2201 tasting notes

So after all this time, I’ve definitely come to the realization that puerh is not for me. I used to be able to tolerate it occasionally, like in well done flavored ones like this. No more. “Earth” is not a flavor I want in my tea. Nor is “wood” or whatever. I tried to drink some of this and I couldn’t get past a few sips. I have lost any taste I might have had for it.

I’m putting the two DF flavored puerhs, this one and Pu-Erh Gourmand (lets call them #58 & 57), I have up for grabs. There is probably a half-ounce of each left. Some of you have had them, but if you haven’t and you like flavored puerh, you might like them. If you’re interested, PM me or leave a comment on this post. If I don’t get any takers, I’ll list them for sale along with a variety of leftover Verdant blends I’m not interested in soon.

Oh, that’s too bad! I did like both of them, so far as I remember. But I really don’t need more tea. :)

I like Pu-Erh Gourmand but I’ve never tried this one. In general I get what you are saying about flavored puerh though…a lot of times I’d rather drink my puerh straight and have a less funky base tea for my flavored teas!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
