From Samovar

Origin: Yunnan, China

Flavor Profile: Very balanced, smooth, rich and dark, with a slightly sweet, wildflower honey finish. Deep, strong forward notes of earth and moss with a lingering raisin sugar sweetness.

Tea Story: Pure Pu-erh Ecstasy
This tender, young-leaf pu-erh is so good that it was traditionally used as part of the wedding dowry of the young women who picked it.

Unlike many of our other pu-erhs from Jingmai Mountain, this is vintage loose leaf.

You just can not go wrong when steeping up a bit of this tea in a yixing clay pot. Done right, it is delicious.

Like any good, ripe pu-erh, you won’t need to worry about over-steeping this tea: you can steep the leaves for an hour without yielding any sign of bitterness. Very forgiving.

Pamela, one of our regulars, swears that this tea has propelled her erotica writing to a new level. We swear it is just delicious.

Samovarian Poetry: Rapture & reverie. Consummately captivating, deep dark, sweet & smooth.

Food Pairing: Pair Maiden’s Ecstasy with anything rich, oily, or buttery. Just as perfect with Dim Sum as it is with quiche. An ideal after meal tea: the deep flavor compliments dark or milk chocolate, ice-cream (it’s true!), a stroopwaffle, any flavor of cheese cake. You will feel its digestive powers making your happy belly all the more happy.

Second steeping. Let it go 10+ minutes. A bit of sweetness came out. Very nice.

I love this Pu-erh, delicious. I like to set my leaves into a teapot and pour the water over them so they can fully expand inside without any infusers. (I do use a strainer of course while pouring) I love this method!

Great for when feeling like crap in bed.

An excellent tea I could drink every day. It’s the first Pu-erh that I have enjoyed and I think it’s turned me on for more.
