A nice ripe. Really compressed so pick carefully. Had a bit of funk on the nose but goes away after a couple of steeps. A very smooth and slightly mellow brew. Nice mouthfeel that gets better with more leaf. Has a nice tobacco earthiness/sweetness. No smokiness or bitterness with this one. A bit lighter than a lot of ripes but pretty nice. I would recommend.

Tea is my offering to the muses. Fuel for song. I like Oolongs, Blacks, Shou and Sheng Pu’erh. Each were a “gateway drug” that led to the latter in that same order. I fear becoming an obsessed brew fiend though I think that I have possibly crossed that line after trying my first Pu’erh. I don’t pretend to be a knower of all things tea but hope to learn more everyday….so please feel free to share as it would be much appreciated.
