From Crimson Lotus Tea

This tea is a multi mountain sheng puerh blend we crafted in the Spring of 2016. This tea is soft and sweet, but aggressive if pushed too far. What else would you expect from a Space Girl? Like the rings of Saturn fruity and floral notes surround this tea.

Yet another Puerh TTB sample! Been busting through these I guess – trying to sip down the sample stash (at least the overflow that isn’t in the pumidor). I didn’t really take notes on this one. I recall it being vegetal and creamy – sweet and pleasant to drink for sure. There was a bit of an astringency issue for just a couple steeps when the heavily compressed chunk finally broke apart for me, but that’s more my fault than the tea’s. A bit of honey sweetness and pretty good body to this one as well.

Nice as it was, and as cute as the wrappers are, I don’t think this session has inspired me to add one to my next CLT order.

This is a cute sheng with a lovely soft sweet profile and a lightly creamy body. It is floral and fruity, with always a looming astringency threatening to happen if you steep it too aggressively.

I did 200F and got 8 infusions, with the final being very astringent. This is not a tea to forget about steeping and a good test of your steeping technique if you go higher on temperature. You can play it safe on a lower temperature, but also keep in mind this tea is pressed super tight – so it’ll take awhile to open up.

Hmm I guess no one has made a review for this yet. Drinking this tonight since I got a sample with latest Crimson Lotus Tea order. I knew not to use boiling water, so I started with 190 and yikes that was still bitter (even with flash steeps). So I brought it down to 175 and that’s a lot smoother. Tea isn’t bad, but is still a little astrigent even with the lower temperature. Definitely drinkable though. Feeling a little tea high from this tea tonight too – nothing fancy but a little light-headedness. Maybe because I drank so much so quickly?

For the price and the artwork I don’t think this is a bad tea. The sample I had tonight was a lot of dust and broken pieces. I’ll have to try the more “intact” piece next time to see if helps cut down on the bitterness and astringency.
