A small sample I took from the previous Puerh TTB I believe. Humid storage and woody, maybe petrichor notes on the nose. A lot of the same in the cup too. Moderately dank – not overpoweringly so. Good body and color to the liquor of this tea. Tea was lively on the tongue and those damp woody notes were backed up by a very slight metallic sort of flavor I’ve tasted in other Liu Bao before. This was a nice one – I don’t think I would pay a premium price for it, but it was an enjoyable aged tea.

Flavors: Metallic, Nutty, petrichor, Wood

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
