Raq Puer Material
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
From their website:
Made from quality Lincang material, the tea Smooch is convenient for on-the-go tea brewing or travel situations where carrying a cake is not an option. The Smooch brews up sweet and easy to drink, with a charming fragrance.
Each sample is in a hand rolled ball shape of roughly 8 grams, though each sample varies slightly by weight.
Prior to brew: Vegetal scent prior to brew and while breaking apart the ball of tea.
Brewed: This is a light brewed tea
Scent: Slight vegetal scent.
Flavor: There is a slight bitter tea with a hay background with a mint undertone that warms the mouth. No bitter aftertaste.
Sentiments: This tea is packaged in small balls for you to travel with. I love that idea and I can’t wait to travel and take one with me or two or more.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “7“.
Till next sip…
