I actually received this before the Purple Tea of Kenya but didn’t get around to it after. A travesty given my love of teas with the word “GOLD!” in them. This bears a lot of similarities to Yunnan Golds both in site, smell and taste. Where it differs is the subtlety of its character. It’s not as “thick” as a Yunnan gold on delivery, instead presenting its berry-sweet, honey-like presence in a fluttery sorta way. It can also take a brew-beating of five minutes far better than a Yunnan can. Approval was met with gusto.
I never thought I’d rate a shu pu’erh so high, but this is unbelievable. One of the most sip-able, addictive teas I’ve had in a long time. Dark as coffee, tastes like milk chocolate, smooth as silk. Amazing, simply amazing. (Disclosure: I have a business relationship with Phoenix Tea Shop…this tea is still amazing, though.)
