This is a nice brick of younger Shou pu’er. I have actually picked up a brick of this for myself and plan on drinking some of it now for sure, but this is one that I think could age decently. Most people are confused by the word “musty” in relation to tea, but in high quality pu’ers there is an indescribable sweet mustiness that is hard to mistake. Needless to say it already possesses some of these qualities. The leaf size is large and it brews up lighter than some lower grade pu’ers that are so commonly found from most American tea companies. Sweet notes of honey remain even through the strongest brews. And of course, make sure to brew this one multiple times.

To sum up: Nothing too out of the ordinary but a nice, sweet and promising brick of Shou.

I am a lover of everything good. Rivers, fields, plains, forests, lakes, mountains, valleys, deserts – people, tea, beer, cheese, wine. But mainly, more than anything, I love God. None of these other things are worth a cent without Him.

P.S. If you’re ever in Milwaukee and looking for someone to drink tea with for an afternoon, don’t hesitate to send a message.
