two days of this tea – im in a Puerh heaven. it is very very good puerh, complex, first 5 steeps maybe so unlike each other.
5g 100ml gaiwan 212F
rinse pause 5/5/10/10/15/15/20/30/ sec etc
Wet leaves have strong smell of dried apricots
1st steep produced brownish reddish clear tea. its sweet but had some sourdough notes at the very end of the sip
2nd steep clean and sweet. as cooled introduced some cream
3rd steep it smelled and tasted of strong cream of wheat.
here i stopped taking notes, it was a midnight. some steeps were mellow, then introduced more flavors. i wasnt paying attention. i just enjoyed.
i have to mention i haven’t noticed any earthiness, leather, cedar or barn smell. this tea is very clean.
I think I should stop rating Puerh. its so hard to put a number for me

It’s not tea related, but made me remember how when my older daughter was a toddler she called it “cweamy weep”.


Haha, kids when they little just start talking are so adorable. I used to write down some funny stuff.


Another favorite was “flumbingo” for flamingo.


This is a “Special cake” for us at home. We pull it out every year on Valentines and Christmas eve to drink. It has been aging well and we have a backup cake also. I also purchased one from 2012 to age and sit till we drink the other two.


It’s so good. It’s not giving up!


sounds beautiful!


My writing doesn’t do a justice to this wonderful tea. You are better at it;)

i had a morning cuppa of this tea. i didnt change my mind. it is very good wake up cup. i wonder whats the name of the tea. According to Hugo its Summer Harvest Yunnan tea. i think i should ask them.


On one of my previous tasting notes they said it was a blend but only of Yunnans.

Hi! Thanks for your friendly words. Yes—Full-Steam is technically a “blend” though it is also, technically “single origin” and one type of tea. Confusing, right?

Full-Steam doesn’t have a traditional name because it is made specifically for us by our farm in Yunnan, China. You could, if you like, call it a “Dian Hong” style of tea—but this doesn’t really mean anything other than that it is a black tea from Yunnan Province.

Keep a close eye on this: There’s good things on Full-Steam coming up: http://www.hugotea.com/blogs/hugo-tea-journal/tagged/travel


Thanks for the link, I loved reading the journal.
