139 Tasting Notes
I’m drinking an 8 gram raw puerh dragon ball from YS that I got with my order. It’s pretty good—not bitter at all, very vegetal, and a little bit of fruit.
Because I thought it was white tea by the look, and the smell wasn’t strong, I did it western. Now I have lots of very concentrated tea. Looks like I’ll be adding extra water. My friend is coming over soon. He’s usually pretty reactive (calm and spacey) to the effects of tea. I’ll be sure to share some of this with him. :) I did tell him to eat before coming over. Ever since I read on someone’s tasting note that their son passed out after some raw, I’m sure to be careful.
This is tasty, but lacking in strength. It’s got some bready notes and some sweet (maybe) caramel notes. I’m probably being too picky, but I’m dreaming for the day when all the teas I buy are 90+. I need to be more patient and wait for other reviews first. Slowly starting to understand this world of tea I am. :)
EDIT: I steeped it a bit longer, and it’s better. Upping the rating to an 80.
