85 Tasting Notes
Definitely not a black tea – little tea flavor. Strong lemon and some honey, fairly smooth, is good for a break from the stronger teas. Sort of a shock when you’re used to “regular” tea a few times a day, this is like a unsweet Sprite in comparison. Different…
I bought a full tin of this based on a sample, and it’s not quite as good as the sample was. Still more mellow and smooth than non-pu-erh black teas in general, but the other pu-erh I rated I thought was a bit smoother. All the pu-erhs I’ve sampled seem more rich than regular black teas.
cut leaf black, fairly smooth. Raspberry always seems to sound better than it delivers. It foes have raspberry overtones, but it’s nothing like a fresh red raspberry, unfortunately. Not bad for a flavorful change, but not a daily tea either (at least for me). Again, I steep light and no cream or sugar.
A full leaf, very dark tea, very smooth. Bought based on the recommendations of their website, and it does not disappoint. Seems like the last 5 new teas I’ve tried have all been disappointing, this one restored my faith. I forgot while steeping, and instead of my normal <2 minutes, let this one go 20 minutes, and it’s still not bitter; strong but very flavorful and drinkable. Full leaf teas are always so much fun to try and get out of a container, or into a tea ball, but are often worth the effort in being a smoother tea, for some reason. Fewer broken leaves = less tannins?
