I’ve been really impressed with my Bird Pick samples so far. All have been things I can see myself restocking in the future. And I really enjoy ripe pu-erh so I was really looking forward to trying this.
1 heaping tsp, 8oz water, boiling, 2,3,4 minutes.
This is a really good shou. Earthy, sweet, and not super dark, heavy, or intense. This is medium bodied, super smooth, and so easy to drink. All three steeps kept dissapearing on me. This is what I consider a perfect everyday shou pu. Tasty and addictive, without feeling too decadent. I always feel like I need to spend extra time and effort gongfu style steeping most ripe puerhs, but this one is so good western style.
