12 Tasting Notes


I like the smell of this tea; I keep taking sniffs of the tea leaves. It had a delicate flavor that went down smoothly. I don’t know if my brew was ideal but I thought it tasted good. It was relaxing. I think I like white tea.

drank Pu-erh loose by Zen Tea
12 tasting notes

This was my first time drinking pu-erh tea. The pack I bought had been fermented since 1992 and does not contain artificial smells or flavors. When I first smelled it, I thought I would not like it because it was so strong; however, I liked the taste. It definitely was not delicate, but I liked the gritty bitterness of it. The smell grew on me as I was drinking it. Unfortunately, my taste and smell are not very refined, so I can’t give much more detail about it.

I don’t think I steeped it for as long as I should have. My first cup was kind of weak, but my next cup was much better. I’m happy I drank it though. I’ll try for a better brew next time.

Flavors: Bitter, Burnt

sebarnett47. it’s very common with puerhs. They take some time to get wet and extract the goodness out of desiccated cells so first steeps are almost always weaker and typically forgettable. Many people simply discard the first short steeping and let the tea sit a bit before the start the secind one.
