2 Tasting Notes
My first raw pu erh tea sent as a sample. very light early brews, light taste but with nice astringency that ‘comes back at you’ after swallowing. Later, longer brews develop a richer taste which I really like, not so astringent and it makes many brews.
Flavors: Creamy, Cut Grass
My very first ripe pu-erh. Didn’t like it. Much too bitter on first steep ( overtones of coffee, which is something I detest). Later, longer steeps were OK but didn’t have a ‘special’ taste. I can’t rate the tea fairly though because I don’t yet have anything with which to compare it.
Flavors: Coffee, Wet Earth
