This tea is an appropriate cake for me. In fact, I am using it for my life narrative. Or, end of life narrative, as it were. I decided to start writing some of my thoughts in a tea blog called “Death By Tea.” The address is on my profile————>
I wanted to be able to post photos and this is a worthy cake. Dramatic? Yes. But I have my reasons.
Of course I will continue to post reviews on Steepster, usually with different content. And I really need the cupboard here and the good tea drunks who know my stash and I know theirs. :P
I haven’t steeped out this tea yet, people. I tried. This is the most highly caffeinated puerh I have yet brewed. 8 grams in my 130 ml gaiwan and they are now busting out the top past 15 steeps. I’ve tried over brewing it, thick and bitter, as well as quick, soft steeps. An old lady like me half gone but not ready to quit yet she is barely a few months old. Baby soft.
Lots of buds and leaves of many sizes. Yellow soup, I smell that light apricot and expect that taste but what I get is 2 notes lighter, white grapes.
Is it worth the money? Only when you’re dead, or almost. Like me. Children grown and done. I don’t have the time to see how this ages, but maybe someone else here with a really big penny jar will spring for it and report back to y’all in 20 years.
88 score today for the TwoDog and for the people of Yunnan. The news of the earthquake in Yunnan today gives me pause for having drunk this cake, my Last Thoughts for today are for them.
Flavors: White Grapes
