Being a Pu-erh shu cha, Qizi has been allowed to fully oxidize and ripen, making it a distinctively (and delightfully!) round tea. Much like a fine red wine, this tea has been called a “drinkable antique,” as its exquisite taste only gets better with age. When brewed, our Qizi produces a deep red color with auburn hues that is reminiscent of a vintage Cabernet Sauvignon. Mellow, smooth, and full-bodied, this earthy tea calls to mind a scene of early morning mist rolling over newly sprouting fields.

Had a good lunch and some time today on this Saturday so I could try this sample I received with my purchase from Yezi,,thanks!
This is my first Shu,,,I have only tried Shengs so far so I am excited!
When I opened the sample package, it smelled just like pears!!! Very intriguing but it dissipated very quickly after that and it was a light fruit scent. These leaves were pretty tight in my sample chunk though so I don’t think the smell was truly evident until I loosened the leaves with water.
I used 205F water and my little 4 ounce gong fu pot.
1. 15" rinse
2 . 30" bit of a second rinse because leaves very tight. Liquor is orange sunshine color.
3. 30" leaves have opened up more and there are definite woody notes with pipe tobacco. Liquor is darker in color, a deep auburn. Thicker too. Flavor is wood and tobacco and it gets better as it cools.
4. 45" even though I don’t want to drink wood and tobacco,,,I keep drinking it. It gives you a nice laid-back feeling. It does get heavy on the stomach,,,I see why it is suggested that you enjoy a nice meal beforehand.
I really love puerh and am fascinated by all tea. I think I like sheng better than shu,,,but I have not tried enough to know for sure. Great first experience with this shu and need to try more :)

I picked this one first thing in the morning for both a sipdown and to try and clear my head with a little puerh. I have to say, this is such a great unassuming puerh from yezi. It’s not earthy..but it is mellow and manly? there’s somethnig about this one that i really enjoy – moreso than the other recent puerh i had from yezi. i’ll likely pick up more of this for an average every day sort of puerh
