Spring blessing
Flavour profile:a spry, vivacious cup with a lightly smoldering note mingles with sweet, exceptionally mild green tea.

Chinese green pu-erh tea grown at 5900 feet in the misty Simao region of Yunnan Province. As with other green teas, the pu-erh tea leaves used to make the mini Green Pu-erh Tuocha are pan-fired/steamed immediately after picking to destroy the enzymes that lead to fermentation. For this reason, green pu-erh has a small amount of caffeine and a milder flavour.

This is the first pu-erh I have prepared at home. I tried a green pu-erh when I was in the Silk Road Tea shop in Victoria and really enjoyed it, so I picked up a few pucks to try…

As per directions, I brought the water almost to a boil, and then steeped the puck for about 3 minutes. I did, however, steep it in more than two cups of water as suggested.

The liquer is amber and there is only a faint scent (of green tea).
Hmm… I shouldn’t have a had dark chocolate right before… the flavour is very mild, especially while it’s still quite hot.
It’s kinda like a genmaicha without the roasted rice… but not sencha….Extemely subtle taste. There’s something that is almost waxy, but that might be leftover lip gloss. lol.
No complaints here, except it could be stronger. I’ll have to try sticking to 2 cups of water next time to see if that makes a difference

This is the first green pu’erh I’ve tried, and I’m not sure if I burned the leaves, or if green pu’erh is just meant to be more astringent than black, but it’s got a bitter, sour tang to it, that’s not there in the black tuocha.

That being said, I still quite like it. I’m still on the first steep, and have laid the leaves out on a paper towel lined plate to save for more steeps later when I have more time, but it’s a comforting cup of tea, perfectly matched to the crispness of the weather.

I really enjoy the convenience of shaped pu’ehr, the tuocha are individually wrapped in tissue paper, inside the tin, so it’s easy to grab one tuocha, toss it in my tea-on-the-run kit, and then I can toss it in my cup anytime I want it, no separate bags/containers needed!

I’m going to look around for other green pu’erhs to try, and would love suggestions!

I have a lot of a green sticky rice puerh – I’ll try to remember to send some your way when I finally have some funds to do some tea swaps :3

Bear With Me

Definitely keep me in mind! :D
