I still really like the packing of these samples. I like the idea of reusing them to wrap random chunks of puerh I have in jars.

I let this one settle for some time; because, I haven’t had the chance to get to it. The leaf is moderately compressed and dark green with scents of fresh greens, roast, and tobacco. I warmed up my teapot and placed a chunk inside. The scent expanded into some bitters, smoke, deep forest, heavy herbaceous tones, and roasted greens. I would describe the aroma as rough. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The taste differed from the aromas, for the initial flavor was light and an easy sipper. I took in some soft grass tones and slight smoke in the aftertaste. The flavors were not too complex, but I hinted at some huigan in the back of the tongue. The tea was an easy drinker, and the qi was very faint. Although, the brew continued for quite some time. I was able to pull a lot of steeps out of my teapot. I’d describe this tea as “whimsical” and something easy to sip on.

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.


Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
