Pleasant if a little shallow. Better than some cooked puerh I’ve had that border on fish market pungency. A great introductory shu puerh; earthy, cooling, smooth though not as complex as I want it to be.

Shu+

How is this? I’m suspicious since Pu Erh is supposed to be Chinese…

cultureflip

meh. its ok. not nasty like some other shu but not really good either.

I can’t wait to my sampleset arrives!

Ricky

Samplers are so much fun! More companies have to jump on board and start producing sampler packs.

Rijje

…every company should have samplers (and cute sampler tins!)

Ricky

Instead of plastic / foil baggies?

Yeah, only company that packs sampler tins I can think of is Adagio.

Cofftea

Actually as a person who has almost exclusively sample sizes (2oz and smaller), while cute is attractive, I’d rather have resealable opaque bags. Those tins are just too cumbersome to store when you have as many as I do! lol. But then again most people probably don’t have as many as I do lol.

I should just sign off Steepster until I can get to my Canton sampler pack. (It’s sitting on my office desk while I’m away.) The tea-envy is getting to me.

Okay…it’s been a HELLISH Day! So…in short with more reviews later…
DRY smells like fresh cut zucchini and once infused smells like a mellow green or white tea. Taste is REALLY yummy…

COOL (eventho I am drinking HOT), Cucumber-like, nutty, crisp, clean, delightful!!!!

Cofftea

Cucumber and nutty… what an odd combo!

TeaEqualsBliss

Odd is GOOD

LOL

Floral and honey notes, certainly! But what I also find interesting about this is…the scent. The scent reminds me of being out in nature…like in the middle of the woods or even on a beach…those familiar nature-smells! Then when you taste it…it’s not really what you expect…altho even more pleasant. There is a soothing and lingering yummy aftertaste, too!

Even better than I remember. Very intense flavor.

Enjoyable. Strong honey notes. I prefer Canton Tea Co’s Magnolia Blossom Dan Cong, however, this tea may be more accessible.

Simply exquisite. Sweet, with a bit of a tingly “shocker” in the finish. I am overwhelmed by this tea.

Still working with this tea, but it already seems remarkable.

Creamy, Tangy, and a little semi-sweet grassy type taste. Light and Clean. Very nice!

My cup today is the first from my new Yixing pot, which I seasoned overnight. I still think that clay is the best material for brewing Chinese and Taiwanese teas.

Not as rich as I would like to be, but decent so far. Will try more.

A Vietnamese Pu Erh? Odd.

Lainie Petersen

It is odd. Good for my tummy, though.

Cofftea

The odd intrigues me and I’d normally be on that like white on rice (Asian pun intented lol), but I’m not a shu fan.

Lainie Petersen

I can drink either shu or sheng, but find that shu is really good at calming a tummyache.

Still yummy. Good for multiple infusions, too. Tiny glass gong fu teapot works well. (100ML)

I prepared this with a little more leaf, and nutty/creamy notes emerge. Nice.
