The great tradition continues with ready to drink ripen tea leaves that are 5 years old.

We decided to use old vintage ripen tea leaves fermented in 2006 for our MGH 1104 brick. Now you would enjoy a smooth drink without ‘Duiwei’ (People describe it as pond, fishy, a strange smell of new ripe Pu-erh that many not used to).

Having this one again. Has been a while since the last time, but is still delivering a nice cup.The vanilla is still there in the background maybe muted a bit in the age process.

Thank you, boychik, for the sample of this! :)

The aroma is very much reminiscent of walnut. The taste is quite mellow, smooth, a hint of cream and vanilla. It is a perfectly fine Shu. Not very contemplative, however, perfect if you are looking for a shou to accompany a meal, as the notes are not very powerful. I will definitely have to pick up a brick of this.

+1 for everyday. This one can do the trick.

boychik

I picked it based on your recommendation and others reviews as well, mrmopar

Thanks I am flattered that you trusted me that much! I am the only one in the house that drinks the “Barn” smelling tea! I do like how this one brews up always dark and an almost bittersweet chocolate note to it.

Before brewing I split the mini brick in half down the middle to decrease the thickness to avoid having problems of it not wanting to open up enough to brew properly. Overall a decent ripe puerh that holds true to the vendor claims but without a doubt the 2011 MGH 1108 brick is a bit better so unless you really want the mini brick style I would say go with that one instead.

This was a little sample from Madametj. Thanks, dearest!

I’m enjoying this one quite a bit. No funkiness, but it does taste a bit earthy, which is nice. This is a great winter sipper. It’s snowing and I’m chillin’ in the nook. Word up.

Backlog, last week

I’m not sure if I did something wrong, but this tea was just OK. No special notes to speak of, just ripe puerh. :P

I could’ve sworn that I’ve logged this before, but it’s not popping up, so maybe I didn’t…
Anyway, I’m going to start out by saying that I did this totally wrong, having been away from puerh for some time (I did longer steeps than usual…)….
Rinse
15sec steep: Raisins and vanilla, and of course, plum pudding (I always say that, but that’s what I always get :) ). Oh man, is this good. Slight mineral tang right before that smooth, steamed pudding finish. Hints of walnut, I’m tasting, too.

Feeling kind of stressed out today, just because life is like that sometimes. But, sitting here by a window, with sunlight hitting the snow outside, sipping this absolutely wonderful tea, my spirits are being lifted immensely. :)

30sec steep: As usual, I am in love with the colour of the second cup. Dark and gorgeous, this cup is everything the first cup was and more. The aroma is pure bliss, with a taste that’s more nutty than the first, along with an addition of a browned butter note, accented by caramel. The finish is like walnuts, complete with the hint of bitterness from their skins.

I am so glad I decided to have this tea; I feel like my soul needed it. :)

30sec steep (again… like I said, I did this all wrong…): Caramel-y and sweet, with the same intense colour as the second steep. Nutty and so very delicious.

I’m going to keep drinking this, but I’ve run out of time to log my steeps. Thank you, boychik (who sent me this sample. I’ve been thinking about you as I’ve been sipping), for my extended tea meditation. It was perfect. :)

Fjellrev

Hope the stress will subside (without having to drink tea, of course)!

Red Fennekin

Eh, it’s not wrong if it produced a lovely tea that you enjoyed :-) I’m glad the tea made you feel better (though like Fjellrev said, hopefully the general stress goes away too)!

DeliriumsFrogs

Aw, thanks, you two. :D tea really does always help.

OMGsrsly

I agree, steep it how you like it. :D I’ve been steeping till the colour looks like something I want to drink, which means wildly different and random times. Works for me!

DeliriumsFrogs

OMGsrsly, it’s funny you mention that, because while I was steeping, I’d peek and think, “that’s the colour I want, right there!”…but then worry that it wasn’t following the right ‘directions’. haha I’m such a dork sometimes…
