Tea of the Day!
I recently received some tea samples from the wonderful people at Teavivre so I just made my first cup of the 2007 Mengku Palace Ripened Golden Buds Pu-erh! The Doctor had a blast helping me out too ~_^
This tea has a wonderful earthy aroma and the taste is incredibly smooth with a hint of sweetness! The tea held up very well and I was able to steep 3 times and still have a strong cup! I used a rounded teaspoon with 6 ounces of boiling water, gave the tea a quick rinse, and then steeped for 4 minutes.
As I usually mention, I like my teas very strong so I prepare pu-erh western style; you may wish to steep for less time if you are not a fan of very strong tea!
The tea is so mellow that you shouldn’t need any cream or sugar to enjoy :)
