From Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company

Ok, this tea is a raw Pu-erh that has been stored in natural conditions in Taiwan since the 1980’s. That’s a long time ago. It’s had time to mature and you may be interested to try it. There’s a catch though…

Wet stored teas have a lot of “humidity” in the nose and in the first few steeps. Meaning that it’s like licking the wall of a wet basement. AND this particular tea is made with the excrement of caterpillars who chomp on the tea leaves. Of course, I wasn’t there in the 1980’s and can’t vouch for it other than to say that it’s DANK.

Sample from the most recent puerh TTB. The name is certainly accurate. Smells quite like a basement after the rinse – I double rinsed it just to be safe. Flavor was humid woodiness and dirt (in a good way, of course). I found a bit of a nutty flavor in the finish as well. Body was thick and slightly oily – I noted a small bit of relaxing qi, though definitely wasn’t a tea that was so strong on the feels.

Definitely tasty, but I don’t think I’d go for the $89/250g pricetag on it. This one is more of a simple and smooth drinker than a super special tea for me. Though it is really good.

Daaaaaannnnng, this is DANK!

It’s the dankiest danky dank tea I’ve ever tried….BUT, I like it—a whole lot.

Grandma’s grandma’s basement, beats, radishes, moss, & earthy goodness. Great tea to start 2018 out with. I used 3g of tea with 100ml gaiwan and it was strong stuff. This here is special stuff, and will be treated delicately for the next month or so (until the sample is all gone). I’d definitely consider getting more in the future once I’m able to properly “wet” store tea. xD

I have a sample of that about – maybe I’ll try it later today!
