I’m sure it would be better with creamer in it, but I don’t have any today. I will finish the little tin I have of it, but don’t plan on buying more. There was also a plain English Tea and and Afternoon tea in the set. I assume they are all similar, low-mid grade teas.

Flavors: Bitter, Dark Wood, Drying

From the Regional Group Buy. I brewed it with cooled hot water from work (just feeling it, no temperature gauge), loose leaf tea bag, and a coffee mug.

A nice grassy light green tea. Very smooth and not bitter at all.

The tea opens with a wonderful peach scent. After steeping, it is a very nice fruity tea. Nice peach flavor and not artificial tasting at all. Great as a light afternoon tea.

I’ve only been drinking tea regularly for a couple years. I used to drink it at my grandma’s house when I was a young kid and this has brought back a lot of wonderful memories. I’m trying to learn what I can, but there are centuries of information out there.
