6g/14cl teapot: 35’’,30’’,45’’,60’’,1’30,2’30,3’30,5’ and more !
During the first infusion the taste was grainy and a little bit fruity. Then it switched to something more flowery and sweet, then it tastes between a dan cong and an oriental beauty. The leaves were endless.
A tea to enjoy calmly and with a lot of time ahead.
Nice fruity taste during the first infusions then a more grainy/malty when reaching the 4th and 6th infusions. Strong after taste.
Brewed in a 13cl teapot, quick rinse 10’’, then 35’’, 30’’, 40’’, 50’’, 60’’, 1’30. Doesn’t last very long though.
C’est effectivement un bon Puerh, velouté, gras, sombre. Notes de tourbe, un peu sucré, il est généreux aux réinfusions.
Brewed in a 15cl teapot:
30’’ rinse then 15’’-20’’-25’’-30’’-35’’-40’’-45’’-60’’-1’30
Incredible ! A strong taste of old wood and a faint sweety/fruity after taste.
One of the best pu erh I ever had.
Gong Fu Cha Style I used:
Beauté Académique by Maison des 3 Thes, Taiwan oolong, 5.5gr in Yixing 7oz teapot; water Sant’Anna sorgente Rebruant 95°.
0 – foot’s water
1 – 45’’
The color shines between amber and topaz. The hot noise takes memories of desert with tiny fresh touch of lavender. Follow more vegetable sensation of toasting and dry wood, always together with a spice herbs like a dry rosemary. Again yellow peony, undergrowth, cooked tomato. At the end all remember me something like a “grandmother’s drawer”.
In mouth stats serious, austere: begins angular, but quickly the soft invades the mouth. Progression taste develops on this theme as something angular submerged by a soft cushion and shake itself to come to the surface. The persistent is long and played on brown/yellow tones, comes back undergrowth, dry herbs, nuts, toasts and dry flowers. Distant peeps some brief hints of ripe summer.
2 – 45’’
Appears tinged with a topaz color with orange highlights. It smells of autumn, pine resin, puffs of dried lavender, undergrowth and woody tones; shows the almond between the nuts and everything is wrapped in a bouquet of flowers which still dominates the yellow peony. The mouth opens with a patina of softness that sticks to the palate. Then emerge sharp and woody feelings. The finish is dominated by feelings of tannic: green wood, green dried nuts that became licorice root any seconds after deglutition.
3 – 1’ 20’’
Topaz with increasingly determined orange reflections. Absolutely floral noise, with hints of yellow peony, almond flower, thistle; all is mixed with more mature and slightly bittering notes of chestnut honey.
Tasting proves round and balanced. The soft and hard notes invading the mouth wrapped tightly to one another. At the end of this triumphant march in the mouth is an explosion and a blaze of aromas that seem to never want to end.
I do again:
4 – 2’ 30’’
5 – 3’ 45’’
6 – 5’
and found still pleasure in this tea.
I’ve only tried a little of all the teas that Maison des 3 Thes sells.
I wanted to know why their prices are so high …
This one is one of the cheapest (and it’s price is already high compared to most tea houses).
I brewed this one in a zhong (12 cl) : 20’’ – 30’’ – 45’’ – 60’’ – 1’30 – 2’30.
I didn’t put a lot of leaves since I’ve read on internet that this tea can quickly give a bitter result.
The taste at first isn’t very strong, but the after taste is ! Fruity, oily. The taste is pure and plain : no off-taste coming from over roasting or something.
I’m almost sure I could have done another brew. Next time I will try with more leaves.
So yeah, this tea is a bit expensive compared to what you can buy elsewhere, but very good.
Brewed in a small teapot (20 cl). Good Pu-Erh.

This tea is very powerful, taste like a cup of flower.
The scent cup has a strong sweet and caramel smell.
