This tea to me as well is responsible for waking the tea head in me. This is just a very comforting tea. I feel like it isn’t the most forgiving tea to brew. It will brew strong and dry, and I have found that brewing with a bit cooler water, helps bring out the malty, honey sweetness of the tea.

Bio

I’m an Audio Engineer, I travel quite frequently, so tasting notes will be intermittent, and from all over. I’m a fairly new to Puerh, and Puerh is what I’ll be mainly drinking. I’m still in the search for a good travel setup. I’ve already lost a gaiwan lid. RIP.

I don’t have a huge cupboard, but if something strikes your fancy, I might be able to help you out.

I stole my ratings from @derk, please follow. (Spot on, if you ask me)

Review Ratings:

100-90: A tea I can lose myself into. Something about it makes me slow down and appreciate not only the tea but all of life or a moment in time. If it’s a bagged or herbal tea, it’s of standout quality in comparison to similar items.
89-80: Fits my profile well enough to buy again.
79-70: Not a preferred tea. I might buy more or try a different harvest. Would gladly have a cup if offered.
69-60: Not necessarily a bad tea but one that I won’t buy again. Would have a cup if offered.
59-1: Lacking several elements, strangely clunky, possess off flavors/aroma/texture or something about it makes me not want to finish.
Unrated: Haven’t made up my mind or some other reason. If it’s puerh, I likely think it needs more age.
