I already wrote a review on it. So some quick thoughts. ^^
This is so comforting today. It makes me want to start drinking pu’er again lol. I don’t know why but I just haven’t felt like it at all the past few months.
It’s such a cute and tiny little mandarin that fits perfectly in my 110ml gaiwan. Last time I wrote about it I had it grandpa style. I prefer it this way better. I didn’t poke holes in it or anything. I just put the whole thing in there and hit it with a quick rinse of boiling water. Then I continued with quick 5 to 10-second infusions. Casual-like so not really timing it.
The smell is so nice. A tart citrus aroma. I really like it. The taste is really mellow for a ripe pu’er. No strong taste but very flavorful. Mainly of mandarin, citrus, citrus zest. There is a little sweetness to it, a very soft and good throat feeling because it’s so smooth. I really think these did get much better with time. That’s one thing I love about Pu’er tea. It can sit around for years and tastes better later on.
I guess because of the skin of the mandarin, it gives almost a menthol feeling in your throat after you finish sipping it. I am not a fan of menthol at all but this one doesn’t bother me at all. It actually adds to it. Gives it a medicinal quality to it.
Flavors: Citrus Zest, Smooth, Sweet, Tangy
