681 tasting notes

Broke off 1/4 of a cake into a 12 oz hot water.
Dry leaf smells very earthy and mushroom-y, with notes of cocoa.
Steeps a ruddy brown, very thick liquor.
Flavor was surprisingly light— perhaps I needed to use a 1/2 cake instead.
Tasted mostly like earth/ roots to me.
Just a typical pu’erh, nothing special or memorable to me.

Flavors: Cocoa, Earth, Mushrooms, Wet Earth

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Bio

Hello! 28, female, American. A total hopeless bookworm— I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in English. I also love dogs, all things that are colored purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorite tea types: Black, pu’erh, oolong, kombucha, genmaicha, matcha, rooibos, honeybush (recent change of heart there), and floral greens.

Favorite flavor notes: Roasted, fermented, earthy, floral, nutty, bread-y, umami; dessert-inspired flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and maple.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends as well as fruit-flavored teas; they really need to be done right, IMHO. I’m iffy about mate, as well as herbal teas, although there are a few tisanes that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Flat-out dislike: White tea, most unflavored green teas, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
