From Teaopia

I’m not sure Teaopia even sells Pu Erh cakes anymore, because their website has no mention of them (thus I have no information on them) and the store I bought it from told me they are one of the oldest stores. You might still find one on a shelf!

In any case they are large frisbee-size cakes wrapped in cloth. This is the black variety, they also carry white and green Pu Erh.

My first Pu Erh!! Wee!
First time I tried this I steeped it for probably 20 seconds, I was so nervous about it being too strong. I LOVED it. The red-copper cup is so pretty, and the feel of it is ridiculously silky smooth. I was expecting it to be bitter and smoky but it has this lovely medium bodied, smooth flavour that is strangely delicious! I could not have been more pleasantly surprised.

I did a second steep this morning, intending on seeing what happened after about seven minutes, but then forgot about it and went and had a shower!! Total steep time ended up being something like half an hour, and I was completely resigned to sadly having to throw it out, but a quick sip told me no, that would be silly! It was still delicious!! The cup had changed to a dark coffee colour, but bitterness was nowhere in sight!

I really didn’t expect to like Pu Erh, but after having this tea, I can safely say I love it.

Teaopia does indeed still sell Pu Erh cakes, however it is called “Tuo Cha Pu’Erh” and it is kept in a glass jar on the counter rather than being in a tin on the wall.

Unfortunately, it tastes like fish food.
