Recent Tasting Notes


I picked a few things up including this sweet little gem up at a tea house in 磁器口 after a few hours of sipping and talking tea with the lady of the house. I think it was around 5$ Canadian. What.a.steal!

It is green label pu’erh, from 2011. The leaves are medium brown with flecks of pale golden and white throughout. It smells sweet- a bit chocolatey. It was rather difficult to break apart with my pu’erh pick.

After a quick rinse and about 3 steepings I am really getting a thick mouthfeel, it is rich and pleasant. this pu’erh is floral, smoky, a tad bit medicinal tasting, yet sweet and has a strong chaq. I am so thankful to the tea guru genius lady who recommended this incredible nest of a gift!

I am fully enjoying the tea itself and the memories of endless days spent in China enjoying fantastic tea with friends!

I love this tea. It is a great value whether from Puerhshop or Dragon Tea House. It has very little fermentation flavor left. It has very little earthiness at all. It has a lot of sweet flavor, including chocolate notes. My tea today also had orange notes, but that’s because I added 4g of tangerine peel to the gaiwan. This added a nice flavorful, sweet dimension to the tea. This is not a smoked tangerine peel like in tangerine puerh.

I brewed this seven times in a 220ml Gaiwan with 9.2g leaf and 4g tangerine peel in boiling water. I brewed it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, and 2 min. There were three to five steeps left had I wanted to continue. IT weakened somewhat by the seventh steep. The chocolate notes got more pronounced in the latter steeps.
