We are always on the lookout for superb ripen Pu-erh teas, and this one is our lucky find during our 2010 Fall tea trip.

With its premium material, a skillful production process, and four years storage, this tea presents itself as a great drinking now tea. You would appreciate its beautiful wine color broth without any ‘off’ taste. Talking about a premium coffee you would enjoy, this one got the same caliber.

This was a free sample sent some time back with a previous order. A nice, smooth shou with a distinct malty sweetness & balanced the earthy flavors. Malt is new to me in a ripe pu-erh & I liked it. No fermentation flavors here at all. The first five or so steeps brewed dark, with good mouth feel & some coating oils. After that, it started to fall off & the flavors gradually tapered to a mellow earthiness by steep 8-10. I would have liked it to hold out a little longer. It seems the ‘06 is gone & puerhshop.com is now carrying the ’07. Maybe I’ll add a beeng/sample to my next order.

Another single brew sized sample which makes it harder to review with a single try in a gaiwan. This one has a smooth mellow and certain richness that can one can expect to find in a good gongting ripe puerh. Not a casual brewing ripe puerh as this is one of the ones that it is possible to overbrew.
