Drinking this now. I was so excited to see this when they posted on Instagram. I could not wait to order it as Lumber Slut is a favorite of mine. I did order a ton when I got the chance.
Brewed this Gongfu Style and got about 7-8 infusions from it. The first few infusion the soup had a lot of body.
The smell: Very Earthy and smell of petrichor.
Taste: A little disappointed as it did not live up to their 2018 lumber slut. The taste is not as earthy as that. There is a bite that the lumber slut has that is missing in this.
Going in, I couldn’t get the Lumber slut out of my head and it did bias my opinion a little. Lumber slut aside. The lumber balls were like your run of the mill pu-erh that you drink when you cannot decide what you want to.Honestly some days that is exactly what you need or want. I am glad I bought it and I am going to enjoy drinking the rest of this. It is not a bad puerh by any means but it is nothing too special either. Also curious how this would be brewed grandpa style .
Flavors: Earth, petrichor, Wet Moss, Wet Wood
