Update the guys below are correct the price I mistakenly thought was for 7 oz is actually for 20 g. Big difference. This is still a very tasty puerh.

Still drinking this one again today with yesterday’s leaf. I only went about 30s with my steep today and it is lighter and more orange in color. Still nicely leather. I looked it up today and there is a sale on it right now $5.12/7 oz with free shipping. That’s crazy cheap and had I not looked and found out this was an inexpensive puerh, I would not have known. If you are interested here is the link (hope I’m allowed to do this): http://www.ebay.com/itm/2011-Yunnan-Menghai-Dayi-Golden-Branch-Jade-Leaf-Loose-Ripe-Pu-er-Tea-/321166038132

In other news – our new porch is in the works. In preparation I had 3 oak and 2 persimmon trees cut in my front yard to make way. While the chainsaw masters were in my yard, we had 27 ash trees removed + 4 or 5 other trees. The ash trees had beetle infestations and were in various stages of being killed by the bugs. It is a big problem around here.

Not to worry, I still have lots of trees including about 80 persimmon and a couple humongous oak trees. Most of the ones we had cut were 50-70 ft tall. My yard looks like a war zone. I have a couple friends who are going to cut them up for firewood. It may take all summer. sigh.

You are so lucky to have Persimmon trees. I love persimmons.

Cameron B.

You clearly have a huge yard! Ha ha.

K S

I have two acres. On Google maps I can’t even see my house for the trees. Next time they update the satellite image things should look a lot different.

mrmopar

Persimmons,yum but only after the frost!

mrmopar

You have to use the dropdown menu in the listing. I think that’s for the sample size.

I just checked that link, and the $5.12 is for a 20 gram sample (you have to select the drop down ‘Net Weight’ menu to see that). the 7.05 oz is $24.60. Still, not too bad a price. : )

Stephanie

I’ve never tried a persimmon but I would like to :) I’m jealous of all your trees!

K S

Yeah, as you can tell I don’t ebay. Sorry for the bad info and thanks for catching it guys.

Stephanie my wife hates persimmon pudding (a local favorite) but I used to have a dog that could eat them raw faster than we could pick them up off the ground.

K S

Hey wait, how can you be in southern Indiana and never tried a persimmon? I thought it was required for residency. :)

Wow 3 years in the cupboard and I haven’t reviewed this one yet. I must be slipping. Since this is a loose or ‘maocha’ shou I am going with a little less leaf and short steeps as I think it will yield quicker. Ten grams in the yixing with a 5 second rinse to it. It brew pretty light in color and an almost mix of apricots or white peaches. It has a slight buttery cocoa like finish to it. Hints of apple also. Apple! I think that is really the closest fruit to it. This one is a complex one. It is also one of the few loose puerhs I have tried. maybe I should explore more. It is really smooth with no “off’” notes and very nice drinking. Nice easy drinking. Nice complexity.

What do you recommend in general in terms of leaf to water ratio for pu-erh? I am just now getting brave enough to try some of the ones I have had in my tea cabinet for a while.

mrmopar

Morgana if I use my yixing it holds about 10 oz of water I usually go 12 to 15 grams by weight of compressed tea. If I use loose leaf I usually try 8 to 10 grams. If I go totally gongfu with the gaiwan usually the same measurements but the water ratio is probably about 4 oz when I do this. This is just a personal preference for me. I would just experiment as my parameters may be too strong or weak based on your tastes. I tried varying ways before i hit the “sweet” spot.

__Morgana__

Thanks—sounds like a general rule of thumb might be 1 oz water to 1 gram tea to start and adjust from there.

Tea Pet

Where did you purchase your yixing? Also, this tea sounds AMAZING.

mrmopar

The yixing I used last night was from teh Tea Merchant. It was the mosaic pot they had on sale a while back.

Tea Pet

I remember that pot! So unique!

Terri HarpLady

I like that pot, it reminds me of Alladin’s Lamp :)
My yixings are all tiny 4-5oz size, although there are a few I’ve been drooling over that are 10oz.

JC

That sounds like a nice ripe to try!
