Holy hell, I’m getting tipsy at work! This teas is thick, and smooth and delicate and mineral, and fantastic.
Ok, so. I first tried this tea a week after I got it because the note said to wait. I brewed it too hard I think because it was bitter and Meh in flavor and feel. All around an ok tea. Nothing special. Then I brewed it up again about a month after getting it. I was at work and the water is 165 degrees there and even at lower temp it was largely the same experience.
I had been keeping the mini cake in it’s original wrapper in the original airtight pouch at the time of those first two steeps. After the second steep I noticed that I accidently ripped the seam of the airtight bag and for the the last couple of months it’s been living in fresh air with my other puerhs in an old bread box.
I remembered I had it and was like, i’ll take it to work and brew up 7.6 grams in my new Manual tea brewer (175ml). I wasn’t expecting much but a decent Puer.
I WAS WRONG! This tea is amazing. The aroma, the color, the flavor and oh man the feels.
Hit me so hard. I feel fantastic. I guess when He said to wait he meant it!
I’m bringing the water to a boil, waiting a couple min, adding a splash of room temp water into the kettle and then infusing for around 10 seconds.
I’m only 3 infusions in. I’m gonna have to take a break and eat lunch. but oh man I like this tea. Thanks White2tea.
anyone else cracked into it again?
