I got a small packet of this tea a long time ago – it’s been kicking around my storage for quite a while, and I pulled it out today at random and decided to brew it up. The base material is quite nice. I noticed the rum/barrel notes most on the nose. They didn’t come through all that much in the taste. This shou is more sweet than woody. Some heavy vanilla, somewhat rummy in taste, lightly floral, molasses. Again, mostly got the rum on the nose, which made for an interesting session compared to most shou. I don’t generally think of aroma as being a big part of shou compared to a lot of other teas, but this one definitely bucks that trend. If LP ever did another run of this or something like it, I’d seriously consider picking some up.

I bought this one…ages ago, so it’s a massively long overdue first try for me. I’m not too worried about keeping pu’erhs, though, since they tend to age gracefully. I’ve not tried many pu’erhs like this one before (and by that, I mean of the needle variety). It’s very cool looking! The dry leaf smells strongly of rum, which I’m taking as a good sign because – let’s be honest – rum improves most things. I’m at work today, and it can certainly improve that!

Brewed, I’m pleased to find that the rum is retained. The first steep is like drinking a light-ish black tea with a slug of rum added, with all the aromatic sweetness that might suggest. The pu’erh isn’t earthy or muddy even though it’s a ripe, which is as welcome to me as it is unusual because it allows the flavour of the rum to shine through. This is a smooth easy-drinker if ever there was one, and it’s such a shame it’s no longer available.

I really liked this tea. I bought two bags of it because I was so impressed by it, and have hardly touched it since. Lol. What is going on in my head? I guess when I’m craving tea I’m never like “oh I’m craving tea that tastes like alcohol”. I should really bust it out and have some more before the cold weather is all gone. Seems a nice cold weather tea.

Okay this is a tea I normally wouldnt have tried, Im not the biggest fan of flavored tea. But the teabox is to allow us to taste tea we normally wouldnt get the chance to do so otherwise.

Im glad I decided to take a chance, using a gaiwan and a very short quick rinse.

The first couple infusions were very very rummy… surprisingly so… the aroma was incredibly intense and so was the flavor, I kept thinking I was actually drinking something alcoholic. The liquor was a dark medium brown, the color of Rum or Cola..

After the first two infusions , the strong rum flavor started to mellow and more of the puerh flavors started to come out. I got the wet wood and peat flavor, and the interesting thing is, unlike most flavored puerh, the rum actually complemented the ripe flavor instead of clashing with it.

Very glad I tried this.

Recommended!

From smelling the tea in the cup although I thought that it would come across as extremely rummy because that it the overwhelming smell that came from the bag (not saying that that is a bad thing). The resulting brew however tasted nothing like any of the ripe puerhs that I have tried, granted I haven’t tried THAT many. It sips in with a quite strong taste of muscatel and grape and overall is actually quite fruity. This is probably one of my favorite ripe puerhs that I have had. It definitely tastes like rum but more in the same way that

I tried this one because a number of folks had extolled the amazingness of this one. I hadn’t had a chance to place an order so i was glad to see it in the box to try. Thanks for sharing with us LP! I have to say, i love the shou in this one, and the addition of the “rum” aka aging in the barrels is a fun experiment. slightly sweet….earthy…creamy. interesting experiment!

I heard great things about this one, but pu’erh in general is not my thing and I think I’m still too much of a novice to get into this. The flavor was okay, but I really didn’t like the smell (which was strong, whether it was dry leaf, wet leaf, or the brew itself). I didn’t get rum from this either. Mainly I tasted the earthy/spicy notes I’ve found in most pu’erhs. Slightly disappointed because I adored Liquid Proust’s Nostalgia, but again, I think this is just not my genre of tea.

GCTTB DAY 3

Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to try many teas today, but hopefully I can get at least one more in before bed. It’s already 6pm and I’m just sitting down for the day so it will have to be a tisane, but I’ve got a few lined up that I want to try. :)

I’ve heard so much about rummy pu and have definitely stalked it’s Steepster page before that when I saw his in the box I knew I had to try it. Hard alcohol and tea are my two favourite things, and this tea holds them both up surprisingly well! I have no idea what it is about puerh tea that allows it to produce this flavour but it is intriguing, and also quite pleasing. It has a strong body, with a slightly stinging aftertaste that reminds me of the liqueur. It smells and tastes slightly sweet and faintly earthy (puerh type). Puerh is still not a tea I can see myself reaching for very often, but as far as puerh goes this was so far the best one I’ve tried. I steeped it with a teaspoon of leaf for 3 minutes in just under boiling water.

Sample pulled from the Pu’erh Plus TTB.

Brewed in a test tube steeper. I’d call it Western method because I had little leaf (going by what is suggested on the website) and did long infusion. 3 minutes, 10.

It’s a given that the leaf smells of rum (dark rum specifically), but it’s worth note that even after the leaf is spend, I can still smell rum. And from the shou, I pick out sticky rice. The liquor is cloudy (unexpected but not unexpected, considering) and full-bodied. Note: I strictly drink wine and beer, no hard liquor. Not to my taste. That includes both kinds of rum. Maybe in baked goods. I pulled this tea from the box out of curiosity. I can definitely taste the rum and in know way it is overpowering or overwhelming. It works very nicely with the shou, which itself is excellent and adds an earthy, sweet note and a creamy texture. I enjoyed both cups greatly.

Enjoyed this to unwind tonight after driving home from an overnight trip. Glad I received more while I was gone!
