It’s a great tea! I’m going to buy 4 cakes at once next time. 2 for aging longer, 2 for consumption while I wait. Ha-ha. I’m glad that you enjoyed this! :)

I bought one of these from ChaWangShop as part of a five pack of different tangerines, 8681,8682,8683,8685 and 8691. Looking forward to trying each one once they’ve settled for a bit.

for my 500TH tasting note, i am pleased to announce that water temperature has a big role in bitterness for sheng and fermentation for shou. my new theory works perfectly for me:

“turning off the kettle shortly after the water begins to rumble, that this water temp (about 90c-100c) is perfect for puerh for me. With raw (sheng),there is little bitterness. with ripe (shou), the earth/fermentation taste is not as strong”.

this tea normally has a somewhat strong earth/fermentation taste. but my new way works nice with this tea

200 °F / 93 °C 7 g 6 OZ / 165 ML
