From Asha Tea House

Taste- smooth, rich, earthy. Smell- fresh, of nature. This ‘05 is cooked or more accurately fermented. During the process the leaves are wetted and the natural organisms are allowed to thrive. It’s said that Pu’er cakes composed of big leaves age better because of inherent depth of flavor in the big leaves. This is in contrast to cakes made of small, tippy leaves which have a much richer flavor in their earlier years.

This is earthy and strong. I personally like it this way. It truly is an eye opener as well. I love watching it pour out of the Yixing and the liquor is the color of the pot. A dark, dark Reddish brown. On a very cold day here at the Jersey Shore it is warming my body nicely. I have not rinsed any Pu’erhs lately. The second cup is far better than the first with a camphor, forest floor flavor. For the price, this is a very good everyday affordable and enjoyable Pu’erh….

More high quality tea near you !! I just bought a cake called Yunnan Chitsu Pingcha. I thought it was Pu’er..

Correction: it is Pu’er… Made by CNNP. I bought it for $8.99 at the Asian market. It might suck it may not. It may be good in the future. Stay tuned….
