Been drinking a bunch of teas (yay) but have been too lazy to write tasting notes (boo) – so let’s remedy this. This came in the puerh plus box that I currently have and plan to send out soon once my Lupicia order comes in (hopefully tomorrow).
This is actually a really nice tea. Very smooth like someone else said. A nice standard ripe. Although I’m a little confused because “Sheng” is also in the name. Ay caramba!
I’ve been doing boiling water tonight and this tea is very forgiving and not bitter at all. Typically I use non-boiling water because I’m scared of astringency but this tea is pleasant to drink. I wouldn’t say the flavor is amazing but it’s a nice calming tea for tonight. I’ve been doing about 5 or 10s steepings. 15 and it seems to get a little TOO strong for me, at least in the beginning. Now that I’m on the 10th steeping or so 15 probably won’t be so bad.
This would be a great tea to get more of, but I went to the vendor website on Aliexpress and yikes it’s pricey. It’s a decent amount, but I really don’t need that much tea. Ahh well. And who knows what the fate of Aliexpress is these days anyway.
