From Mandala Tea

An enjoyable everyday drinking ripe tea. Perfect as an accompaniment with most any meal and quite nice to sip when entertaining friends while consuming alcoholic spirits. Nice with good bourbon or top-shelf anejo tequila!

One ounce option available on above drop-down menu.

Update: 2/25/11. This cake has really opened up in the 4 years since we acquired it. I just began a round of gong fu cha with it using aroma cup. This tea stands very well on its own merits, hints of leather, chocolate, burnt caramel (a positive attribute in this case)… flavor is deep, rich and satisfying. On infusion 4 and I am interested to go further!

I received this sample from gracebtlb a while back and i’ve eben waiting to have some time to sit and enjoy it. I don’t have a lot of practice with gongfu style brewing but i welcome an opportunity to try and improve my skills. I’m finding pu-erh is the way that i can do this. I lined up a couple of my cups from China so that I could pour a few infusions to try them against one another a little better.

First off, the colour of this one brewed is a beautiful reddish hue. Sitting in the white porcelain of the cups made me smile just looking at it. I wasn’t very good at detecting the subtle nuances of each steep but over all, this is a VERY nice puerh (keep in mind i have very limited experience with puerh). There is a deep, rich flavour to this blend and while i don’t get the chocolate that mandala speaks of, i do get hints of the burnt caramel and what i would describe more as an earthier sort of taste.

Here’s hoping my vocabulary improves along with my skills at gongfu :) Thank you grace for sharing your tea with me! I really liked this one, and i’m looking forward to trying the other bit of it that i saved in case i screwed things up lol

Yay! I am so happy you liked it. If you liked this one, you’re going to love the Yong De I sent and the Special Dark that I am going to send. The chocolate is kind of Hershey Park in both of them :)

Sil

Neat! You know me, always up for trying new things and I for sure need more puerh experience :)

Garret

I’ve been into pu’er for years and years and I always need more pu’er experience, Sil!!!! Grace, thanks for sharing. I just did a 2 hour session with the Noble Mark cake that I had pressed last year and thought of you so it’s funny to have seen your reply just now!

Sil

Grace sent me a few of your teas for me to try before i get around to placing my own order. She was awesome enough to share some of her favourites with me. Shipping to canada is a pain, so i wanted to try a few before getting my tea mule to bring them across the border for me :)

Garret

Shipping to Canada is something we do alot of. If you decide to make an order, just be in touch with me at [email protected] and we can take care of your order together, figure out the freight price, pay via Paypal and package and ship to your groovy self. Not a problem. Matter of fact, I appreciate the opportunity to be of service.

Sil

Garret – i appreciate that! I do have a friend in the us who crosses the border every week so she often helps that way :)

Mostly i just need to get around to trying the last few samples that Grace sent me so that i can plan my july birthday order! :)

Cavocorax

(Woo! July birthday orders!)

Sil
