I ordered a one ounce sample of this, but it doesn’t seem to be available anymore. Here is a link to a blog post about the tea: http://houdeblog.com/?p=140

This is the first sheng puerh I have tasted. The aroma puts me in mind of wood, smoke, earth, creosote. The flavor is brisk, woody, smoky, herbaceous. Full bodied but not as thick as I was expecting. Creates almost a physical sensation at back of throat. Very lingering flavor.

This definitely intrigues me…I can’t wait to try more sheng puerh.

In addition: I have had this twice, and both times felt a tad queasy after the second cup. This feeling went away after a minute or two, replaced by a very settled feeling. Has anyone else had this experience?

That feeling you experienced was ‘cha qi’ or as we refer to it ‘you were teadrunk’. Bigger cha qi means better tea (atleast for some)

Bio

Longtime tea drinker, lifelong tea student. Lapsang Souchong started it for me. My preference is for single origin teas. Aged oolongs and sheng puerhs being a couple favorites. That said, I will always have a spot in my heart for a cup of PG Tips with a splash of soy milk!

I like fruit and spice, but prefer to keep those relegated to herbal blends. Herbals will always have a place in my cupboard for late night sipping.
