A good example of a puerhshop ripe everyday drinker. I find that it has no distinguishing features, but has a fine flavor, a bit acidic, deep and earthy, and a pretty good caffeine kick. A solid performer for the price, though nothing special.

It was so tightly compressed that I ended up ruining a good amount on my first attempt at loosening. Luckily, once I got the hang of it, and brewed a pot, I was impressed. Even forgetting for a moment that it is a choppy leaf, the taste is very smooth and full. I will definitely order again.

This shou is incredibly smooth. Golden brown, clear brew. Creamy, stone fruits and clean taste. I enjoyed it a lot. On my wish list for Puerhshop it goes

This cake is very tightly compressed and would be a good one to age. The flavor is a “subtle” richness that is very rich and enjoyable. Rich dark infusions with no noticeable wou dei taste. A wonderful cup of tea. I will be getting another to age as I think this cake will be drunk quickly! This is my first taste of a Bada mountain tea and it gets a ‘thumbs up’. Very nice.

What is “wou dei” taste?

Did this tea have off flavors typically associated with young shou pu-erh?

mrmopar

Hi lukep, “wou dei” is the barnyard aroma and licorice taste in a lot of recent fermented shou. Big factories like Dayi will “hold” young shou till this aroma/taste subsides. Usually about 6 months to a year. You can still buy young shou but I always let it sit for a year till I try it.

So you are saying this pu-erh is not ready for drinking? I’m considering purchasing.

mrmopar

Oh no Lukep, it is ready now with nothing off about the cake I got.

lukep

awesome. thx!

lukep

One more question:
Did you find the cake consistent in quality throughout?

mrmopar

I haven’t gotten to the middle yet but I would think it would be the same as the outside.

Just spoke with the owner of puerhshop, and apparently MGH doesn’t do sandwich cakes. So that’s good to hear.
