Thank you Angel at Teavivre for this sample!

This Oriental Beauty is very complex. There are so many different taste and flavors that I really like! It’s smooth and chocolaty. Slightly sweet and a little malty. Buttery, with a small amount of saltiness at times.

The amber colored liquid and cocoa-like aroma, become much much mellow on the 2nd steeping. There is very little of the creamier and thicker taste, more of sheng pu’erh – in the way of a light hay flavor.

I just ordered this last week and it is on its way! Liberteas had sent me a sample and it was too good to resist.

Pureleaf

Good choice ashmanra! It’s hard to believe how nicely different this tea is to other oolongs (as if you can single all other oolongs into one class:). Truth being known, I had 8 cups of this tea back-to-back. Each were very enjoyable!

Did you do the blog thing?

ashmanra

Wiicked: not sure if you were asking me or Pureleaf, but I have gotten samples from Teavivre about four times over the salt eight months or so, just not this particular tea! But Liberteas sent me some in a swap and I loved it! Now, if you were addressing Pureleaf, it is his turn to answer! :)

Nice!
My samples are on the way right now!

ashmanra

wiicked: I think you are going to love them! Mine have all been great. I end up ordering about half of what gets sent, and friends who try it with me have wanted it, too.

That’s awesome
Have you ever ordered a puerh tuocha or cake?
And how big are te samples?

ashmanra

I have ordered lots of their puerh, and have more on the way right now! LOL! I think in the mini tuocha samples there were about five to seven to a pouch? I had to order two packages of it because my non-tea drinking son and his girlfriend liked it so much that they wanted their own. Then I got a sample of Mengku Palace loose puerh and swooned over it. I have that on the way! The other types of tea probably have enough in the sample to make two or three 22 ounce pots at least, and that isn’t counting resteeps.

Haha nice!!!

Bio

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West that has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!

I guess the only way to get the bigger picture is to start with that I love tea. Almost all traditional teas are welcomed, and I have been know to try a few flavored or blended teas.
