From The Tao of Tea

Dark, smooth brew with a musky, earthy aroma. Can endure many steepings, and does not become astringent.

Sipdown #4 of the day!

Apparently I am one of the few steepsterities that are up and rearin’-to-go this morning! I do see a few others and those I say GOOD MORNING! :)

Because I am going a little more hardcore than usual today – I want you all to take a look at my other loggings because there is something FREE mentioned in at least one of them! Check it out!

Anyhow…This is a decent pu-erh – one of the first ones I enjoyed after fails from other companies. This mad me be more open-minded and for that I am thankful! It’s well rounded and flavorful without being too intense! A nice one!

This is decent. The earthy qualities are not overpowering. The cup is smooth and sweet with a molasses-y kind of sweetness and a woodsy undertone. A very solid, smooth Pu-erh.

Last weekend when I had a terrible cough, I pretty much stayed in bed binge watching stuff all weekend. I did taste a couple of oolongs I hadn’t written notes about before, but I completely skipped the pu erhs.

Since I’m no longer pressuring myself to “get through all my teas a first time and write notes about them,” I almost skipped a pu erh today. But I wasn’t done with tea for the day so I forged ahead.

This one’s dry leaf has a deep, leather and whiskey smell. Not at all fishy, and not particularly earthy/mushroomy either.

I rinsed this at boiling and then steeped in the gaiwan at 10/10/20/30/40/60/120/240/300/360

The first few steeps were lovely. A deep flavor, sweet like molasses, with a smell and flavor of leather and whiskey and a cognac color.

The third steep brought out a earthy note, and the sweetness started to fade after this and a not quite cocoa note tried to appear.

By the sixth steep, both color and flavor were well on the wane. The seventh steep brought out a weak tobacco note.

It’s unfortunate that this didn’t have more staying power. If it had managed to keep its richness and flavor longer I might have rated it higher.

In the early steeps, I liked it as much or more than the Rose Tuocha from The Tao of Tea, which I rated higher than I’m inclined to rate this one. So I’m lowering the rating on that one.

This was the first Pu-erh tea I ever tried, and I’ve come to absolutely love it. It’s very subtle and smooth, with an earthy aftertaste. It’s perfect for rainy days, and it reminds me of taking a relaxing walk through the Wadi Rum (which is contradictory and weird especially since I’ve never been to the Wadi Rum…). Usually, I like stronger teas, but this has become my go-to tea, and I drink it at least once a day. It really can hold up for a lot of steeps, and it’s complex enough that each steep is a little bit different and a little bit better :) Basically, this tea is awesome.
