Another sample from TTB puerh plus.

This smells wonderful, and very much like jackfruit. My first steep was good, what I would expect from a fruity sheng. Very aromatic, with just a hint of bitterness. 2nd steep still had an amazing aroma and now there’s a bit of mouth drying astringentcy. 3rd steep tasted the fruitiest and continued with a bit of astringency. Later steeps mellowed out and got sweeter as the steep times increased into multiple minutes. Very enjoyable!

5 tsp 3 OZ / 100 ML

Mine is pretty sweet at the moment. Then again, I’m flash steeping it.

I’ve had this one a while, but I guess I’ve just been waiting for the right day. It’s warm and sunny this afternoon, and it’s my first day back at work, so a little bit of tropical fruit didn’t seem entirely uncalled for. I brewed this one western style – 1 tsp of leaf for 1 minute in boiling water. I wanted to be conservative with the steep time for my first cup, because frankly I just don’t know what to expect.

The initial sip is a little odd. I get tropical fruit – sort of a pineapple/mango like flavour, sweet and juicy. I also get mushroom, which just has to be the raw pu’erh, and a touch of earthiness in the aftertaste. I’m thinking a lower brew time might be better, although I’d have to try that to be sure. I don’t find it unpleasant as it is, though, and that’s the biggest surprise. It’s odd, yes, but also…delicious? It reminds me of Hawaiian pizza, if I’m honest, and that’s something I never thought I’d say about a tea…

So I found this tea to be absolutely fascinating. I really like the weird tasting jackfruit, kind of tropical but also sorta tastes like overripe fruit/pudrid/rotting fruit, however I kind of like it.

I can taste tea, but can’t identify what type. It wasn’t weak but also wasn’t super strong. I didn’t taste any fermentation/classic pu’erh flavour (which I expected) and found it very interesting. I wil be brewing this more like a traditional pu’erh soon as I feel the tea taste was not very pronounced this time (western brew.) I enjoyed this blend a low and look forward to my next cup.

Sipdown (136)!

Thank you Scheherazade for the sample! I’ve been practically drooling over this tea since LP posted it; it just seemed so damn appealing even though it’s been a while since I’ve had jackfruit. The combination of the fruit and base is brilliant, though! So when I saw the sample in your swap package this was single handily the tea I was most excited to try. The only reason it wasn’t the first one I tried was because I really wanted to make sure I gave it proper attention.

So, I steeped this Western style. Ultimately I felt like I was going to need to make a choice whether or not to put emphasis on the base or the fruit, and I think Western was the right choice to really get a good impression of the fruit. Had I wanted to showcase the base, I likely would have drank this one Gong Fu – and I’d still like to try that just to see the difference.

It’s been a while since I’ve had jackfruit, but as I was steeping this and after the infusion was done I definitely felt like I was getting a really good aroma of jackfruit. It was very tropical and sweet! Jackfruit has always fascinated me because it can be used as a meat substitute and as a vegetarian options are so valuable when it comes to eating. I’ve been holding on to a really interesting Jackfruit “Pulled Pork” recipe for a while and I’d love to have an excuse to try it!

So yeah; first initial flavour was the jackfruit! To me, jackfruit tastes a lot like pineapple. Same kind of sticky sweetness and that ‘tang’ and playful acidity that makes your tongue super sore if you eat too much of it. That was the top note to the whole cuppa; the rest being this very smooth, refreshing and light Pu with floralesque qualities and a subtle earthiness that complimented the tropical vibe of the jackfruit while still keeping it fairly grounded, if that makes sense. Hard for me to say whether this was “meaty” as I don’t eat meat and it’s always been a bit tougher for me to identify meat related flavour notes, but there was also a layer of flavour from the Pu that was kind of like what I’d call “meaty” but also not? Perhaps jackfruit, perhaps pu.

Anyway, I was still very happy with this tea! I think it’s perfectly fair to call it unique, and I think LP has touched on genius with the pairing. I’d very, very much like to get my hands on more of it to play with. Payday IS Friday…

Also; hoping the festival went really well for you LP!

I wanted to start drinking the Liquid Proust teas which I ordered last week. I know that there are so many teas that I have yet to try, but I’m slowly getting there. My tea drinking is most common during the weekend, since I work early in the morning, and I don’t dedicate my time to serve tea in anything other than the Ingenuitea or in a sachet. I prefer having at least an hour to devote to the craft, as well as writing on the typewriter and/or working on homework. Fortunately, the school year is nearly completed (25 days!), so there’ll be more time during the summer to have tea.

(Side Note: I try my best to give honest feedback on teas, and the best description of the flavors. Considering that I’m not as familiar with a lot of different flavors as some folks, I try to explain it as best as I possibly can. I will let you know that I’ve never tasted jackfruit, so my notes may not be the best to look at when considering the tea.)

Anyway, this is a pretty solid tea.

First steep: a lot of the base flavor (raw pu-erh), but there is a subtle note of the jackfruit.

Second steep: the raw pu-erh is coming out of the liquid, but the jackfruit gives the tea a sweeter note, which takes away the slight astringent notes. However, there is a “meaty” aftertaste which lingers in the mouth for a few seconds. There seems to be slight floral notes, but I’m not sure if that’s the jackfruit or the raw working itself into the flavor.

Third steep: The “meaty” flavor disappears after the third steep; the raw is really works itself into the flavor. There seems to be zero astringency to the tea, and it is still slightly sweet.

I’m still working on the tea, but after 3-4 gaiwans worth, I start to pace myself for the remainder of the next couple of hours. I like to savor the flavor, so I’ll drink more as I write my Lesson Plan for my last education course this Spring before I transfer to get my English/History Education certification, starting this Summer-next Spring. This semester has had a hold of me, but I’m nearly done. I have a few papers and exams to finish, and I’ll be done. However, there are still 3 weeks remaining. I figured that I would get the tea review in now, while I can focus on the flavor, before drinking it while multitasking, and forget everything about the tea.

I had full faith this would be a Pu-Erh I could drink. That faith was well placed with Andrew.

I’m impressed with the tea’s clarity. Only a few teas can be so close to crystal. 20 seconds at first, 45 at second. I’ll write more about later brews another time. Or I’ll get off my tukus and edit this post.

Now for the taste. Fruity, a little sweet, and sour. I taste apricot, or the jack fruit, which is like apricot. Maybe dried apple pieces. Clarity describes the taste too.

I know Pu-Erh by approximation on steepster. I’m not sure what qualifies as a better quality Pu-Erh, but I can say this does not have the fermentation taste like others I’ve had. The only decaying quality I can muster is ripe fruit, but ripe fruit sweet enough to eat. I might introduce some of my less experienced tea friends to this, but I would only do so to a green tea drinker. The ripe fruit quality might persuade them otherwise since most of them prefer black teas or oolongs.

I needed this teas clarity. I’m working out to get “jacked” after all.

Thank you Liquid Proust for this sample. This tea was good. I’m not sure when the taste of the jackfruit ended though. It would be nice if the taste of the jackfruit was more prominent. I steeped 4.6g of this tea in a 50ml gaiwan twelve times. The tea itself was quite long lasting. I’d guess I lost the taste of the jackfruit somewhere around steep four or so. I do think there was a bit of a sweet aftertaste from the jackfruit later on. I don’t think it completely went away. Overall this was really good. The tea itself was not bitter and had a nice sweet taste to it. I am guessing this is a young raw puerh. I may have to buy some of this. This might be a tea better steeped western style because then you are getting the jackfruit more than in gongfu where it didn’t last.

I steeped this tea twelve times in a 50ml gaiwan with 4.6g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.

I’m still pretty new to pu-erh, but I just landed lots of samples thanks to Andrew, including this one. Yesterday, I steeped this four times with 4g leaf and 250 ml of water. The second steep was fantastic. It tasted like a caramelized butter. So good. I should mention that yesterday I had about 5 pieces of the fruit.

Today, I went with 4g leaf and 100 ml of water. I’m on steep 3 right now and am starting to get that caramel flavor again. I only have one piece of the fruit, and I got a nice taste of it in the first steep, but not as much anymore. I am really enjoying this tea, and will get some with my next order.

Thanks again for this, Andrew!
