I’ve had this for awhile, so I finally decided to take it out. I’m not going to go into too much detail about this brew, for it wasn’t that complex. The dry leaf gave off a Shou earth aroma. I warmed the leaves, and I got a deeper earth. The steeped leaves had the same warmed earth. The liquor tasted like….. you guessed it, earth. This wasn’t terrible, but it was boringly basic. This tea was thin and didn’t have any differentiated tones other than earth, wet earth, soil, and warmed earth. All these tones are pretty much the same, or at least in the same category. I won’t be getting any more of this. I wouldn’t use the word “rich” to describe it either.

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.


Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
