This review is going to be done in my new yixing teapot from teavivre so some of the points I’m making will be about the teapot.

Dry smell: This tea has a very nice dry smell. It has no fishiness. It is lighter and sweeter smelling than various other puerhs I’ve tried. It has a light aroma of wet tree bark and a dough like smell.

Taste: This tea has a nice dry flavor. I can sense a woody flavor and also a wet earthy flavor. It is a lot darker flavor than I expected. Although it is not sweet like it smelled, it has no astringency and is very smooth. I can still taste what I sensed as the doughy smell. It tastes like a cracker. This is a nice smooth Puerh and I’ll be ordering more soon.

Wet smell: The wet smell is a lot like the dry smell, it is just lacking the sweet scent. The pot adds a deep earthy smell

What the pot does: I drank this tea a couple times before I got my yixing pot from my gaiwan. I was somewhat skeptical of how much the yixing would actually affect the flavor but there is a notable difference. It gets rid of the natural sharpness the tea has and flattens it out. I can tell it is absorbing some of the flavor because it is slightly lighter, and I am very excited to see what the pot provides after it is fully seasoned.

a good tea from the menghai factory. the v93 is a favorite of mine.

Insence&Tea

Mmhmm, it’s really good. I’m excited to see how it progresses in my yixing pot. After a month or so using it I’ll probably do a side by side comparison review with the pot and my gaiwan.

i have these v93s going all the way back to 2007. i liked the 2010 so much i got a 250 gram toucha of it. i do believe you will really enjoy this one.it is a great choice of a pu-erh.

Bonnie

Hi mrmopar! So where did you get your tangerine puerh? I saw them on yunnan sourcing but no shipping to the usa.

mrmopar

bonnie i think they actually came from jerry ma on ebay. if i remember right.

Insence&Tea

It’s not a pain at all, I always appreciate recommendations. And yes I seasoned the pot right after unboxing it.

mrmopar

yay! good pu in a good pot. uh, oh that sounds funny.

Insence&Tea

Haha, it sure does.

Hi,
I am depressed as always but laughed at reading this. I have no good wares as yet. Perhaps next year if I am around. This post reminded me that I have some Pu-erh (xingyang 2007 Shu Puerh from Verdant Tea) to get to. I have some Toucha from Tea Vivre to get to as well. The review was a lovely read, if you don’t mind me saying so. I am depressed always since poor and in collection with loans defaulted etc. So the world is not nice place for me. I review tea, not good but I try. Good work/review.

seule a good cuppa always helps me wind down and forget the troubles of the day. i hope you can also do the same. i just forget about it all focus on the warmth and aroma and taste of the tea in my hands.

Bio

I’m new to the high quality tea world and eager to get started tasting and enjoying a whole new world of flavor. I’m a high school senior, 18 years old, and have been an avid tea drinker my whole life. Previously I would drink generic tea bags. Recently I have been getting into Gong Fu Cha and loose leaf teas. Not only do I enjoy the flavors, but the ceremony is a nice way to relax and unwind after a hard days work. I aspire to try many different teas and meet others from the tea community. If anyone has any teas they would be willing to send as samples I would be very thankful to you for helping expand my tea knowledge and pallet.
