Full disclosure: I’m a full out pu-erh junkie. Have been since my first sip in a San Francisco tea shop, only exacerbated by trips to Asia, which means my pu-erh stash is pretty deep, full of lovely tea not available here in the States.
…I’d put Phatty Cake up against the best of ‘em in a heartbeat. It’s smooth, rich, lovely, and complex. Have been able to pull quite a number of brews from the sample Garrett sent, each just as delightful as the earlier round.
I need one more pu-erh like I need a hole in the head, but hey. Looks like that’s precisely what’s going to happen (the tea, not the hole).
