This is the least puerh smelling puerh I’ve ever smelled.
The first cup is a mix of floral and grassy hay like notes. The second cups deepens, both in color and in taste. Now there’s a pleasant earthiness at the beginning of the sip that melds into a sweet dark florally note by the end. The wet leaves are also beginning to smell more earthy and pond water like.
Third cup loses more of the floral, and your left with a mellow light earthy cup that just barely hints at an almost caramel or honey type of sweet note. The forth cup has more of that sweet note teasing you from the edge. I still can’t decide if it’s more caramel or honey, but it’s a pleasant surprise either way. It’s there at the beginning and end of the sip, with the earthiness sandwiched in the middle.
I have a feeling I can still get a couple more steeps out of this, but for now, it’s getting late and I’m leaving it for now.
