Today I am reviewing 2020 Good Man in a Storm, which is a puer tea from White2Tea.
This is supposedly a blend of spring-harvest Menghai tea leaves
Paul states that this this was a donation to the political foundation Black Lives Matter.
I actually didn’t purchase this tea, but rather, I received it through a yearly puer tea sampling program setup by LiquidProust. Thanks to him for supplying the tea for this review.
Vintage: June 6th, 2020
Origin: Menghai, China
I decided to brew this tea in a small 120ml yixing teapot with normal bottled water, which is technically reverse-osmosis filtered.
Steeped for 20 seconds.
There’s a slight sweetness and floral nature to it, but the leaves have yet to give, and it predominantly tastes like water, but it seems rather compressed, so that’s not unusual.
The aroma has a note of sweet lemon candy.
Steeped for 30 seconds.
The color certainly looks darker this time.
Malty, floral and mineral
Flavor notes: Malt, fresh flowers, lemon candy granite rock,
Very strong huigan, as the tea as a cooling sensation on the palette which seems to last for several minutes.
Steeped for 40 seconds.
The flavor has really rounded out and become a lovely tea.
It has a little sharpness to the flavor profile which is rather enjoyable.
