I found Jalam Teas‘s Nan Nuo Mountain to be a relaxing, yet refreshing pu’er that screamed “sit back, sip slowly and enjoy” to enjoy its fantastic aftertaste.

Early infusions this pu’er is a sweet vegetal bamboo and woodsy flavor, that turns mineral copper in later infusions. However, this pu’er has an incredible aftertaste that lingers for at last 5 minutes – a peachy flavor! Yum!

Very nice tea from Jalam teas – very tempting too. A monthly tea club for $19 you get a small cake? That’s pretty cool! I should really drink down my stash first!

From the Puerh TTB #2

I have a terrible habit of hoarding the last few grams of a tea, and when I participate in a TTB, that’s often all that I get. So I have a box of about 30 samples I’ve taken from the TTBs over the past year that I haven’t tried. Kind of dumb. Yesterday I polished off the last 2 grams of an EoT sample and enjoyed it so much I decided to try this tea today.

It started out really well with a sweet straw flavor with very long strong finish. Good mouth-feel. Hint of caramel. Strong cha qi. Very approachable, but fairly complex and interesting. The 2nd steep smelled a bit like damp ashes but that quickly went away. Mild taste builds power in the mouth leading to a big finish. Taste is damp straw with no sign of the caramel, but a hint of ashes. Becomes astringent as it cools. The 3rd steep again gave me a hint of ashes in the nose, but they again dissipated quickly. The taste is stronger, with wood as well as straw flavor. Astringent but not bitter; the astringency builds in the finish to the point that it is too much.

In both the second and third steeps, the finish is stronger than the taste, and the flavor increases dramatically if I aerate the tea while it’s in my mouth. If this were a wine, I would say that it is “closed-in” and together with the tannin I would suggest that it needs age to come together. I’m not sure if it works that way with tea, but suspect this is a tea that would age.

The fourth steep is ca return to the first steep: no ashes in the nose, but a rich clean flavor. Like it finally woke up. Shows a hint of tart bitterness at the finish. The cha qi is still very strong. Overall a good tea; I wish I could try it again in 10 years.

This is a very easy sipping puerh. Not my fave type, though if I hadn’t lost track of the time(2nd steep) I might have got more menthol and been more impressed but I guess now I’ll never know. Wah.
Anyhow, I did enjoy it. Really I did. It’s just that whenever I have a lighter puerh, I always think to myself that I really do prefer the darker variety. What a shame. I really need to get into the zen of it. But then getting annoyed at myself for not being able to “zen out” is somewhat counterproductive…. ok I’ll stop.

The tea is good. There is that clay sort of feel that I have mixed thoughts on in the first infusion, along with a long and flat woody note.
Second one is sweeter, with a bit of peach and that slight minty cooling sensation. Not sure about bamboo. What does bamboo taste like again?

Thanks Jalam Teas for the sample!! (by way of my buddy K)

LOL good idea. I love bamboo in my Thai food, but then its usually covered in sauce. I need to buy me a can!
