Recent Tasting Notes
I’ve had this for 2 years, drinking it on occasion. I’ve discovered over time that it’s a very inconsistent tea. The material pried from near the bing hole usually brews up dark, rich and full, whereas when I pry from just the edges it’s lighter bodied and has thinner flavor. The rich, full cups make me want to have it again and the light ones cause me to put it away for months.
Today I tried a mixture of the two and it comes across as a decent, clean, medium bodied shou, but nothing spectacular. Since we’re in the cooler months now and I’m drinking more shou I think I’ll leave it out until it’s gone.
Bought this about a year ago. Drank it yesterday after putting it away for many months because, it seemed to me when first trying it and drinking nearly half the cake, to have lost it’s tea essence sitting around for 8 or 9 years since it was made. But yesterday, after drinking a lot of raw and very little ripe for the last month or so, I was amazed and pleasantly surprised to suddenly find it unexpectedly and remarkably delicious – definitely creamy, caramel and date flavored. It also lasted through many, many steeps, albeit without much change.
This is a nice slightly sweet ripe puerh. This is an excellent tea. It has very little fermentation flavor left, very little. This was not an expensive puerh. It is a good value too. It also has a dates flavor.
I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 8.7g leaf and boiling water for 30 sec.
