From Cloudwalker Teas

This 15 year old sheng pu erh tea is hand-picked from tea trees growing in the wild of Yunnan province in China. If you are looking for a pu erh with a slightly wild flavour, this one is smooth, with a touch of roughness around the edges suggesting its ancestry. Much of the competition suggests the best pu erh tea comes from wild tea trees. What they don’t do is say that their pu erh teas are actually wild! This is the genuine article. A pu erh tea cultivated from wild tea trees in Yunnan province and aged in Taiwan.

Finishing off the last I have of this so that I can write a review for the SororiTea Sisters blog.

The more I taste this Pu-Erh, the more I like it. It has a delightful sweetness to it that reminds me of burnt sugar.

While it has been a journey of acquiring a taste for Pu-erh, I have quite enjoyed the journey. This is one of the more memorable Pu-erh teas that I’ve encountered.

I drank some of this tea this morning. You know that feeling you get from coffee after about 15-20 mins? It picks you up until you crash later in the morning. Tea like this one is so energy rich that it actually keeps me going all day. I think one of the nicest aspects of this tea is that it comes from “the wild” so I know it’s pesticide free (which comes out in the flavour since it is clean tasting and not bitter). I’m wide awake now and ready to face the world; who wouldn’t be after a tea like this…

I don’t want this to come out the wrong way…but…this looks like a pile of leaves towards the end of fall! LOL It’s not a slam…just an observation!

This also smells like a walk in the woods in the fall.

The taste reminds me of an oolong, almost, but not quite. The first taste is quite nutty, too! It’s oddly smooth. This is much better than I expected – only because I have a hot and cold relationship with pu-erhs, usually, they seem to snub me…this one doesn’t…it’s very social and tries very hard to be noticed without being annoying or obnoxious. I think I will take this wild-child under my wing…this kid’s got potential!

The aroma is a delicious must of an ancient basement carved out of rough earth and sanctified with old incense. There is a warm monkish simplicity to the liquor and a civilized sweetness that belies the wild nature of the leaf.

This is an excellent everyday aged sheng especially for the price.
