sent this as a free sample. Not feeling too well today, but ive really wanted to try this one out as im beginning to get a taste for puehr now i have tried some nice ones and got the brewing method down a bit better.
So, rinsed to open the leaves.
first steep was quite, hmm, reserved? crisp & has a nice taste which isnt overpowering at all, nothing jumping out at me. 5 secs.
straight to second steep and for 10 seconds this time. the colour is a lot thicker and darker and the leaves smell of a slight raisin sweetness. I get, again, general pu earthy flavours & some sort of cake. not sure which cake, but something like that.
further steeps were 15 & 25 seconds. the flavour has taken on more elements of a cake or a sweet (maybe an english sweet flavoured with a herb or plant) but i cant put my finger on it. again, its a subtle flavour, nothing jumping right out at me.
subsequent steeps started to lose their flavour.
quite nice, nothing amazing, nothing bad about it.
