This sampling session is accompanied by Joao Choras O homem do Ribatejo. I enjoy Fado music. Anywho, I begin this sampling with 4.8 grams of dry leaf. Leaf appearence isn’t very impressive.. however, this may be due to the fact that the leaves I received are from the interior of the bing. The wet leaves produce an aroma that I can only describe as floral.. perhaps a grassy floral? The liquor is a light-medium amber colour… typical I suppose. The tea is well balanced with a clean, pure sweetness and pleasant mouthfeel. There is an immediate qi that flows into your body from the tea – something I detected immediately from my first sip. The hui gian and hui tian is apparent. In conclusion, I enjoyed this tea. I think an 80/100 is a fair grade.

Edit : In later steepings, a slight bitterness opens up.

My name is Samuel and I’ve been interested in the world of teas for about two years now. I began, as most, experimenting with several varieties of teas. I eventually encountered the world of puerh teas – my tea of choice.

I’m an avid birder and mineral collector. Feel free to message me if you’re interested in either. I am a graduate student in mathematics.
