What kind of Puerh are you drinking right now?!

Greetings Tea Friends! So what kind of Puerh are you drinking right now?! I am enjoying a session of 2009 Yubang Dong Ban Shan Ancient raw cake!

Spiced Elderberry Pu’er from Verdant – sipdown – very good – sad to see it go. Funny but I have not had a pu’er in a long time and I come here and there is this thread. :)

Hi Sam! I am currently drinking from a 2007 purple bud puerh cake, which is featured here:

http://steepster.com/teas/tea-adventure/34965-purple-bud-puerh

It is very fragrant and rich in flavour and has a thick taste with sweet plum-like notes as well as a dark chocolate aftertaste (my personal description, of course). Overall, it is quite a nice puerh, however, I do prefer a more ripened puerh as I do not fancy the taste that young-raw puerhs give, hehe! :)

Salutations Luckystar!

That Beencha does indeed look very interesting. I’ve had, and enjoyed, Purple bud Puerh. Given your preference, maybe you should put the tea aside for a couple of years!

Just had some Wild Monk maocha from Mandala Tea

Oooh, I was thinking of buying that in cake form! How is it?

Honestly its the best sheng I’ve had :) It is also the most expensive (per gram) I’ve had though.

It’s very crisp and clean tasting, and very mild but not weak if that makes sense. Pretty much no bitterness too.

I keep meaning to write a tasting note for it, but when I brew it up I’m usually too busy enjoying it :P

What year was this Maocha produced? I’ve had a really inexpensive purple tip maocha that was pretty good. It was refreshing with no bitterness at all.

Sammerz, I think it’s 2012
