Recently I had the opportunity to taste two puerh teas from Teavivre.com.
The first one was called Lotus Leaf Raw, Pu-erh Mini Toucha, from Yunnan, China.
The smell at first hit me as vegetable, it had a nice yellow appearance when brewed.
The taste was not as vegetable as I expected from the scent.
It is a hard one too describe in flavor as it wasn't particularly smokey or floral,
but more of a fresh mown field with a tiny touch of caramel without the sweetness.
A very straight forward, simple tea.
The second was Fengqing Zhuan Cha Raw Puerh, Brick Tea 2005 from Yunnan, China.
The leaves smelled a bit like spinach, but after brewing I could smell the smokey scent.
The color was lighter than I expected and the taste was smooth to the mouth.
This was my favorite beginning with the very first sip.
I loved the warm, cozy feel it created, like sitting by the fire on a cool evening.
This one is perfect for Autumn, but both are quite nice in very different ways.
If you are beginning to think Autumn/Fall both of these teas I would recommend.
