From Cloudwalker Teas

Sweet, smooth and sparkling. As with all of our teas at Cloudwalker, three year old Dian Hong is a high level pu erh tea. It combines an aquamarine floral taste with fine up-lifting chi characteristics. Dian Hong is a loose leaf pu erh tea processed similar to that of a black tea. It is already deep and rich with full and complex flavors. It is at once enlivening and cooling. A full, floral and rich tea. This tea is an excellent introduction to pu erh, or to entertain guests who have not yet experienced the earthy nature of these fine Chinese teas.

I drink this when I’m looking for something closer to the more complete fermentation of a black tea, while still wanting a hint of the pu erh earthiness: Dian Hong always delivers. The aroma is indeed sweet smelling for a pu erh and the flavour speak of hints of chicory and perhaps black licorice. Energy is light and breezy.

I highly recommend this tea for those interested in trying pu erh, but have traditionally not liked it. This is a good tea; trust me.

I’m glad I bought a bit of this tea. I’ve drank very few pu-ehrs, but I’d like to become more familiar with that type of tea.

@Jillian: This is definitely a good pu erh to transition into pu erh with because it bridges the gap between pu erh and black tea.

I cannot believe it took me so long to try this. As with most pu-erh teas, I was very hesitant to try it, because, well, even though I am acquiring a taste for pu-erh, it still scares me a bit.

But this is really good. If this was the first pu-erh I had ever tried, I would not have been so afraid of it for so long! This is something I could envision myself drinking on a daily basis, it’s so good. Now, I don’t believe I’ve ever said that about another pu-erh that I’ve tried, but I’m saying it about this one! It’s that good.

The second infusion is even better. It is smoother (if that’s possible!) and sweeter. I think… I may have just fallen in love with a pu-erh! I never thought that would happen!

Many of the Pu-erhs I have had from Cloudwalker Teas are making me change my mind about Pu-erhs! This one is semi-woodsy and semi-malty! There is an ever-so-slight sweetness to it but it’s still fairly masculine. This is pretty good, indeed!

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss! This pu-erh is very mellow. It’s smooth with an earthiness flavor to it. Some slight floral notes as well. Glad I got the chance to try it!!

Shu+*

Nice and soothing to the stomach while still stimulating the palate. This one is not going to give you the sometimes unwelcome bottom-heavy blackness some other shu puerh deliver. Instead, the tone is lifted a bit providing a nicer, quieter, more geltle experience (thus the little star). I’ve also noticed a subtle edge not present in other cooked puer reminiscent of a soft Yunnan red. Again, it’s subtle and gently lifts the flavor out of the murky depths of lesser shu.

I’ve had this kicking around in my cupboard for years but as this is a pu-erh I doubt that the extra bit of aging hurt it too much. This is very kind pu-erh and one I’d probably recommend to someone who had never tried a plain pu-erh before. It has that earthy flavour characteristic of pu-erh, but though it’s distinct it’s also quite gentle and mixed with a bit of malty smoothness. There’s a sweet undertone and I agree with the other bloggers who think that there’s a slight floral note to the tea as well. This tea just might encourage me to drink pu-erh more often.
