Woah! I can’t believe it: it’s a pu-erh and I like it! I gave it a quick 10 second rinse because I heard that was a thing to do, and then I steeped it for 2 minutes.

Yes, it tastes dark and earthy but it’s good. It’s slightly smokey and sweet which add a bit of depth to the flavour. Excellent! I don’t really feel qualified to judge this because I couldn’t tell you if this was a good puerh or not, or if it’s raw or whatever the other one is, but now I can venture out and explore more puerh.

I’ve got 2 samples coming from Teavivre so this is excellent news.
I’m no longer afraid of Puerh!

Good to know! I have 48 Harney teas on shelf right now but I have never tried their shu puerh. I do have a raw Ziyun Mao Cha that they haven’t carried in years but it is aging nicely, and I had their green tea cake, which is a puerh type tea but could not be labeled puerh because it wasn’t grown in Yunnan. I need to try this one!

Cavocorax

Are all puerh’s from Yunnan? Because I do like black Yunnan teas!

…going to have to put together a poo package for you cavo…or when you come here we can get together once a week for puerh together! (poo in the park with the little one?) haha

Cavocorax

Haha. Poo in the park sounds fun. :P

This is a great tea to introduce someone to pu-erh. It is pretty tame compared to many other pu-erhs. It is slightly earthy and slightly smokey and never bitter.

I have begun to combine this tea w Russian Caravan, by Peets Tea, to enhance its smoky taste and aroma. Sometimes, I brew this tea w Numi’s Aged Earl Grey, instead. For some reason, I can’t drag my steep time, below. I combine 2 rounded t pu-erh w 1 rounded t Russian Caravan in 2 cups water & steep at 212, for 5 minutes. Or, I combine 2 rounded t pu-erh w 1 tea bag of the Numi, using same temp and steep time. This amount of Bergamot is about right.

This tea has a very interesting character. It isn’t sour or bitter at all but does taste very earthy and somewhat smoky. I don’t usually prefer Pu-erh teas but this one intrigues me. I added cream and sugar and the resulting flavor combination was actually quite nice.
