I think this is the first raw pu-erh I’ve ever had. It smells earthy, but lighter. The flavour is a bit on the sweet side, and rather mild. Interesting, will have to try again in a few months.

Oooooo! I don’t think I have ever had raw puerh either! Do you know what makes it raw verses not? I’m not sure what the difference is.

Dustin

Awesome link, thanks!

Stephanie

I love raw puerh so much!

Lariel

I liked it, but I’m so used to having ripened pu-erh.

Stephanie

Yeah, they are totally different animals

boychik

i like them both. i didnt like sheng(raw) until i tried some very good ones;)

Sarsonator

Sheng FTW!!!!

For realz tho. I’m trying really hard to like shus. I even ordered some from YS.

Lariel

I have another package of this one I’m ageing. How long should I wait?

boychik

they need airflow to age. they usually age them in clay pots, or carton boxes.

Received a sample in the spring sampler that i won, much like stephanie :) this…this was not what i expected. In contrast to Stephanie, i found this to be much lighter than i expected rather than bold…but i agree on the sweetness. This was a lovely tea to wake up with – lasting for several steepings with the sweet flavour coming out more as i went along. Since this was produced this year, it would be interesting to see how this one ages as i can imagine it would be fairly lovely…at least that’s what my limited experience with puerh says haha. I’m certainly no expert!

I got a sample of this tea from Teavivre as a prize in my sample packet during the Spring Tea Review Giveaway! Thanks TeaVivre!

Oddly enough, this one does not appear to be on TeaVivre’s website for sale yet! Sneak Preview? Count me in! :)

This is a sweet, bold, assertive young sheng. Some apricot notes. I believe this is the first puerh I have drunk that was produced this year! VERY young sheng! Also very strong cha qi. I am super energized :)

Love the lingering aftertaste. This one’s a keeper!
