2/13/14 Tea for the sick. 1 tuo cha/212F 100ml gaiwan 12oz/4min. These are a perfect single serving size , and brew up a nice dark red liquor. The aroma is woody and barny and good, and carries well into the taste. Supposedly they are different flavors, but so far they’ve all just tasted like shu pu-erh to me. I’ve brewed gongfu style, and western style, and this tea shows well both ways.
I bought these on a whim, because they were so cheap – 3USD for 9, straight from China, with free shipping. I am very pleasantly surprised by how nice they are, and will probably order one of the larger lots.
