I had this on the weekend – it was a really beautiful day so I took it as an excuse to get out to the park, crack into the cake and have some tea out in nature (w/ some comic book reading too)! This is such an amazing ripe puer; it’s warm and woody, but more than that it has this eerily accurate buttery pie crust type of flavour with undertones of smooth, coating black cherries!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we get a 2020 pressing…
Seven steeps total, which was pretty darn good for carafe water and an outdoor session. I used a large cup for this session, and stacked two steeps at a time – except for the first steep which I had on its own.
