I was craving simple teas today and well, that MlesnA Dimbula was maybe way too simple. And this one… it’s called Daily Drinker so I assume, it will be a good one, though a bit boring, puerh. Well, and this tea have double entry too; writing here as it has got more tasting notes here, though, the brand name is wrong.
I did 5 seconds rinse which I tossed out, and let the humidity absorb the leaf for 2-3 minutes (only!).
1st steep, around 10 seconds
Weirdly somehow mineral, expected some astringency and it is rather sweet. Grassy a bit, round and smooth. A bit drying in aftertaste.
2nd steep, around 15 seconds
Here comes the… drying notes again. Not really the astringency. Again, a mellow and round cup. It’s not much aromatic, somehow “typical” sheng. Wet leaf is a bit into tobacco, luckily not in taste. Chunk dissolved completely with a little help.
3rd steep, around 25 seconds
Maybe my tasting buds are sleeping today, or it’s same? Daily drinker for sure, it’s easydrinking, but kind of flat and boring.
I assume following steeps will be pretty much same/similar, so I will end my tasting note here. If something exceptional happens, I will update/write down in comments what I found out. It’s a nice tea, indeed good for daily drinking… and that’s not wrong. It’s not luckily somehow super-complex in tastes, sometimes it’s way too much and I certainly was looking for something like this today.
