From Yezi Tea

Hailing from China’s famed tea growing Yunan province, Gu Dian is the most premium (Shaolin Master, if you will) of Puer teas. Yezi’s Gu Dian is vintage 2005—so far back that the iPhone was still an idea in Steve Jobs’s head, and you couldn’t “poke” anyone on Facebook!

Gu Dian is available in 12.3 oz. / 350-gram disks. The resulting brew is deep red, reminiscent of a glass of fine wine. Gu Dian is smoother than a Herbie Hancock song and has forward-facing caramel notes. If you visit Hong Kong, you will find that many people favor a particular tea shop not because of its location or the polite manners of its proprietor but because of the distinctive flavor of the establishment’s Puer tea. Needless to say, the shops with the best Gu Dian are the shops that get the most traffic.

5/21/14

Origin: Yunnan Province, China
Vintage 2005
Dry Leaf- scents of pears and dried apples, tiny bit of wood
203F 2 tsp – 4 oz h2o
Gong FU
30” – rinse
30” liquor smells woody, sweet, vegetarian prune brownie. Taste is creamy, silky, smooth, sweet and woody notes.
45” as leaves loosen more, liquor is a darker burnt sienna color. Notes of wood but not harsh, smooth. Sweet prune bread, just prune,,no sugar.
. 30” leaves loose now,,the woodiness is turning into notes of espresso.
45” delicious and the feeling is cleansing and rejuvinating!!! Far Out!!
1 minute – I can drink no more tea but this last steeping is a light espresso note with subtle sweetness. There are some essences of dried fruit as well.

This tea has been stored very well and am glad that I got a chance to try it.

Thank u to Yezi Tea for this sample with purchase!!

TTB&C #14

I have been wanting to try Pu-erh, but havne’t been brave enough to purchase much. This is my first. I brewed this per the recommended instructions. I enjoyed the flavor, but I couldn’t quite get over the smell. I have some pu-erh from Verdant that I will be trying next. I am not to sure what to say about this. It didn’t jump out at me as crazy delicious, but it definitely peaked my interest into the world of pu-erh. Thank-you to whoever included the small sample pouch in the TTB. I have left enough for hopefully one other person to give it a whirl.

Did you rinse it?

TeaTiff

rinse with boiling water?

boychik

You should always rinse, just cover w/boil water 5 sec. Sometimes I rinse twice. Then let rest for couple min. I do in gaiwan short steeps 5/10/15 sec progressing and adding time. You can even do it in steeping basket just lift it. And ratio is important. For 150 ml gaiwan I add 1tbs of leaves or 5-7 g tea. It’s diff if you brew western style. I prefer gongfu for puerh

Thank you for the tips for pu-erh. I will have to play around with the pu-erh from Verdant that I have!

I love the distinctive pu’erh flavors of loam and sun-warmed wood and this tea certainly delivers. The flavor is a bit more delicate than I would have expected though that is not necessarily a bad thing. A good mid-morning or afternoon tea.
