Green Sheng Pu Erh
This exotic offering comes from the Yunnan region of China and it is a ‘Da Ye’ or big leaf varietal of the Camellia assamica. Put through a complicated process of natural fermentation and aging, this tea has a rich, complex flavor that improves with storage and is a tribute to longevity.

Thank you so much to Kashyap for sending me a sample of this amazing tea!! It’s very tasty.
At first when I brewed it, the smokiness is overwhelming. That was all I could taste. Maybe I burnt the leaves? What temp do you brew a green pu erh at?
Anyhow, now that it’s cooled somewhat the other notes have come out to play. First there was a distinct spiciness that was a little scratchy but pleasant. As the cup airs, the sweet note is showing more and more. Now that it’s lukewarm, it’s smoky, spicy, sweet and minty all at once! Oh sorry I forgot to mention… for the first time I’m actually getting the “menthol” that people talk about when drinking pu’erhs. It’s quite refreshing!!
I think I’m slowly falling in love with quality pu’erhs. The first few experiences I had were with the fishy variety and had me convinced that Pu’erhs were out of my league in ability to appreciate. So I am always surprised when I swoon, even though it’s been so long.
I’m so grateful to have this cup in front of me. There is a wind storm outside and watching the trees sway and hearing the swoosh of wind roaring past is peaceful somehow. It’s chaos out there, but it’s a natural one that’s comforting somehow.
Well, thanks again Kashyap!!

I usually do mine around 190F – 200F depending on the tea

Hmmm I think this was around 200F. I’ll try it at 190F next time. Thanks Amy!

If they seem bitter I usually try them at the lower temp…
