From Imperial Organic

Introducing our new line of teas – Imperial Organic. What does imperial mean? It means royal quality of organic degree in teas available today. Pu-Erh is a tea that undergoes a period of aging. It is the most complex of Chinese teas. Traditionally all teas were fermented in the manner due to long travel times when they were being exported. In ancient times of China, round sized cakes of these teas were used as currency because of its value. When brewed, Pu-Erh tea has a dark reddish color with a strong, full and earthy taste. Some scientific studies have suggested the possibilty that Pu-Erh tea reduces cholesterol and blood fats. Certified organic and kosher, every batch is carefully hand inspected to ensure goodness and purity. Taste the Uncle Lee’s difference!

Some where out there a pu-erh snob has fainted. That’s right, I am drinking pu-erh out of a teabag. $6 for a box and you can get it even cheaper on Uncle Lee’s website.

I bought this just to check it out for experimentation. I wasn’t expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. It has the nice brownish-red color of a pu-erh. For a teabag this has some tremendous flavor. It’s very woodsy, and roasty/toasty with a hint of smoke puffs. The aroma reminds me of the redwood forest groves in Northern California. This is reminiscent of the wild tree pu-erhs I like a lot. It’s actually quite pleasant and it’s organic.

Don’t tell the tea snobs but I actually think this is more flavorful and interesting than both the tuo chas I had earlier today. It will just be our little secret… ;-)

_ They actually sell pu’er in tea bags all over China. I had some the first time flying from Beijing to Kunming. It’s was pretty good- especially since my stomach hates flying.

I’ve actually seen bottled pu’er on the store shelf recently. Mind you, it had tons of sugar and was ultraflavored, but baby steps..


Numi has some as well – one of these days I need to try it…


My introduction to puerh was in bag form. I was Yamamotoyama. Tasted kind of like a wuyi oolong but was a great beginning. I have had the Numi – not bad, and one other that apparently didn’t leave an impression because I don’t remember what it was.

Foojoy has a really good bagged Pu-Erh that I think I found for 4.00 for 100 bags….simply phenomenal


Foojoy – that was it!


I’ll have to see if I can locate that Foojoy in Chinatown! It’s so good to find these little bargains that are everyday staples…


As long as you like the teabags, it is fine. I thought it was interesting that you like it better than the Tuo Chas. I’venever had bagged Tuo Cha, but I had a bagged White tea from Enjoying tea—I got it as a Christmas gift a few yrs ago. It too, was surprisingly good! It tasted like a Pai Mu Tan. I also believe the smaller leaf in the teabag intensified the flavor somewhat.

It is interesting that the aroma reminds you of the redwood forest groves! :))


the tea bag just had flavors that I liked better. I like my pu-erh to taste and smell like trees evidently.


Hhhmmm…….and yet you don’t like overly smokey teas?! So you like your “trees” pre burn then?


I like trees but not much smoke – I feel like I’m drinking out of an ashtray


hehehe…I like mildy smokey teas, but it’s been years since I’ve had a Lapsang Souchong, although I’d like to sample it again with short steeps.

A co-worker, who is working on waning herself off of coffee, purchased this tea from a local heath store; and seeing as how I’m the recognized local tea connoisseur, she had peaked my curiosity.

The aroma given from steeping is extremely promising, with an almost rich woodsy atmosphere, deeply green, very dark, and a slight smokey tinge. The color is a very satisfying deep and handsome red of pu-erh.

The flavor is amazingly rich, with a smokey earthy taste that empowers it’s roasted base; this is the flavor of a fresh forest.

There are times when a teabag tea surprises me. This teabag is one of them.

I have this too and was amazed at how good it was.

Rich flavor, marine notes are just barely detectable, it’s cleaner in that regard for those who have an aversion to puerh for that reason. I think Kasumi no Chagin hit it with the ‘peat’ descriptor. ‘Forest dirt’ hits more on the second steep. I know, this sounds so appealing, doesn’t it? But it’s a pretty good puerh for everyday drinking.

I’m really not very familiar with pu-erh’s yet (this is my first one!) but will rate this tea anyway. I realize that most people don’t drink pu-erh made from a tea-bag but this was enjoyable enough. :)

It was smooth…and kind of earthy. I probably won’t buy it again because I want to try a fancy one next time. But I’m definitely going to finish the rest of what I have.

Sample sipdown!

I’m still new to the world of pu’erh teas, but this one didn’t really excite me much. It tasted kind of fishy and even a tad sweaty, and compared to the other pu’erh I’ve tried (Verdant’s amazing Tian Di Ren Bulang Sheng from 2006), this one seemed kind of flat. It was in a teabag so I didn’t rinse it – maybe that’s why.

This was a swap from Jude. At least I got to broaden my horizons a bit!


This tea is also a shu which is a lot different from a sheng. :)


Ah, see the teabag that I got in the swap didn’t say anything about that. I’ve never had a shu before this, but considering that I prefer green tea over black and have seen comments from others that shengs compare to shus the way green tea compares to black, I think sheng might be more up my alley.
