I got this in my Ripe Pu-erh sampler from Mandala. It has a wonderful complex earthiness, hints of leather, cream and oak. I did a 15 second rinse followed by a 15 second steep, 30 seconds and so on. I liked this sample, but Phatty cake is still my favorite – that may simply be by virtue of being my “first”. I would like to try this again, I started it late in the day and only got 2 steeps. :-(

Flavors: Cream, Earth, Leather, Vanilla, Wood

I’m a 33 year old female. By trade I’m a Veterinary Technician, but at heart I’m a food and tea lover first. I like spiced teas and flavored teas, I’m a bigger fan of black, white and green tea than I am of rooibos (red tea) and herbal, though I will drink those as well on occasion.
I joined Steepster to broaden my tea horizons with Steepster Select, and have already had some great educational talks with people about Pu-erh!
