Scent Contamination

by umijoshi » Jul 28th 16 6:58 am

Hi guys,

I was gifted a really special raw Pu'Erh from a customer of mine. I decided to attempt to age it so we can drink it together far into the future. It has been sitting in a humidor for approximately 4 months. Propelyene Glycol which is used for keeping the humidity in check has a subtle aroma to it, but I feel it has concentrated itself in the tea and essentially ruined it.

I can't drink the tea without getting a blast of chemical flavor.

Any advice on 'repairing' this tea?

I'm going to repost this in the Pu`Erh section for some more visibility.
