I dug out my expensive ceremonial set for today, my husband is at home all day (which is a rarity) and it would be nice to have a Pu Erh session. To drink Pu Erh I need to give it time and the love it deserves, if I can’t steep a Pu Erh over at least a 3 hour period it seems wasted.

Today’s Pu Erh is this Yang Pin from 2010. It’s only from a sample pack but I am looking forward to trying it.

The raw Pu Erh consists of dark green, brown, dark brown and gold leaf pieces. The brick contains broken and whole leaves though from a quick look I cannot note any discolouration. It has a musty yet sweet scent, with wood smoke and damp earth.

Steeped it has a subtle yet sweet almost herby scent.
Flavour is mellow, sweet and creamy with elements of damp wood, bitter earth and wood fog. It lingers in the after taste.

Further steeps reveal some sourness and an increase on the smoke and damp wood flavours. It’s not unpleasant but there is a roughness to it now, a contrast to it’s sweet and creamy beginnings.

This was a nice tea though it became harsh too quickly for my liking. I don’t think this would be one I would buy more of, though it’s going to be easy enough to finish off the 50g sample.
