The steeping recommendations suggested using 5g of tea but since I didn’t want to use up the entire sample, I took half and went for a bit of a longer steep time instead.

I rinsed the buds for 20 sec before steeping.

1st step at 1.5 min was rather weak and the flavour was a strange combination of mineral and mustiness and I almost gave up right there. But I decided to give it another go.

2nd steep at 3 min: The flavour was much more developed but still quite low-key. It’s sweeter and not as musty-tasting.

I’m only so-so about this tea. I’ve had other pu-erh buds that have been much nicer and more flavourful.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
