Well, it’s been like, what, six or so months?
Suffice to say, lots of shit has been happening, and I’ve neither really had the time nor motivation to make a post here for a while.
But I’m trying to get into a healthier schedule, and as a result I’ll probably be posting here somewhat regularly again.
Here we have imperial puer. I got a bunch of different teas (mostly oolongs, but a couple other varieties) all from this same company, but I can’t remember what it’s called. (It was a while ago, okay?) They all came in these bamboo tube things, pretty cool.
This is getting towards the end of this batch, so the pieces of tea here are a bit more broken up than most, but it still brews and tastes just fine.
It’s almost like a cross between black and puer. The brewed tea has a slightly lighter color, in-between the red of black tea and near-black of puer. The immediate taste tastes a bit like a lightly-steeped Golden Snail black tea (more on that in an upcoming post), then it fades into a more typical puer flavor, but not overwhelmingly. Pretty good, pretty balanced. Unfortunately, I’ll be finishing it off today.
