After four different sessions over the months with this tea, I think I have it down…
Coming from Adventure in Every Cup at a great value this tea offers: a workout for your mouth, appreciation for cinnamon’s cousin, and a dark raw puerh to make you contemplate what teas could also turn out like this.
With no regards to power, qi, energy, or whatever else we want to call it, this tea is one that is a bit more harsh to drink as it has that spice/wood note to it that demands that you follow every 5-6 brews with some water so it isn’t like liquid sandpaper. The taste is very lingering, but only in such of the notes that it has; just like a good cigar will leave the specific notes that it has in your mouth for some time.I find this to be a tea for multiple occasions and doesn’t really resemble raw puerh as much as many others do do to it’s woodsy’nessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
(that’s a word now, but with less Ss)
If this was available to buy I would say put it in your arsenal so when you need something different or you want to show off how raw puerh can vary a lot in texture, taste, aroma, stuff, other words, and some more jargon, this would be one to share.
