Another sample from the Puerh TTB. Dry leaf had a sweet floral and honey aroma. After the rinse, it was much more vegetal, a bit sour. The tea had a pretty strong bitterness in the front of the sip – vegetal, almost in a broccoli sort of way (I love broccoli). After this though, there was a long and very sweet huigan. It reminded me of cucumber and honeydew melon.

Definitely seems like one that could age well with all the bitterness and the nice body it has.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Broccoli, Cucumber, Floral, Honeydew, Vegetal

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
