From Tea Setter

This is the first pu-erh tea I ever tasted that caused me to put down my cup and say “Wow!” The taste is surprisingly light compared to other pu-erh teas but so full of many flavor notes with a perfectly subtle sweet backend. A near perfect tea. Grown and processed in the Yunnan Province of China this tea has been aging since 2010.

Yum, this pu’er is fantastic! It is surprisingly on the light side and easy to drink. I’m thinking this pu’er is the opposite of Mandala Tea’s “Special Dark”.
There are sweet amber and vanilla notes. Loads of creamy textures. Hardwood and tobacco notes. Crazy good aftertaste that is really strongly floral apricot.

You’ll miss that aftertaste if you drink this tea too fast – ya need to take your time with it, despite its easy to drink lightness.

I’ve tried Tea Setter’s Sweet Fragrance Pu’er and this so far, and I feel the EAGP is my favorite! Love the aftertaste and the mass creamy and vanilla flavors. I might have to get more of this tea!

I’m not usually one for young, cooked pu-erhs. A lot of the time, they have this fishy, composted taste that I just don’t find appealing. Aged about five years or more, they take on more earthy characteristics. This was…something completely different. A cooked pu-erh without a fishy taste. It was woodsy, minty, and strangely herbaceous – reminding me of echinacea and cinnamon bark for some reason. A smoky underpinning also kept me sipping.

A peculiar and taste-worthy pu-erh.

Although Ethical Agriculture’s Pu-erh is “wild grown,” it bears a very un-wild, refined aroma before you steep it. You couldn’t call it “sweet”–more like quietly dignified. A tea with self-respect. It won’t dump you in a Cabin in the Woods, as might happen with the others. It’s only when you have the drink steaming in your cup that you can go back and say, “Yep, we’ve got sweetness here!” The dusky gold liquid gives Sweet Fragrance a run for its money.

Your first infusion is pretty airy, but be on the lookout for endearing little fruity hints. We’ve got the usual pu-erh smoke setting it all off, but don’t be surprised when some tangerines take you for a mango tango, bumping into guava on the way. It’ll make you forget how dry pu-erhs can be. (Don’t forget to hydrate with these!)

On the next few cups, your now-darkened tea really puts those initial flavors out on the dance floor. If you let it cool a bit… Full review: http://snooteablog.com/2013/09/11/snooty-tea-review-tea-setter-round-1/

This is the best pu-erh I have tried so far. It is very easy to drink, stands up to what feels like unlimited steepings, and has a sweetness that most other pu-erhs seem to lack. Will absolutely be repurchasing!!

This one may be my favorite so far (I know I keep saying that about each one!) Again, amazing color, loved the taste, and I totally smoked my husband and grandson in Monopoly Jr. while drinking it. (Twice!) What could be better than that? Took my little tray with all the fixin’s into the living room to play on the floor and it worked perfect!

This tea is a delight to the senses. I love the aroma and the gentle, yet flavorful taste. I enjoyed 7 steepings from 4g. of tea, and I could have made more. It was perfect for my afternoon tea break!
