39 Tasting Notes
This is my everyday drinker. Really well balanced tea. I agree with the other review that say that this is a ‘diplomatic’ pu erh. If you want to start with ripe pu erh this is the best option to start.
I have steep it twice today, with 5.35gr of leaves and boiling water in both steps as I’m starting to take notes about my teas to see how they change with time as I have bought during this year some pu erh to age.
7sec: It has some kind of sweetness, with a light astringent afterstaste. Mid body. I can’t identify any concrete note. It’s not complex, but just I can’t find any known note.
9sec: it’s more sweet, light body. The astringent aftertaste is now lighter than in the previous step. I still can’t find any concrete note. Really well balanced.
This is concerning me as I don’t know if it’s me or this tea has ‘no concrete notes’. Maybe someone with a better palate will find some notes but I can’t. I can only indentify sweetness and that astringent/really light bitter aftertaste.
I will continue tomorrow to see how it develops and if I can find any note.
I purchased 2 cakes from Dragon Tea House some years ago and I regret that I only purchased 2… (still have 1 and a half cake, but I only brew it in special ocasions).
This is a really complex tea for me to review. It has a lot of flavour notes. It’s meallow, and medium to full bodied.
I’m a newbie but I’m going to review this tea…
It has a really strong smoke flavour and medium bitternes. I couldn’t found any sweetness in it. Too strong for me. If you like strong smoke flavour you’ll enjoy it, but that’s not my case.
I steep it 5 times. 5sec (rinse), 10sec, 15sec, 20sec, 25sec.
Flavors: Bitter, Smoke
