Also received as part of Verdant’s 5 for 5 promo. My packet was from Autumn 2020. This was the first time I’ve tried a Sheng Pu’er, and I really enjoyed it! It’s a cold, snowy-turned rainy day here, and I got out of bed feeling a little under the weather, so I decided to make some of this. I did gaiwan steeps of varying times (though I kept water temp. at or below 177F) poured into a big mug, so no exact tasting notes. But overall, brews like a nice clean green tea with a nice aftertaste and mouthfeel, and was comforting to have. Thanks to everyone who noted before on the lower temps! I would’ve liked this tea a lot less if it was bitter.

Probably not a tea I’d purchase again given nothing particularly stood out to me, but that could also be due to me not feeling too great today. But as part of the 5 for 5, I enjoyed it much more than the Shu Pu’er.

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Keeping old notes up to see progression, but no longer really believe in all of them. Trying to learn!!

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
