From Camellia Sinensis

This Pu Er with large leaves from the capital of Yunnan has been aged for 20 years. Mineral notes and woody characteristics are revealed in the first wetting. The dark brown-red liquor is sweet, rich and clear. Hints of spices (anise) and camphor extend to a vegetal finish reminiscent of fresh mushrooms. A treat for rainy days!

Quantity of leaf / 250ml of water 1 tea spoon
Infusion Time 4 to 5 minutes
Infusion temperature 95 °C

I feel like I have finally made it “to the big time”. I’m drinking 20 year aged shu from a proper yixing.

The dry leaf smells of cocoa and applewood smoke and old leather.

The wet leaf smells of cavern water.

The liqueur is a roller coaster ride of sweetness, camphor, cave walls and bonfire. The mouthfeel is relentless and lingers for minutes after each sip.

The second steep has calmed a bit. Deep, and thick, musty and sweet.

God I love shu pu-erh…

haha it is always dangerous to read what other people think as you drink a tea. I am totally getting the applewood smoke!

This one is interesting. Though I’m not really that satisfied with it. Aromas were earthy, but with some faint fishy aroma, and a fairly dominant camphor. I also got some faint fruity tones of cactus (opuntias).

Taste is quite soft. Not as complex as I was hoping, but shous are my least favorite type of pu-erh.
