I have had this tea a few times now and each time it has been consistently mild and smooth. Very light for a ripe Pu Erh indeed. It has elements of soil, musk, sweet wood and clay.

I fear that this is perhaps too mild for my personal taste, even after upping the dosage of Pu Erh I use in my Yixing doesn’t work. :(

If anyone likes soft Pu Erh then let me know and I will send some your way.

Anna

Sounds like something for the EuroBox. =)

I might just do that with the hope someone else likes it. I really have tried my best to enjoy it but I’ve always been a strong tea kinda gal. The brick was 250g so I have plenty to share around.

Lewis & Clark TTB #9

The dry tea was very tightly compressed, so I let it rest for 5 minutes after a 30 s rinse. It didn’t really separate until the second steep.

The tea is rich and smooth, with flavors of wood, leather, and cherry. There is a little bite of astringency at the finish, which doesn’t detract from the taste. I want to say it has lots of cha qi, but it may just be that a lazy Sunday morning is emphasizing that aspect of the tea. I lost the cherry in the second steep, but the cedar notes came to the fore, with what I think is a touch of smoke. Overall, an enjoyable tea; I nearly purchased some today, but need to think about it for awhile.

Oh no! Tea organization emergency! I keep a google e-mail draft full of the teas I haven’t written tasting notes for with the usernames from trades for those teas and the list of teas that are almost sipped down. This morning the list is completely messed up, somehow a bunch of html was added to the list when there wasn’t any before mostly a lot of . Even the subject changed. I have no idea how to get it back! Other than Steepster, it was basically the other part of my tea brain.

Thank you KittyLovesTea for this one a while back! I have so many samples I haven’t got around to trying. I would say the teaboxes I participate in are bad for my tea collection, but then I remember some of my tea collection goes into the teaboxes, so it balances itself out. :D

Steep #1 // rinse // just boiled // 1 1/2 min
A good size chunk of this goes into my infuser, after a rinse the mug is a deep red as only these lovely pu-erhs can make happen. The flavor is crisp and refined somehow. It brings to mind darkened studies filled with ancientbooks… whatever studies are, but this is that tea. There is a pine or cedar flavor here (that isn’t like the oversteeped leaves flavor). I don’t drink wine, but it kind of reminds me of wine somehow.

Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 min
This cup seems to mellow out in flavor, but it’s still a strong pu-erh, deepest red color. Not as much crisp/pine/cedar… more sweet! I’ve noticed with this pu-erh that my appetite is ridiculous, even drinking this while eating things like muffins and spaghetti. I’m hungry faster… not necessarily a good thing for me. I know that pu-erh is supposed to boost metabolism or something but I’ve never noticed it until now.

Steep #3 // just boiled // 3 min
Still going as strong as the second steep, or should I say as sweet. No noticeable difference in flavor. Delicious but it doesn’t have that little something extra I love about pu-erh… and I don’t mean the pondiness. But that is missing too.

Cheri

Oh no! You could try keeping it as a document in Google Drive from now on. You can edit and get back to earlier versions in that.

Tea Sipper

I’ll have to check that out, thanks!

Queued post, written April 23rd 2014

I enjoy a cup of puerh now and then, but it’s not something I really drink very large amounts of. It’s not really the same way as with green tea and similar where I have to be in the mood for it. I think it has to do with the effort involved. Drinking pu-erh tea is a commitment to drink the same tea for a long time, and I just don’t always have that sort of attention span. I get bored. I want something else.

Even so, I took some of this out of the EU TTB round 1, and have been waiting for a good time to have it. Last time Husband had a puerh he didn’t much like it, so I’m not going to bother giving him this one when we have so many others that he enjoys much more. Therefore, drinking it on a Wednesday is the way forward.

For once in my life I actually did a quick rinse. This seems to be the primary advice given to people who like puerh but find it a little harsh. I’ve never had that problem myself, so I’ve never bothered. I did today though for reasons that… Well, for no particular reason actually. Call it an experiment.

It smells like mushrooms and cinnamon. I’m a bit puzzled by the latter. I wasn’t expecting that. I wonder if it might be a result of residue on my strainer… Not impossible, but it has brewed a number of non-cinnamon-y things since it’s been in contact with cinnamon, and none of those had cinnamon notes in them that should or shouldn’t be there, so I’m leaning towards the belief that this tea actually smells like cinnamon.

The flavour is a bit thin, but again there’s a lot of cinnamon notes in it. I’m not getting too much in the way of mushrooms until the aftertaste, and I can’t immediately spot any stronger earthy flavours. There’s no feeling of farm animals to this. I say farm animals because the first time I had a puerh it invoked strong memories of my great-grandparents’ and the farm they had when I was little. It shaped the whole puerh experience for me. I want this note in my cup. I want this association.

I don’t know where those farm animals have gone here. I wonder if the rinse step stole them from me. If that is the case this will be the first and last time I ever bother with a rinse. I want my farm animals back.

That said though, it is an enjoyable cup. Remarkably cinnamon-y and quite sweet with an aftertaste of mushrooms and broth.

Jillian

Nooo, not the farm animals! ;)

Angrboda

I know! It was quite disappointing. I still have some left, though, so I can test if it was the rinse that did it or if they just aren’t there.
