From Zhi Zheng Tea Shop

You Le Shan 2007 357gram Raw Puer Cake
This tea was made by a farmer in Jinuo Shan whom we now work with. It has developed a decent chenwei and has good houyun. There is still some initial bitterness but the tea is quite smooth and transforms well. The chaqi is relatively strong. These characteristics together create an impression of a tea which is somewhat bigger and rounder than one might expect.

I’m drinking the 2007 You Le Shan today and finding it rather disappointing. I bought this as part of a package of samples from Zhi Zheng when they still had a webshop and I have quite enjoyed the previous samples. This one, unfortunately, does not impress. The light hay aroma of the dry leaf is pleasant and encouraging although perhaps a touch faded. Is this the warning I should have heeded? The liquor is dark straw coloured and the first sips have the promised pleasing bitterness to them but when that fades, there is a light sweetness and little more left to the tea. I have used most of the sample pack now and experimented with duration and temperature, but to no avail. This is not a bad tea by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t find myself wanting to spit it out and cremate its remains to avenge my offended taste buds. Instead I just find myself drinking it and going “yes, it’s smooth and mellow but also watery and insipid.” It has no body and I cannot feel the promised cha qi. Basically, I find it bland and unexciting. Perhaps it is something in me and my brewing set up, or perhaps this sample was past its best. Who knows? Ah well, I can at least grandpa the rest and move on to pastures new . I shall step out on the pu path with this new awareness secured in my mind and face the next tea tomorrow.

Aww, that sucks. Sorry that this wasn’t a good one. I was saw when I went to their page to buy two sample packs and found the web store is closed :( Mark is a nice guy though and was always attentive. Hopefully I’ll be able to buy again in the future.

Yeah, I had great service and great communication from him when I bought the samples. I would buy beengs of a couple of the samples I had from him if they were available at the right time (i.e. when there is spare money in my wallet), but this tea would not be a candidate for that.

It’s all a learning experience anyway. You don’t learn about tea by only drinking the good stuff. You need something to measure the good stuff against, so all is not lost.
