drank Royal Pu'erh by Vital Tea Leaf
1812 tasting notes

Another one from tea tasting, yesterday. Knowing my heavy preference for pu’erh, the folks at Vital Leaf tend to – after serving everyone along the section of counter – simply set the rest of the pitcher of pu’erh in front of me.
I have no qualms with this.
Usually, I prefer the Supreme Yunnan (12 year aged) over this, the Royal (15 year aged), but yesterday it tasted better and richer than I remember, perhaps due to not having drank any for some time. (I think my cupboard no longer has any Royal.)

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
