Another surprise from The Purrfect Cup! Thanks so much!
You’re messin’ with me, right?
Laoshan Black, Yunnan Golden Buds, Xingyang 2007 Imperial Pu’er, AND Big Red Robe??? I’m TOTALLY GAME!
Aroma-wise this has all sorts of things happening…but individually I can pick out a slight cocoa-powder type smell and I think it’s nifty!
First…I can taste the Pu-erh, then QUICKLY and BRIEFLY I can taste the Yunnan, then I can taste the Robe…the Robe seems to hang around a bit longer than the other two tastes.
As I continue to sip I can taste more natural cocoa notes. They are very nice!
I can also taste “rock” or “mineral” type oolong flavors a bit more as it starts to cool at room temp a bit.
Also after cooling at room temperature for a bit – the chocolately-cocoa-powder notes are more in the fore-front and the pu-erh seems to claim down quite a bit. It does become more malty, too! I REALLY appreciate this!
This is another morphing tea…many of you know I LOVE morphing teas. They make you think. They make you re-evaluate things.
This has a lot going on and appreciate everything this tea is and goes thru during the sip-process and that sip-process couldn’t be possible without the many people and processes behind the teas and tea blends. Thank you! Thank you for all you do! This is the sort of tea that makes you remember all of that…may we NEVER take any of that for granted!
