From Taste of Mellowness sample @ Pu Ehr Shop:
Seeing Triox's Noritake cup inspired me to get my Blue Rose out of it's padded storage and use it! I tried out the 2006 Bhangtai Banna toucha from the Taste of Mellowness sample from PES. It's fabulous, love it. HATE all the extras
that came with it! I tried to gently pry it apart to save the tag imbedded and ripped it. Found what looked like a hair, but was probably a nylon thread. Then I found an actual cotton thread from someone's clothing. Then I found a minuscule pebble (I hope) in the center! I realize it's probably no worse than the average Oscar Meyer Weiner. I'll still drink it despite the gruesome findings! No rodent parts (recognizable
It is absolutely mellow. Smooth feel, almost silky, and very clean, mild taste on the second infusion. I can barely detect a mild earthy fragrance with camphor at the end. My tongue might be ruined from years of coffee drinking, but I can hardly taste any of the camphor as much as I can smell. I know I have enough pu ehr, and i brewed one minute +/-.
Went back for a second infusion, examined the toucha to find another 2 tiny pieces of itsy bitsy minuscule rock. In the center, not around the outer or inside edge.
Forgive me, but did anyone else try and post their review on this?
DUH, Bears did. His infusion looks darker and about the same amount of tea. hmmmmmmm . . .
