TEA> Puerh> Looseleaf Pu (for more)

Puerhshop.com(review) (not available anymore). 6.49/100g  = 1.8/oz ~ 21$/lb … mmm…..

Leaf: chopped loose pu. you know the kind.

Method: 4g 4oz 4min or so, and various other variants…

Flavor: good loosepu flavor, you know: some dark chocolate-like hints, wood/bark, no camphor, no pond, no dust, medium astringency mostly sides of tongue.

Aftertaste: now this is the interesting part of this pu. Its quite magical at times, one time i got this quite strong sweet aftertaste (esp when breathing thru mouth, but it was all over the mouth not just back of throat), recently i got another change in the aftertaste but i forgot how to describe it… Havent been able to reliably reproduce the experiences, so might be related to what i ate/mindset (tho most teas haven’t given me such a curious experience)

Overall: quite enjoyable & $sheep !

and some video of the pu infusing and rising some steam…
