From Crimson Lotus Tea

“A world of flavor in the palm of your hand!” This is a new planet in our Yunniverse.

Don’t let their small size fool you. These tiny spheres of puerh are made from Jinggu Shan big tree material. They were picked and processed in Spring of 2017 and were pressed in the Summer of 2017.

If this were space and I were a space cowgirl, I’d pass by Planet Jinggu for a planet with a more favorable atmosphere for a derk. An atmosphere that’s not so floral and vegetal. Give me fruity pu (or meaty or resinous or citric or herbal) or give me anoxic space death. Some other things that didn’t sit right with me: flat in the mouth, lots of broken material and charred bits, a little too tightly compressed. It does have great longevity, though. Material is still very green. Is that characteristic of Jinggu leaf and/or related to the level of compression? Gets bitter later on.

Get this if you like floral pu.

I’m really glad I ordered a lot of these little Planets that CLT released last year. Some people aren’t big fans of the teaball format, but I don’t find them to be too much of a hassle to deal with. Just takes a liiiitle bit longer to get opened up. The dry leaf is very sweet and floral smelling – even more so, with a bit of green veggie nose after the rinse.

This one was really a creamy floral bomb that got nicer and nicer as the ball opened up. A thick and pleasing mouthfeel that went down the throat as well. There was a small bit of vegetal astringency, but it never got particularly intense – instead just balanced the overall flavor of the tea. Good stuff in a little package.
