This is a sad day. This is such an amazing, rich, sweet, incredibly wonderful tea, and after what I used for today’s steeping, I have enough left for maybe one more cup. And the Red Blossom Tea Company website says they are sold out, and have been for a while.
I may be coming to the end of the road for one of my favorite Pu-erh teas. I’ll have to enjoy this one slowly, and will certainly pull it out to 4 steepings.
The Red Blossom website also says this is a good one to collect and age on your own. I should have listened.
Oh well. All good things must come to an end. This was not my first Pu-erh, nor will it be my last. And in time, I will probably find something I like even more.
But this will always be the Pu-rh that educated me the most about the style, that made me love and appreciate just what a good Pu-erh really is.
