From Canton Tea Co

A sensational puerh from a great factory. It delivers many infusions and has a wonderful bright clean taste in a full-bodied liquor. The woodiness is not too pronounced or green and it has a high level of sweetness. Adding a further 2 -3 more years of storage to this brick would make the liquor even smoother and sweeter.

I’m not feeling particularly inspired today so I went for an old faithful rather than something that requires concentration and attention. This is still my go-to shu even after all this time and all these teas that I have been trying.

It brews dark reddish-brown, reflecting beautifully in the glass cha hai and gleaming with an internal light. There is something marvellous about seeing my yu ru pot steaming on the chapan with a full cha hai next to it. The earthy aroma wafts upwards from the tray and I sip the tea down. It is round-ound-ound and rich, a freshly ploughed field. There is no fishiness to the flavour or to the aroma. Lovely. A perfect accompaniment to my lunch (a bacon and stilton sandwich). The flavours seem to complement each other beautifully: sweet, salty, sour and earthy all together. And while I digest it, I read The Wanderer again (Anglo-Saxon poem not Dion or Quo!) and contemplate my need to include so many parenthetical statements in my tasting notes. I should be contemplating my lesson plan for tomorrow, but parenthetical statements just seem so much more interesting than what I am supposed to be doing.

This is lovely. I want to look at the pot of shu and eat a sandwich while you mumble the poem with crumbs spilling out or your mouth (that would never happen, I can’t imagine it)…with proper BBC British vocalization that a Yank like me expects of course. Now I’ll have to go buy Stilton at the cheese shop and cook up some bacon!

Am not very experienced with pu erh but I went for this on basis of cheap price and good reviews. Not disappointed, it isn’t as woody or smoky as some pu erhs with an almost black cherry taste to it. Nice.
