Another sheng puerh sipdown from a few days ago. Looking back, I clearly wasn’t too sure about this tea when I first got the back. On this final drink, I enjoyed the experience much more – so, either it mellowed out with age as I’d hoped or I’ve just gotten used to it’s slightly wild flavour profile…

Whatever the case, it was a really lovely session with these long, twisted, emerald green leaves. They steeped out beautifully over many infusions (we were probably drinking it for at least 10). No idea if Brenden still stocks or blends Arbor Mist but, if he does, I may well treat myself to a new bag once I’ve chipped a bit further away through my old collection…!

Junior doctor and casual tea-drinker.

It’s been a busy few years for me – I’ve graduated from med school and I’m now working full time as a junior doctor in a small UK hospital. I’ve returned Steepster to continue to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I remain particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
