Recent Tasting Notes


This aged puerh is VERY mellow, almost to the point of not getting a clear taste profile.

The color is vibrant deep red; the aroma at first is slightly musty, but then once tea leaves hydrate, becomes like a very aged tea.

It steeps very fast, you can literally watch red color tendrils drizzle down from the floating tea chunks in the pot. (best in clear or glass)

I cannot say I love this tea. It is very mild, and this leads me to believe that a ripe AND aged puerh probably loses much flavor concentration over time.

This 1990 puerh actually DOES have hou yun; the tongue and back of throat feel coated and the aftertaste is a lingering “old tea” reminder.
