While trying too slim down my samples from swaps, because I just sent out 11 or 12 more swaps, I am just pulling packages out and abusing them until they are gone.

Yesterday I pulled this one out and realized I had enough for two sessions. Yesterdays session was pretty long because I came back to it after an oolong break. Today I am using the rest of the leaf and seeing how it does with longer steeps because I made it a bit light yesterday. This is a tea that would be ideal to have at work as there is nothing special about it that would require some real focus, but at the same time it does lack something unique to set it apart; granted, it is very smooth and the one brewing it can control the depth of the earthiness by volume and steep time, I would want something a little sweeter.

Unfortunately this one is sold out on YS which makes it hard for me to evaluate its price tag with the usage of it because now I use ripe to make pu’erh extract, broth, and hopefully truffles… aside from the solo drinking, tea for swapping, and then tea to share at events.


It’s available on Aliexpress from reputable seller . I think it’s $24. If you want I can send you a link


Last price on YS-US before they sold out was $25

I bought this ripe pu’er for a fantastic price – $20 for 500 grams at Yunnan Sourcing. I was hoping this would be a great daily pu’er. Turns out, first infusion are really rich – tobacco, bitter cocoa and nut shelly. Middle infusions lighten to a pine, fruity sweet and sap – getting sweeter and sweeter with each infusion – very delicious. The texture is my favorite part of this pu’er as it’s slick and creamy, so feels amazing to drink!

Around the 9th infusion – MEGA TEA DRUNK. Woweee – this tea packs a punch – that deep breath, heart tightening, manic, I feel fantastic tea drunk feeling.

In the end, not a daily tea – the tea drunk is too strong in this one.

One day soon I will have to brew this tea nine times and see if I can replicate your experience. I never got tea drunk off of this. Did you drink it with or without sugar? Its my opinion that that effects the effect.

Oolong Owl

No sugar, just gong fu brewing – 2 rinses, 10 seconds to start, adding 10 seconds to each infusion. Next time I’m going to try 5 seconds as it’s pretty rough to start.


I thought this tea pretty good too. I picked up a tong about a year and a half ago when it was still $18 a cake or so.


Very interesting report on your blog about this. I thought Yunnan Sourcing had raised the price on the China site as well as the US, maybe not.

Oolong Owl

I bought the cake in late September and the pricing is the same, though appears to be sold out on the US site. I’d like to say they could charge more for this one, but I won’t as the price is nice, haha!


A bang up shou for shoure…tea pun intended!


I love it. It makes me sleepy Allan. 1rinse/Short steeps and no sugar. I have it instead of Sleepytime.


O.o tea drunk time yay! I think mine just wore off.


Holy moly! This tea got me real messed up! I did a gong fu session in my gaiwan which is about 4 oz with 6.5 grams. I did 18 steeps and like I said boy was a feeling it for a while. I did two rinses of 10 seconds each and then my steeps were 15, 15, 20, 20, 25, 25, 30, 30 and so on. You can see my pattern. So the 5 seconds might only work if you know when to quit. Lol, I didn’t. In conclusion, awesome tea!
