Awesome Cheri sent me a sample of this tea. I’ve been super curious about it but not willing to pay $$$ for shipping on only an ounce without trying it first. I really enjoy beer aged in bourbon barrels!
So anyway, this puerh. The bourbon barrel flavor is actually quite distinct! The shu is dark and rich and sweet. There is some astringency not normally present in shu, perhaps from the barrel? I actually quite enjoy this though! Still not sure if I’ll ever purchase it since there are so many shu puerhs I like, but I am SO glad I got to try it!
