Sample from Sil. Thank you!
I picked this out of my sample pile, and then I was thinking about whether I should air it out or not, but then I decided to just go for it and try the tea. The piece I got is quite tightly compressed, so I’ve started with a 30 second rinse and a 5 minute wait.
15 second steep. Oh man, it’s been forever since I’ve had an aged puerh. Smells SO GOOD. It’s really tasty. Has some lovely sweet notes and doesn’t taste musty at all.
And now I have a cat on my lap and to lean forward and steep again would mean tipping the cat onto the floor, and I don’t feel like doing that right now. :)
Edit: I’ve had a few more steeps and I’m really enjoying this tea! Maybe now that I have the kettle set up, I’ll manage to drink more of the vast quantity of puerhs that I have…
