From Dream About Tea

This green Pu-Erh beeng cha is made sun-dried green tea. Over the past 11 years, it has naturally developed some mellow and smooth taste that only cooked Pu-Erh teas usually have.

Brewing: Use a strong tea knife to carefully pry out a chunk of leaves equal to about 1 T and place it in a teapot. Rinse by covering with boiling water and quickly pour off. Cover with boiling water again and let steep 5-30 seconds and serve. Brew the tea up to five infusions.

Brewing vessel: Gaiwan or Yixing teapots is preferred

Storage: Keep Tse Chi Green Beeng Cha in porous wrap or container to allow it to age further. No direct exposure to sunlight and water.

When I visited Dream About Tea in Chicago I asked the proprietor for advice about Pu-erh. I told him that I hadn’t found any I truly liked and that they upset my stomach. He asked what I had tried and so I told him the most recent experiment Tuocha: Camel’s Breath. He told me that Tuocha is made with broken leaves and that I would likely enjoy full leafed pu-erhs better. This rang so true for me I felt like slapping myself for not realizing it. Afterall, I prefer full leaf teas of every other sort of tea, why not pu-erh? I asked him for a recommendation for a beginner pu-erh tea and he showed me this one.

I rinsed it with hot water and then brewed it for 30 seconds (as per directions found on the web). Brewed up it smells like a combination of honey, light sweet fruits and apricot. The taste is very light, though that may be due to the 30 second brew time. I am looking forward to the second steeping which I may do a longer steep. There is no bitterness, no compost like taste. Just a sweet good tea. I really like this one.

Second Steeping: 45 seconds this time. It has stronger notes of honey and apricots.

I wish I wasn’t in stingy-mode for another whole month. I have zero pu-ehr and I desperately want some. You didn’t make it better with this post just now!

This is just an amazing tea. It doesn’t taste like any other pu-erh I’ve tried.
