My dearest tea sister terri sent this sample to me and since I have been bad and bought a bit of tea, i decided i needed a sipdown today. Since my non puerhs pretty much all have several cups to sip them down (or giant Sil sized cups) I opted to enjoy this one this morning while i get ready to go run some errands before coming back home to try and work.

Only on the first couple of steepings but this is a delicious puerh. It won’t be my all time favourite from Garret but it’s not fishy, it’s slightly earthy but not overwhelmingly so. I don’t get the cinnamon that terri did but like i said..initial steepings. more to come :)

Edit: later steepings are deeeelicious! though i cheated after a few and just went for a long 5 min steep heh

Garret

I really enjoy this ripe tea. Went through a phase where I was worried that I was going to drink it all myself and not have any to sell :)

But now I am just pretty much obsessed with the Noble Mark ripe and have been for a year now! First tea of the day 95% of the time.

Thanks for writing this up!!

And thanks for being an all around great person, too!!

Sil

haha your welcome. You and your wonderful teas make it easy though. Hands down my favourite puerhs so far on my tea journey, short though it has been so far..

tea-sipper

Sil

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
