Excellent wild Pu-erh. sort of tastes like bamboo or if you’ve ever chewed on a chopstick. light but still earthy, i’ve gotten as many as 13 good infusions out of it before it lost it’s flavor.


Wild? I’ve never heard tea described as wild before.

Yeah I guess it isn’t from a tea garden, people just pick it from wherever. it’s really good though. almost impossible to over steep it too.

My first Puerh!
If it’s true that you always remember your first, this was a nice way to begin. Had around a 6 hour session at Dobra Tea, sitting in the back corner, attempting to get work done.

Steep – Just off boiling, but kept in thermos at table, probably not steady @ 30 seconds

1-2: very sour in a good way, little bit sweet, nothing bitter which surprised me as I thought that was expected in young sheng.
5: smoothing out, still sour, but not overly
10: sour diminished, with much longer sweet aftertaste, kinda numb in the cheeks, head heavy, super focused, but not on my work…got up to ask them what year this was (2011) and couldn’t talk very well…
11-14: Where did the day go? This music is really, really good.
14: getting a bit weaker, but not near done yet, tiny sour (slightly bad sour, but now only in aftertaste), sweet diminished, not quite sure what is going on now.
16: steeping for 45 seconds now, brought it back!
20: by now the tastes are all kinda muted, coalescing into a tasty, but somewhat bland tea. Think I’m pushing it here!
22: forgot about it and steeped 10 minutes. sweet up front, aftertaste is the first time it’s been bitter!
23: forgot it again but only for 1 minute. bitter again
24: back to 45 seconds. sweet and weak, but more in there…i’m letting it win, gotta go home…

[Edit]: wanted to add that I went to bed with a sour taste in my mouth even though I stopped drinking the tea in the early evening. It wasn’t a bad sour, but certainly noticeable!
