From Yunnan Sourcing

This tuo cha has been stored in Guangdong since 2006 and is an excellent example of "dry stored" Guangdong tea. The round tight-lidded box offered excellent stable humidity throughout the years.

Puerh Plus TTB. I am enjoying the bitterness of this tea. It’s kind of like a somewhat insensitive teenage guy. He doesn’t care too much what anyone thinks of him. He makes a few too many jackass observations to be a good friend, and is really pretty shallow, but in a plot twist personality-wise, loves to make you laugh. The kind of guy who would tickle you even though you hated it, and then you’d laugh because you couldn’t help it.

Do I keep this guy around for the laughs? I’m not getting much else, but there’s value in a tea that will bring on the smiles.

This is the only pu-erh I’ve had where I needed to rinse it out. That first steeping was pungent and overpowering. I was worried that just rinsing it out wouldn’t make much of a difference, but it did. The second steeping, first tasting, was delicious. I didn’t realize how much you would lose in the rinse, but all that is left is drinkable delicious tea. Every steeping there is a significant change in the intensity of flavor, but that initial taste stayed with me through every cup.

Cold Brew
I was really nervous about this cold brew since I don’t rinse the leaves before steeping. To my disappointment, there is hardly any flavor in this tea. None of the flavors are there, its just brown water. There is a very slight aftertaste, but nothing distinct. Usually the cold brew brings out everything I love in a tea, but this one was just a disappointment.
