Today I had a lovely virtual tea session with an old friend of mine, who is actually the one who inspired to me to get into pu-erh in the first place. I brewed up this tea as it has been a while since I checked up on it.
I didn’t make any detailed notes, but the tea is performing great. It has quite a dark orange colour for such a young tea. During the peak of the session, the taste is pungent, nutty and sweet with sugarcane finish and some high florals. Towards the end, more subtle fruity notes raise to prominence instead.
The aroma is reminiscent of forest floor, moss, and mushrooms in the middle. However, an unexpected and persistent raspberry scent comes forward subsequently. That was a real surprise to me an gave the end of the session a nice twist.
