A very nice loosely threaded puerh. The leaves give off slight scents of floral with soft wood. It as approachable sweet and tangy note. I warmed up my gaiwan and slipped some inside. The scent opens into aromatic sweet herb with sugarcane. I can pick up some white grape jelly and blueberry in the background. An intoxicating scent rises from the lid. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The taste begins sweet and smooth with a mild astringency at the back. A prominent apricot tone lifts off the tongue, and a candied fruit stays at the back of the throat. The feeling is thick and silky as it eases my throat. A darker woody tone appeared after a few more additional steepings. The hardy wood balanced the flowery fruits. The brew creates a lasting flavor. A stark pear tone appears in final steeping along with some cooling sugarcane. This was a good tea, but the qi was lacking. I enjoyed the flavors and tones, but it seems like something is missing from this soup. I’m not quite sure, but it doesn’t seem complete.

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.
