From JAS eTea

The second production of 2008 802. This is an average blend of 4th grade material from 2006 and 2007. It has already mellowed a bit.

This tea has a lovely light aroma. It is very uplifting as well. The flavor is a bit thin although I may have had a light hand with the leaves. I am enjoying it. I have to retract my statement about the light hand. As I peered in the Gaiwan it appeared to be just right. So I am going to give this one a deeper steep. The tea has what I would call spirit. The longer steep has improved the quality. It is still mellow. This tea truly has the “feel good” quality. Very drinkable. A good everyday tea. Maybe in a few years it may evolve into a special occasion tea.

The leaves that I’m using are from the Jas-eTea Menghai raw sampler. This is my first Menghai Pu-erh and only my third raw pu-erh. This is an earthy tea with a kiss of bitterness on the tip of your tongue. Pu-erh really is a special variety of tea. It’s rare for tea to drop me into such a state of relaxation as pu-erh. It’s a tea that I could drink for quite some time — provided there is ample boiling water and no one rushing me.
