From PureAromaTea

Technically a type of green tea, Pu-erh tea yields an almost red liquor with a distinctive, rich, mellow, sweet flavour and a delicious aroma reminiscent of stables.

To brew put one tsp of tea per person in a pot or Mug Infuser and add fresh, boiled water that has been allowed to cool for a minute. Leave for 10 secs to rinse the tea, then discard the water. Pour on fresh water, brew for 30 secs and serve without milk. The leaves can be re-used several times – perhaps as many as 6 – 8 times. Alternatively you can treat Pu-erh like a strong blend and brew for a much longer time, say 5 mins or even longer. Please be aware that this would be strongly disapproved of in China! This brewing method produces a much stronger brew which some Westerners prefer.

I. Figured since yesterday was Darjeeling heavy, today could be puerh heavy to try and start working through all of the puerh samples that I’ve accumulated from various people and companies. I’ve got a few set aside to try and drink over the week as well.

This is a sip down because I’m sending the rest either to Terri or through the BBB box for for them to try. I brewed this as a 2 min steeps flat out since the package instructions don’t mention gongfu style. I’ve been sipping on multiple steeps of this over the morning and its a pretty good average puerh to drink. It doesn’t have the nuances that some of the mandala puerhs I’ve tried has, but as a result this is a pretty good puerh to treat like a bold black for first thing in the morning. There is a sense of hay from this one but mostly it’s just a bold and relaxing cup for this cooler almost fall morning. Another solid offering from pure aroma – I haven’t been disappointed with any of their teas really.

Yixing teapot – 370ml – (Enough for two)
Tea weight – 10g
Water temp – 95°C
Steeping times – 15 second increments

This tea has a dry, wooden, leather, smoky and tobacco. I took a picture – https://twitter.com/kittylovestea/status/392335220914925568/photo/1

I can taste clay, soil, damp wood, smoke and dry musk. Medium strength overall and consistent throughout but it does weaken quickly. A slight astringency and sourness comes through on the third steep but it’s still rather smooth.

A nice Pu Erh suited for everyday drinking and good for the price but this one is not on my re-purchase list.

One more tea from Sil, sent to me awhile back in one of our many trades.
For once I followed the steeping instructions on the package, which are:
1tsp + 8oz X 2min
On a normal day with a shu, I’d either go stronger & longer, or pull out my yixing & keep it short. Oh well…
The results was a gentle & smooth, kind of creamy cup. A little earthy, woody, & sweet. Nothing fancy, but a pleasant cup for the early evening.
