drank Pu-Erh Candy Bar by Liquid Proust Teas
2914 tasting notes

Sipdown! Was craving pu’erh all day today, and now than I’m home, I’m feeling very satisfied.

Rinse: 200 mL hotish water for 10 seconds

Steep 1: 200 mL hot water, 2 minutes
Lots of fermented tea (pu’erh) for sure, but also sweet honeybush. Notes of cocoa, sweet honey, honeysuckle flowers, quite woody. No astringency of bitterness anywhere, but I find at the end of a sip of pu’erh it almost burns my sinuses and throat like chili or alcohol. I notice it with all of the varieties and flavours I have tried.

Steep 2: Very woody still, brew smells strongly of honeybush and rooibos. Slight flavour of Earth, but not mossy or dusty.

Wet leaf smells strongly of raw cocoa and honeybush. No fermentation smell, just a bit of Earthiness.

Flavors: Cocoa, Earth, Honey, Sweet, Wood

195 °F / 90 °C 1 tsp

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
