From Happy Lucky's Tea House

Dark smooth Pu erh with the scent of a barrel room at a winery. Old growth forrest. 3 minute steep is satisfying
with a little smokiness.

I added this tea to steepster after a jaunt to Happy Lucky’s in downtown Fort Collins. The tea masters are good fellows. They brewed up a hefty clay pot of this Velour ( great name) Pu erh and we talked and I sipped a 3 minute steeped brew with hot milk. So nice to have a tea bar with stools so high I can’t touch the floor and I’m tall! I got to put my big nose WAY into the big tin of Pu erh to get the bang of scent dry…and I could pinpoint where I smelled that scent before…in the barrel room at the winery! Old damp and cool barrels with dust in the corner and humid. The soury good smell. The dirt smell. Wow. The smell is something soily. The 3 minute steep with hot milk created a mocha cup that was not too bold, a bit smoky and not too weak either. Liked it. If this had been wine I would have been drunk! It was a big pot!

This is the first Pu-erh tea I have purchased, but not the first I have tasted. Overall, I really enjoy this tea. The smell is a little odd at first. Many of my friends wont try this tea simply because the smell. It is almost like a creek full of fish in the spring….I could see how this smell might not be everyones “cup of tea”…..like we haven’t heard that one before.

This brews a very dark and full cup. The color is actually more like a black red / cherry red. The taste is earthy, smooth, and a little smokey.

I would highly recommend using a Gaiwan to brew this and not a large tea pot. This tea will produce a variety of flavors throughout the brewing process and you will miss a lot of that if you only brew one large pot. For example, the first brew is can be a bit crisp and refreshing almost. Then after you continue to brew I noticed a more smooth and full flavor, even smokey. After the 5th or 6th I really started to notice some of the wood-like flavors. My throat even reacted a little different throughout the process.

I brewed this anywhere from 30 sec to 3:00 min. Each will give you a different flavor and enjoyment!

This one of my favorite Pu erh teas, I brew it very strong for three minutes, and the second brew is as good as the first. It is earthy and tangy and a bit nutty at the end. The taste is not for everyone, but as a former coffee drinker, this is about as a thick of a cup of tea as you can get.
