drank Tuo Cha Bonbons by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

After reading comments here, to be honest I was not expecting much. I was not disappointed. For a cheap shou pu’erh, it’s ok.

I’ve put one of those bonbons in my yixing, rinsed it, and let it steep for about 3 minutes. It was a mistake, I only wanted to do a 1 minute steep. It has the earthy smell you’d expect from a shou pu’erh, but weak. And so the taste. I won’t do multiple steeps for now. I had a cold last week, so maybe that’s why I don’t get much taste. I’ll try it again in a few days. I may change my rating if my experience is better.

I’ve been drinking tea for quite a few years now. My favourite teas include black teas from Ceylon, Assam, Taiwan, as well as any aged teas including Pu-erhs.

96 – 100: If I would be stuck drinking the same tea for the rest of my life, this would be it!
81 – 95: Highly recommended! Among the best I’ve ever tasted!
61 – 80: Recommended. Not the best in its kind, but definitely worth a try.
41 – 60: Neutral. Not bad, but I probably won’t buy anymore.
21 – 40: I get that this is tea, but I don’t like it and wouldn’t recommend it.
01 – 20: Foul drink. Quick! Something else to wash down that awful taste.
