From Chawangshop

Almost on the verge of disappearing, Pu-erh tea paste used to be the special tribute to the Qing Dynasty imperial court. According to the Supplement to the Compendium of Materia Medica, Pu-erh tea paste is often pitch black; It is best known as antidote to drunkenness and the green paste is especially good for improving digestion and reducing phlegm.①

The ripe puerh paste is made of 2009 fermented Yunnan large leaves material. Separate the fibers from the tea infusion by special processes, and then reprocessing the liquor until it is condensed into paste. Extracting 1kg tea paste need 10kg of ripe puerh material. The reasons the tea paste is more expensive are because of more materials cost and more complex manufacturing process. Puerh tea paste looks like charcoal. Its fragrance is similar to that of combined fragrance of brown sugar, candied dates and puerh tea.

The tea liquid is deep red. Full, sweet and unique taste, great experience for lovers of ripe puerh tea!

The puerh paste instantly dissolves in water and leaves no sediment in the cup. The strength of the tea is easy to control. Steeping 1g tea paste in hot water, wait a while and 150ml special puerh tea is ready. Store in a cool dry place, keep away from direct sunlight.

I obtained this in a tea swap with CWarren.

I’ll start with the serious side of the review first. The tea was quite mouth kicking. It had nice brown sugar and earthy notes. It is good for those who like the casual ripe pu-erh that keeps you up throughout the day. However, I was up all day and night. In fact, within the hour of drinking the tea, I was scrubbing the floors and washing the house from within. I wanted to run for the first time in ages (I usually would rather hike). I wanted to sing in the streets & on rooftops.

Rather, I cleaned, took a nice brisk walk on a 95 F day, and sung along to the Beatles. I felt such a surge of energy from this tea, that it allowed me to get a whole a lot done throughout the house; which was relaxing.

Very nice. Thanks again for the tea, CWarren.
