I’m not a Pu’erh expert, but I am a big fan. I like the heritage in the process of this tea. It reminded me of slightly weak Darjeeling though instead of a hearty Pu’erh. I probably won’t have this again.
Sorry it was weak …I like good puerh too!
Wow! Where did you get a bit of this one? This sheng has been sold out for about a year now. Whoever gave it to you was a kind soul.
It’s true that this one won’t be musty and hearty- but then again, it’s not shu pu’er. It’s a sheng (green.. living). These age more slowly. As this is only about 6 years old, the living flavor is to be expected and enjoyed for itself. It’ll take another ten years before it becomes as dark as shu pu’er is, but it’ll be even more complex.
If there’s any of your sample left, I’d suggest hiding it away and trying it again as a real treat in another couple of years. You won’t be disappointed.
Thank you Spoonvonstup. I had this with a friend who has more tea than she could ever drink. I make sure and get a cup of something interesting whenever we visit.
