This tea showed up at my house today…or was it yesterday? Maybe the day before. A Baggie from Doc Yang-chu. He didn’t tell me he was sending me something. You just never know about these medicine doctors, their minds are like a maze, all you can do is say “thank you sir” and swallow your prescription.

Weighed out 4 grams loose, one rinse, and let the water cool as he suggested. 40 ml steep to fit my tasting cup. Lovely smelling leaves, some pepper, some floral, spicy, teensy touch of smoke (barely visible black dots of wok char). He described floral notes in his review. Someplace. I can’t remember. Didn’t taste anything myself except bitter if I let it go too long while unplugging the Yixing with a toothpick.

Ok. Doesn’t taste like much, sat on my bed to research and think what to write. Then my neck wouldn’t support my head. Completely stoned in my eyeballs. I can’t bloody think. The doc put weed in my tea. Checked the Baggie. Hm, nothing. Dug around in the pot, several 1 bud/1 leaf sets of the tea variety.

Back on my bed, tried to do a search to find the cake, other reviews, research before writing. Am incapable. Spelling things wrong. Tried finding images, I don’t what happened.

I did find a link to what is called Brilliant Tea Mountain Jingmai, a luxury spa where you can take a puerh tea vacation called Holy Journey to Brilliant Tea Mountain Jingmai. Brilliant spa.com. You can get your entire body exfoliated with Jingmai tea which you can pick yourself if you want. Got hung up on the photos and the campfire night with Original Performances. Had a fantasy of doing my own Original Performance of a Latin Chant directly followed by “Hey Big Spender” from “Sweet Charity” including the bar chair.

What the vacation write up at the spa leaves out is the paragraph “We plan to keep you pleasantly stoned on puerh the entire time and we swear you won’t remember a thing. And we’ll never tell.”

I will research this cake later. In fact I plan to bottle it and take tablespoons as needed at work when no one is looking. It is pure cha qi and nothing else.

But I can guess why the doc’s wife insisted on ordering this cake immediately.

Flavors: Peppercorn

Just found myself in the hallway trying to hang my oven mitt on a coat hook. Haha! Am brewing the shou now per previous note to self: Get the shu on the brew b4 the sheng wears off.


Haha! Ok, I feel stone myself just by reading this review. You are hilarious.


Can’t seem to find where to buy this tea, however.


Hey, when you find out, let me know :-)


2012 景迈山 古树茶 ?


Could be this 云南 景迈山千年古树纯料茶 七子饼茶 2012年生茶


dantea.taobao.com, then paste the above into the store search box top left of the store page.


35 yuan as in $5.65.


Omg, I feel dizzy just by looking at the website!! You deserve an award for figuring this out!


And it’s a 500g cake!!!


After all this effort, that tea stone is still in me, for I just put Preparation H on my face instead of acne cream. I WISH I was kidding. :/ Note to self, don’t drink tea and drive.


Lol, if it makes you feel better, I heard Dr Oz saying Preparation H is very good for wrinkles ;-)


Okay I just ordered 3 cakes from the low feedback seller, lol. Only $26 and change for 3 cakes and the shipping to Taobaofocus. If they do get this package, I will verify the wrapper is the same as the photo. The seller claims to have 269 cakes, and the tea is not pricey enough to bother faking. It would just be a substitution I am looking out for.


Don’t forget to let us know how it turns out ;-)


Yah I will, I have low expectations going in^^


Agreed, I may want to steal one of these from you some day.


Oh crud, the doc says it close but not quite. Well, I will have to see how it works out.


Taobaofocus said they have received no response from the seller and think the store might be closed for the above cakes. So my money has been returned.

This is a very, very good tea. This one we tasted before purchasing and my wife was insistent on buying a cake. Sorry I didn’t get the chance to put the picture up, as it has a decent wrapper. Maybe later, I’ll figure that out.

I’ve drunk this several times. Only one time did I errantly steep incorrectly, i.e., too long, which produced a bitter an unremarkable brew.

Now to the brew done right. The times were 15s/15s/15s/15s/30s/1m.

Round #1: The potent cha-qi is evident immediately. Long-jing notes, floral and round in the mouth, hints of black pepper and citrus. Touch of tannin which is a nice compliment.

Round#2: More of the Long-jing taste, less floral immediate taste but more floral huigan.

Round #3: Sweeter and sweeter.

Round #4: Sweeter still.

Round #5: The liquor grows lighter caste, though never is it intense. Don’t let that deceive you. Pleasant citrus aroma, with a taste of lime. Mild tannins. Still floral. The huigan is outstanding. Just waiting a minute or two and you notice your mouth feels full of flowers, polite sweet flowers, not bawdily unctuous like jasmine or tinged with a bitterness like rose. Flowers I can’t place.

Round #6: Blend of sweetness and mellow tannins, floral finish that just stays and stays.

Flavors: Flowers, Lemon Zest, Peppercorn

Glad I am not the only one that gets the peppercorn taste notes in puerh. Yum jingmai has some nice tea coming from it.


I notice it more in a variety of Moonlight White that I have, the pepper taste.


I agree on the peppercorn notes… doesn’t happen all the time but sometimes there is a hidden smokey spice that seems to make me think peppercorns. Cigarette ash is another I am reluctant to use because it repulses some… but it is for sure a flavor in pu erh. Great tasting note btw :)


Glad you liked it. I tried to place for a big order, but it sold out. I’ll be getting in a number from the same company in late Oct, pm me if you want any samples.
