This was from the generous Dexter3657, who has sent many pu’erh samples, this being of them…I thank you so very much!!

This one falls on the lighter side of pu’erh. From the name I kin of expected that it would brew to a lighter colour…deep golden colour.

The taste is lighter as well. There is light earthy quality that puts to mind the ravine and trails that beast and I traverse. The tea is a little woodsy…but not overpowering. It is a pleasing outdoorsy taste.

I usually add creamer to the darker pu’erhs, but it is not required in this case. This one I did straight up. This sample will have me looking at more raw pu’erhs…thank you Dexter for introducing me to a variety of pu’erhs!

I am currently on steep 2, and I anticipate several more steepings.

The brewed colour is now deeper, as is the taste. Earthy clay-like taste, but still pleasing.

I so love pu’erhs.

I haven’t tried this yet. I am so happy that you liked it. I look forward to trying it. I don’t have a lot of sheng either, I really need to explore it more. I’ve enjoyed the few I’ve tried.

Bio

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
