Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me. It was randomly selected for today’s #septembersipdown and I’m honestly so grateful it was a flavoured puerh and not a straight one. Gotta ease my way in.
This actually isn’t bad as far as puerh teas go. That’s due in large part to the mint which covers up the muddy/mushroom/umami qualities of puerh that I don’t really like. I don’t get much in the way of lime or rum if I’m being honest. Mostly this is a mint tea that coats your mouth like puerhs do with that thick/dense mouthfeel.Oh wait…I take that back…some lime and rum are coming through in the tailend of the sip.
So, as far as puerhs go, this is great. As far as teas go, this is meh. I’d probably just have a mint tea on a different base instead of this. As such, I won’t be seeking it out again but I’m also not looking to toss the rest of the sample. So thanks again Roswell Strange for finding me a tolerable puerh :)
