3 Tasting Notes
Very nice puerh, I’ve been drinking this almost daily. Great in a teapot and delicious in the gaiwan with a 20 second steep for 2 or 3 times. Brewed stronger and/or in the first steep: rich red hue and cocoa nib like flavor. Candy cap mushroom and slight earthiness while still being very clean.

I don’t drink many black teas these days, but this one is quite nice. Rich, golden/amber color to the liquor and the tea itself has beautiful black and golden hues. I brewed this one in a bottom-draining tea steeper, for 4 minutes with water just boiling.
Sweet, lightly malted, aroma which carries through into the cup. I can kinda sense the sweet potato that they mention, but it’s very light. Great texture and balance.
