Thanks so much for letting me try this, Kawaii433! I thought a teaspoon would work great in my smaller dragon mug. The leaves look larger for a pu-erh, not the tiny pieces. To be honest, I would expect a puerh with a rice flavor to use the smaller leaves… the smaller leaves would impart a darker, deeper flavor. This is certainly tasty, with plenty of sweet rice flavor. Also NONE of the negative flavors that puerh might have. As I expected, the larger leaves aren’t creating as deep of a flavor as I love in puerh. But the rice flavor is certainly making it a tea I really like. I suppose I could have just used more than a teaspoon, as you can’t really overdo a ripe puerh.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for full smaller mug // 18 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 4 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #3 // just boiled // 4 min

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
