From Various

This flavorful and ripe Chinese tea was harvested from semi wild Arbor trees in Menghai in 1991, and dry stored in China’s state owned tea factory in Kunming under specialized care.
Ripened to perfection, this bio-dynamically farmed pure organic tea was picked from ancient wild arbor tea trees using traditional methods to ensure a full bodied, complex taste with absolutely no bitterness.

Full flavored and aged to perfection, this over twenty year vintage tea really is something special. Hand plucked before pan firing and sun drying, our Rare Wild Arbor Ripe Pu- Erh has undergone highly specialized wo- dui aging in order to provide a perfectly clear tea soup in a deep burgundy color with a rich, high aroma and fragrant, robust strength.

This 1990’s Rare Wild Arbor Ripe Pu- Erh can be brewed up to seven times, with the brewing time extended each time after the first usage. Simply put 3- 5 grams of tea into a warm teapot, and add freshly boiled water at a ratio of around 1:50 parts. Brew for just a few seconds, before emptying out the water and steeping again for a further ten seconds before pouring.

Tea Varietal: Semi-wild Arbor Tea Trees
Farming Methods: Biodynamic Organic Farming
Production Methods: Plucking—pan firing-rolling-drying under the sun-packing-wo-dui-aging.
Vintage: 20 years

It’s 20 year old tea. That’s cool. My tasting notes on this aren’t very concise because I’m also smoking hookah and eating pizza rolls, but lemme tell you, it’s some dark tea. Full bodied, full flavored, earth, and leather. I’ve never really been much of a puerh drinker but I seriously appreciate that there’s no fishyness in this one like I get with some shu puerhs. It’s just very leathery with a sweetness on the finish. It’s probably not the best 20 year old puerh out there but, it’s ok.

EDIT: No, you know what? It’s better than ok. It’s fruity after five steepings. I’m bumping up my rating.

Almost bought this one on my last spectacularly large sample order from Tealux. Will definitely put it on the list.
Blame it on the hookah, but now I’m wondering if there were any pu’erh lovers in The Sergent Pepper Lonely Heart Club Band… That’s what your review made me think of…imagination running wild tonight! (major lack of sleep)
One thing I’m sure though is they weren’t eating pizza rolls :-)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, I was just thinking, that’s a pretty interesting combination :)

My Friend Rashad

I was also reading Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance while sitting in a papasan if that helps your visual.

TheTeaFairy

Awww, thank you, now the visual is complete! PS, are you really reading Robert Pirsig? Read it in French for school many years ago as a mandatory philosophy reading…

My Friend Rashad

I am totally reading Mr. Pirsig’s inquiry into values for fun right now. And I’m still drinking puerh 3 hours later.

TheTeaFairy

I don’t remember much, but the urge to leave on a road trip to Montana did come to mind at the time…unless I am mistaking with another novel? Could be…

My Friend Rashad

No that’s correct. Rural Minnesota is insanely beautiful in the spring. You should go.

My “Experimental Techniques of the 20th Century” music professor was obsessed with that book! He talked about it all the time. Sounds like you had a great evening and some great tea.

Shmiracles

i knew my kindle was missing something…. just uploaded! thanks for the reminder!

Terri HarpLady

I read that book the year I bought my Harley!
And yes, Rashad, that’s a great visual, & I bet you were barefoot too! :)
