From Camellia Sinensis

This Sheng (raw) Pu Er has a vegetal character still present despite nearly 15 years of aging in Asia. Its generous leaves release notes of leather and fresh peat, a fruity note of ripe ground cherry and a slightly bitter vegetal note, reminiscent of the skin of cucumber, tickle the palate. Offering a nice complexity and an evolution of aromas over reinfusions, this vintage will delight fans of Sheng Pu Er.

Quantity of leaf / 250ml of water 1 tea spoon
Infusion Time 4-5 minutes
Infusion temperature 95 °C

Using up the last of this, today.

I don’t know why I love drinking something that tastes like the demolition site of pre-war construction, but I do. I love it.


Whatever floats your boat! LOL :)


It’s making me wonder what a mouth full of lead paint and asbestos would taste like. ;-)

Jim Marks

This is more like moth balls, pine resin, very old dust and mildew.

I love it.


I’ve been listening to your tunes on sound cloud whilst browsing your pu-erh reviews. It’s been good :) A few artists come to mind: Aphex Twin, Brian Eno and The Stone Roses.

Jim Marks

Brian Eno, for sure is a big influence. Aphex Twin I have more of a push/pull relationship with.

Ce que j’aime de ce Puerh c’est qu’on sent qu’il est encore “on the edge” de maturer, il est encore vert et en train de tourner vers le terrestre. Vraiment une belle découverte!
