I’m finally beginning to understand what is meant by a tea having a “strong cha ‘Qi’”. I’m normally a pretty thorough rationalist so talk of a tea’s qi just makes me roll my eyes. However, I’m beginning to see that something real is meant. The tea brings a great sense of relaxation, sensuality and feeling of happiness and well-being as I resteep and drink it. I think I understand why PeteG is able to drink puerhs at night without harming his sleep. Perhaps I could with this tea as well.

As I move through the steepings and re-steepings of this tea it develops a sweet, fruity, slightly floral taste. There is a tiny bit of sharpness with a note of resin as well. It has fragrance notes of apricot and lychee and sweet honey. Very nice tea.

This sounds so different from pu-erhs I’m accustomed to. I’m going to have to seek out some uncooked stuff. [That’s what this is, right?]

It is quite nice. My favorite is still the Imperial Concubine Aroma puerh but this one is quite delicious. The big difference between this one and the Imperial Concubine is in the relaxing quality this tea has. I’m going to keep this in mind as I head back to work next week and have to deal with stress.

@takgoti Yes, it is labeled as “raw” or “sheng”. My plan is to send you some of the Imperial Concubine Aroma when the large beeng I ordered comes from puerhshop.com in a few days.

I’m really loving these pu-erhs! I’m resisting going to puerhshop.com though for fear of going broke.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
