I’ve been drinking a lot of oolong the last couple of days, and I wanted to do something different. I found this in my pantry. I’d forgotten I had it!
I should have looked at the clock because I have plans this evening that come with a good length car trip to start. Well, hopefully I can find a place to stop when I have to, because I can’t stop drinking this tea.
I dumped the first two quick rinses, as I’ve seen that suggested recently. Then I really started into this tea.
oh emm gee
sweet but almost floral. Barely earthy, but it’s there. Creamy. Incredibly creamy.
Each infusion is a little different than the previous one.
I can’t believe how beautiful this tea is. And that I didn’t try it until now.
What was I thinking?!?
Even on the 6th infusion, I’m still getting such sweet notes to this, but it’s getting a little woody-ish. Sort of.
It’s hard to describe the beautiful party happening in my mouth with each sip.
I want more. I need more. I have to stop drinking because we have to leave very soon.
I’m going to hold the leaves and hope they’re still good when we get back.
Okay, tea friends, since I love this tea, what other sheng pu-erhs do you recommend???
