From Peony Tea S.

Production area: Xishuangbanna, Yunnan
Harvest time: 2005

Type:

Dark tea- ‘Ripe pu-er’/ Shu pu (熟普)

Summary:

From the moment it enters your mouth, this ’05 Pu-er feels smooth and silky. It slithers down your throat and a recurring sweetness wells up, enticing you to pour another cup. If you started drinking Pu-er just for weight loss, you don’t know what you are missing. Our ’05 Pu-er is delicious to the last drop and stands up to many steeps.

Taste:

Smooth, sweet and lingering recurring sweetness

Liquor:

Dark maroon with shiny, lustrous surface

Personality:

There’s a matured charm about our ’05 Pu-er and it’s not just because of age. She has an elegant, sophisticated air that is paradoxically subtle and strong at the same time.

I have got to get myself a good inexpensive cake of shu for at work. And home. When I get tired of the same black teas, I tend to refresh my palate with a cuppa shu. However my options are extremely limited to mostly samples and oftentimes things I have not yet reviewed so I don’t want to take them to work where I don’t focus on them. Then I forget what I thought and how to steep and don’t know what to order. I still have three samples from Mandala to try, but I need to have time at home with hubby so we can both get our impressions and decide which (if any) is worth stocking.

So.

I went through the stash Monday night and brought in some samples that I had dupes of so I have options at work. While doing that, I unearthed the remains of this sample which was provided to me for free several years ago. I didn’t really see much from this company but the three samples I had were good quality but a bit pricey, if I remember correctly.

This makes a really nice cup that I don’t have to focus on but can still enjoy. No bitterness, not too dark or roasty which I don’t like. There is a full flavour which reminds me of wood and rain and clean barns. It’s not fishy or dirty, but is earthy and warm. Delish!

Cheri

I drink new teas at work all the time and feel badly about it that I can’t write good reviews a lot of the time. Sometimes I remember to jot notes down, but a lot of the time I forget.

Uniquity

It bugs me when I can’t remember what I thought of a tea and that happens a lot if I have a new one at work. Then I need to try it again to get real impressions. Thus, favourites or tried and true ones tend to end up at work for me.
