My instructions on this sample called for gong fu which would have been impossible as I had to head down to go to work. So I fudged and brewed it up using my Breville OneTouch tea maker setting the water temperature at 200 degrees and a steep time of 2 minutes. The resulting liquor is a deep reddish brown in coloring with an aroma that reminds me of walking in one of our old growth forests after a rain.
Tastewise this is a mellow puerh which is perfect as an introduction to this style of tea. It is thick and smooth with flavors of molasses, spices and baked peaches. There is also a dryness that settles on the tongue after every sip which is quite pleasant.
I found this tea to be an easy drinker and quite delicious. The price is reasonable and worth picking up to use as a gateway tea.
