drank Aged Pu-erh by Soleil Tea
358 tasting notes

Got a 5g sample of this from the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box and drank it last week, I believe. This shou had a strong aroma when wet and steeped up a deep red to start. The flavor was a blend of coffee, petrichor and almost alcoholic fermentation. I did get some fishy notes, and earthy, woody notes emerged throughout the session. The aftertaste was fairly sweet and I did get some decent viscosity with longer steeps.

This is not a shou that I would ever care to own, as the fishy notes—though subtle in comparison to really low quality puerh—were noticeable enough to put me off. It is not undrinkable, but I have plenty of better options in my stash that I’d grab instead.

Flavors: Alcohol, Coffee, Earth, Fishy, Petrichor, Sweet, Wood

I like tea, mostly unflavored. I drink all tea, with a preference for teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, with some exceptions.

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
