I got some more tea from Teavivre! I think cake teas (tea pressed into cakes that you break off to brew) are super cool so I busted out the sample of Fengquing Golden Buds Ripened Pu-erh Cake Tea.
This is a great pu-erh. It doesn’t have any of the bitterness or sharpness even on the first brew. It of course is pretty earthy with a fresh forest soil taste (in a good way) but has a bit of a sweet taste. It re-steeps amazingly so I can drink this all morning (and honestly all afternoon) with the same leaves.
