From American Tea Room

Our organic Antique Pu Er was harvested from ancient tea trees in Yunnan. Its large, dark leaves hold scents of cedar, fallen trees, loam and mosses. The brew is ruby-black and nearly opaque. It smells strongly of moss, and has delicate but dark notes of earth. There is no bitterness or acidity to this remarkable brew – it remains smooth, velvety and sweet, with notes of autumn leaves, across multiple infusions. Antique Pu Er is a personal favorite of Katie, our “Tea Mistress” (our store’s tea educator). This tea is certified USDA organic.

Sipdown no. 6 of April 2019 (no. 55 of 2019 total, no. 543 grand total). A sample.

I was looking for the entry for another American Tea Room pu er that I’m planning to try a sample of today and saw that I’d rated this one below 80. Since I’m currently sipping down my lowest rated teas and this one is on the lower side, as well as, according to my prior note, not one I found very special, I thought I’d take the opportunity to add to my sipdown count and polish off the last of the sample.

I made it western style, and it’s actually kind of nice to have a big cup full that I don’t have to think too much about — just enjoy the warmth and the relative mildness on my congested sinuses. I don’t have any great epiphanies that I feel I need to add to my notes on this — the original note captures it pretty well.
