From Pure Puer Tea

Factory: Wenlong
Harvest Year: 2007
Type: Ripe/Shu
Harvest Area: Feng Qing

The name “third grade” refers to the size of the leaf used to make this quality cake. This cake tastes smooth and mild. It contains the leaves of old trees. The cake will develop a dates flavor as it ages. It is an excellent value in puer tea.

Amount to use: 1 tablespoon of tea to 3/4 of a cup of water (5g tea to 178ml water, or 0.18oz tea to 6oz water.) This tea can be brewed about 10 times.

How to brew: Gently loosen tea from the edge of the tea cake using your hand, a tea pick or a butter knife. Place the tea in the teapot. Add *205 degree F (96 C) water to the teapot to awaken and clean the tea. Immediately pour out and discard the water. Rinse the tea and discard the water a second time. Finally, add water and brew 8-25 seconds. Serve. Be careful not to over brew this tea.

*This temperature may be approximated by:
1) Heating water until medium bubbles form or
2) Removing a pot of boiling water from its heat source and letting it sit for about 2 minutes.

Tea of the afternoon here… I haven’t been drinking much puerh lately but this seemed like a good thing to have after lunch. I’ve been poking around in my apartment feeling unproductive and trying to decide if I want to go the the gym (it’s been forever).

This cake is tasting strange to me today, it seems more like a regular tea than a shu and I got some tannic aftertaste after steeping it for around 15 seconds. Odd.

The second steep is darker and still has a bit more shu aftertaste, but it still seems a bit bitter. I wonder if this is a cake that does not age well, or if there is something about storing it in my apartment that turned it bad? what does anyone think?
