Had this one in the evening after an office work day where I had finished all of my advent selections before leaving for the day – it was sort of a reward, since most of the advents don’t have straight teas and I’ve been missing them a little… Well, a lot…

I always struggle to explain this flavour combination in shou, but it’s one I’ve experienced many times before that I enjoy a lot. This might sound bad/weird, but it’s like if someone mixed really thick oat milk with something brothy like cream of mushroom soup, and a really mellow wet potting soil – all in the very best way one could possibly interpret that combination of flavours.

It was very thick and coating, with a cooling camphorous feeling on the throat. Maybe it was not drinking a pu’erh in over a week, but it tasted like it was sent to me by the Gods. Very smooth, and pleasant tuo cha and I deeply appreciated the convenience of having it portioned out.

EDIT: If it wasn’t clear, this was Western steeped.
