From Camellia Sinensis

This loose tea is composed of a mixture of large dark leaves with hints of gray. After rinsing, the leaves scent the air with fragrances of the forest floor and leather. The liquor obtained is silky and full, and raises of nuances vegetation (lichen) and fruit (prunes). The finish leaves a pleasant mineral sensation on the palate which deepens with each sip, a desired effect in the realm of old Pu Er.

I wanted to try an older pu-erh, taste and smell the difference, so I gave this one a try.

It has a strong earthy smell and the description of leaving a pleasant mineral sensation is absolutely correct. It’s quite comforting. However, I thought that the taste was slightly thin, or I should say, thinner than I expected. Overall, it’s an enjoyable experience, and I would still recommend it.

woooooo! Another puerh from dexter I’m working from home today so i’m going to try and spend some time with a few of the raw puerhs that i have started to accumulate in my cupboard. I generally prefer ripe…so i need to focus on exploring more raw to figure out what i love.

First steep: holy mother this smells like when you pull carrots out of wet gardens. Sipping on this, i’m getting leather, mushroom notes…but there’s a sweetness hiding in the background. Really interesting…more to come.

…..
Later steeps, this never stops reminding me of the garden but i wouldn’t call the steeps overly earthy. there’s just something about drinking them that reminds me of that fresh from the garden memory. Really enjoyed this one today.

OMGsrsly

Ooo, that sounds good! Much better than leather-smoke-omg. :)

Sil

When sharing this with my girlfriend, our reactions to tea are always very different from each other. That being because she is a coffee drinker and doesn’t really consider herself a teaist by any means, however, she still keeps me company while sitting for gongfu of some good cha. This experience, is note worthy because our reactions are hilarious. Hers being more so.

Her: “Ugh, this tastes like an old wet leather boot.”
Me: “AH!! Oh my god! What?! Holy shit!! This tastes like GOD!”

Had a bit of this recentley from a sample. Oh, boy. Brewed this in my Gaiwan. This is what aged pu’erh is supposed to taste like. 20 years has been very kind to this tea. There is so much complexity. Heavy on the mineral, light on the bitter. I got through NEARLY 30 INFUSIONS on this. It lasted about 3 hours. The Chi has evolved into what feels like getting a Hadouken in the throat chakra, and then getting a nice warm cuddle. Hits you hard at first and then gives you the lovin. This may be one of the best teas I’ve ever had, Smoky, beachy, roasted nuts, pine. Viscous is nice, and leaves your tongue slightly numb and wanted a whole lot more.
Not too tippy, and doesn’t have that overwhelming fermented taste. This was a hell of an experience.

Seriously! I was getting inpatient too, I had things to that morning! But, yes, it lasted forever.
