Well this was a lets give it a try tea that I picked up back in July 4 months ago and finally opened today.
How to describe it? It doesn’t taste like fish. I know that doesn’t seem like much praise, but after my first attempt at a Shou Pu’erh, that’s massive. :D
Similar to the one I got from Whispering Pines, this has a lot of leather in it. In fact I will say its the dominating flavor, I don’t notice much else.
Its not unpleasant, but I just think this is not the kind of thing for me personally. Maybe I’ll try one of these balls again some time down the road to see if my tastes have changed at all.
