The nose on this was what really got my attention, as it made me think of the aromas of a ramen restaurant with the vibrant umami aroma of nori (seaweed). The body seemed more medium while the lower-grade Ontario was full-bodied. Definitely a good-quality shou puerh, but I’ll need to come back to it and pay a bit more attention to the flavors.

Flavors: Seaweed, Umami

Eau Claire, WI native and current UW student living in Madison. My hometown had a tea shop that got me into tea before I went off to college to learn from talking to experts in Nashville and Madison, particularly the owner of Macha Tea Company. My tastes change with the seasons, but I love sheng and shou pu-erh, rock oolongs, Taiwanese oolongs, Yunnan blacks, and Japanese greens.

My love of tea is balanced by my love of good coffee (I have lists of the best coffee shops for Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Madison, Nashville, and Chicago) and my love of chemistry and environmental sciences, my fields of study in college.
