21 Tasting Notes
I’ve been drinking this tea quite a bit lately, almost to the exclusion of everything else — even my usual pu-erh. I’m particularly impressed with its re-steepability and its ability to take a really long steeping to produce a strong, fragrant cup without bitterness.
Today my custom pu-erh/lapsang blend fortified us as we worked in the garden, transplanting and dividing perennials and creating a new 10×50 foot bed full of daisies, monarda, salvia, lilies, and hostas. We worked for an hour, drank a cup, worked for another hour, drank another cup — until we were done.
