We’ve been looking for some time at Cloudwalker to find another pu erh tea in pressed form that will be affordable to our clients but still meet our very high expectations for the teas we sell. This one is a gem. I’ve had it several times now, but this last time I really got the leaf quantity, and steep time just right. I steeped it a little longer and used a little more leaf than I usually do with pu erh and the dark red/brown liquor that resulted showed I’d done the right thing. This tea is sublime. The aroma hints of a walk in the woods on a fall day and the flavour is sweet with a hint of the sheng green bitter, but just a hint mind. And the energy. I felt it blasting through every chi blockage in my body. After drinking the Da Yu Lin this tea’s energy was particularly potent! In one word, I’ve already said it: sublime.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a kid when I used to have a strong cup of Earl Grey with my Grandmother. Six years ago I went to Taiwan, met a tea master and have been really appreciating Chinese tea in the gong fu cha tradition ever since. I even started a small online company selling the teas I can procure from tea masters in Taiwan and China. Can’t find a good aged pu erh? I’ve got it. Don’t like the cliff tea you got online? I bet I’ve got a better one. Want to try some different kinds of oolong? Got those too. I’ve got lots of gong fu tea brewing accessories as well.

Also, if you ever have a question about tea, accessories or brewing, I’d be happy to answer them. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll look it up! I have access to a wide range of tea literature that is out of print which I collected while in Taiwan.

Cloudwalker Teas is quite literally a two-person tea distributor. We believe in the teas we bring to the world through our online store are better than anything at almost every other place. We are tea purists, which means we don’t believe in mixing teas post production. A pu erh is simply that, pu erh. A green a green, oolong is oolong. We believe that teas have so many naturally different aromas and flavours that it is a shame to cover them up with flavourings and flowers.

When we review a tea, we take into account three components: aroma, flavour and chi energy. A good tea must have all three of these components to be considered at our store.
