I pulled this out of LiquidProusts’ tea sample box, whacked the whole sample (13g) in my 100ml teapot and began with a 10 second steep. The first steep already has me feeling all tingly and nice inside. I don’t think I’ve had a tea that has had this effect on me before (I’ve read about body feel, but don’t think I’ve experienced it).
As far as taste, damp wood, mild camphor (mainly in the aroma, but mildly in the taste also), and very slightly astringent (not the horrible liver stripping mouth inverting astringency of some of the other samples I’ve tried so far!). I would say this is probably my favourite pu-erh so far (out of not many), one that I’m all like ooooooooh more please!

Still not wuyi yancha levels of delicious awesomeness, but you never know maybe I’ll catch the pu bug yet.

13g in a 100mL teapot?! That’s some pretty hardcore brewing!

benthejack

Haha I suppose so! It said 13g on the packet, about a third of the teapot of loose tea. I usually third fill for oolong (not that much of rolled oolong though), but am very new to pu-erh. How much would you usually use?

Matu

That’s about double what I usually use :) I put 7-8g in my 120mL gaiwan normally. Some puerh still work if you go super heavy on the leaf, but others will become a bitter mess ;)

benthejack

Oooh I see! I yes I lucked out with this one, it’s probably why I hasn’t liked many of the puerhs I’ve tried :p I need to get a scale I think!

Matu

Definitely helps! They’re quite cheap on Amazon :) Just search for a jeweler’s scale or something.

Scales are something I can’t do without now.

This tea is very similar to the Ancient Tree Mini Brick that J-Tea provides. Though, rather than peat moss and bacon, this is more like punky wood that gets tingley the longer it steeps.
