bamboo puerh : 죽통차




first fragrance from the bamboo shoot is not so strong as before. the original fragrance was quite strong with a more charcoal smell.

upon first rinsing, the fragrance is immediate and gives a slight chocolate scent, but is quite lucid.

the first real draw is followed by by the chocolate scent but infused with a hint of citrus-like representation. the initial taste is light and i am a bit surprised as this was quite the strong drink before. anticipating more character upon the second draw.






second steeping does not produce the smokey taste...

third comes along and awakes the smokey taste, it's a nice reminder of the earlier taste i experienced about 2 months ago...

i'll enjoy this one myself now as it has been quite some time since drinking this tea...
