I got this as part of the Bana Tea puerh variety pack.

This puerh started off like a typical shou – a bit musty, but 2 rinses took care of that. The resulting tea was rich, earthy and smooth. There was a hint of ginseng taste. Later infusions became quite mild and sweet. Like the description states, it causes a refreshing cooling feeling in the mouth after a sip.

While good, it also didn’t really stand out to me. It was what I’m coming to see as a “typical” quality shou.

Computer geek and dad by day, soapmaker and artist by night! I have enjoyed drinking tea since I was tiny, and have tried everything from dehydrated Lipton crystals to aged pu-erh.

Only recently learned about and tried out Chinese gong fu brewing, and find I really like it.
