A review of Xingyang 2007 Shu Puer by Verdant Tea

Date: 11/12/2012
Company: Verdant Tea
Tea Name:
Tea Type/
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf:
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color:
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 196 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I wanted to finish off this pu-er and I am not sure why. Anyhow, I take the remainder of the Xingyang in my mug and add the boiling water over it. I cover it for five minutes.

When the time elapses, I remove the cover and I find the tea’s color to be that raisin/prune color I had described before. It is the color that comes to mind; another might say darken amber, etc. At first there is this earthy aroma to the tea, but after a few seconds of immersion in the air, one can start to inhale the vapor of cinnamon and yes that soaking or prunes/raisin in the cup and a slight buttery residue that is left on the palette.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

A raisiny tea sounds wonderful; great for fall. I’m still a pu-er newbie; most of the ones I’ve tried are mossy and musky.

Bio

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
