Messed up teaday for me. After class I had some goo guri, then I tried that tangerine pu-erh. Well, most of the tangerine puerh was crushed, with lots of dust, the inside of the peel had white on it, and it tasted like crap. I've still got 4 more so it will get a few more chances to impress, and a number of years too.
Then I tried the 07 purple leaf pu-erh and found it very interesting. Mellow, and on the uncomplex side, but enjoyable. In fact, since it was fairly cheap, I'm going to buy a few more and use it as one of my "drink through the ages" teas. The leaf is different, so it won't give a good understanding of sheng aging in general, but will be fun nonetheless.
What sucked, is towards the end of the session, I was holding the gaiwan full of purple leaf under the Zojirushi to fill it up... Well, some water splashed onto my hand and I instinctively dropped the gaiwan. An explosion of boiling water and puerh leaf shot around the room and coated everything.
Luckily, I was spared to drink another day.
