553 Tasting Notes

90

I thought I had something to say about this one already, i guess not just a test lol
Any this shit is good, i want another one, Why I gave a 51 on it 6 years ago I have no clue it gets a 90 now. i think this was one of those cheap puerhs that i liked, i must have really liked it eventually and may not have written about it…revisiting old teas is fun once you have forgotten about them for so long.
I prefer to steep it dark, nice earthy, woody kinda malty taste, Very smooth and slightly sweet.
I want to get my hands on one of theres from each years that I can, Sold out on YS but I’ll look around.
Cheers!!

This one is pretty damn good, sweet and smooth, dark and rich, earthy with some cocoa and vanilla notes, it just Awesome, thats all.
I’ve had this one for a while,I’ve been going back and re-tasting some puerhs that ive had for years, I think i’ll keep this one out and drink it up since its so good And I see it is still available so I can get more if I need to.
At 12$ this is a Really Good puerh to buy and drink often I think, I’m totally gonna drink this up now.

Maybe 2007 maybe not, probly not 90’s, idk..maybe just a generic wrapper on 3 different teas, oh well….Still taste like Dirt.
I like it tho, used to drink it all the time, glad i saved one.

i think i lot of teas i have from Puerhshop may not really be what they are supposed to be

Sample today from Umi Tea Sets, its really damn good too :)
It’s best serve it up in your aroma cup if you have one so that you can enjoy the fragrance, it is quite nice, a very sweet floral aroma idk what but sweet like honeysuckle, I like it.
The taste is also slightly sweet like cane sugar almost and quite floral like drinking a flower also vegetal, mineral, no bitter or astringent at all its actually quite “juicy” with slight fruit notes as well like Peach perhaps.
Very good tea, I am pleased to have it.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Mineral, Peach, Sweet, Vegetal

So I didn’t see this tea on here for This Year and I didn’t feel like adding it myself blah blah so last year’s tea right here is well fine enough for me lol.

This one is always delicious its malty and spicy with sweet notes and a nice baked goods type thing going, like a flaky pastry. Damn good Tea always.

Hello, I am great, How are you?
I am glad to see people still here on steepster, I’ve missed it so much.
Do people still do swaps on here? i been away for so long

ashmanra

I think there are still some swaps! Check the discussion threads, there might be even a traveling tea box! Doing well, other than the existential dread, ha ha!

mrmopar

Swaps are still done old friend! I am glad to see you back on here.

I’m still enjoying this one. it’s very tastey, kinda juicy slighty fruity like peach, floral at first then goes kinda leafey vegetal like fig leafe with a slight bitter bite, some umami notes similar a tomato or bell pepper, slight sweetness coming thru along with a wet leafey aspect that i enjoy a lot, like “autumn leafe pile” in the flavor notes above. Avery nice Tea.
I’m not a big sheng fan but i’m exploring more shengs now and this one is nice, looks like I’ll have to make an order with Mandala Tea soon :)
I gave 85 last time but Now I’ll bump it up to 90 because it’s really damn good to me.

mrmopar

Nice to see you around again sir!

ashmanra

I was just thinking about you last week and wondering how you are doing! Good to see you here again!
