From Mandala Tea

Why do we call this tea nugget “young?” Because technically, we can’t call it “old” until 2018. That’s right, it can only earn the moniker “old tea nugget” after celebrating its 5th birthday. This kind tea nugget was formed during the fermenting/ripening of spring 2013 leaves and was produced by the same workshop that supplied us with our Noble Mark ripened leaves. They produce excellent teas and we are very pleased to offer their tea nugget.

trying to drink a little bit of my puerh today as well. Some days it feels like i’m getting dangerously close to having only puerh in my cupboard haha. This one was a western brew – it’s a nice cup imo…slightly sweet but overall a good solid ripe puerh. I’ll have to see how this fares at a later date gonfu style :)

Thank you again, Garret!

I had a hard time with this one. Really earthy, and musty-almost smelled like fish food. The taste was significantly better-earth and somewhat sweet as described with a brown, burgundy, and slightly purple color. I could Gongfu only one cup, though. I wasn’t feeling great the day I was drinking it, and I could not drink any more. My review may be skewed, but don’t let it detract you from trying it. This is a connoisseur’s tea, and one for the adventurous.

HI! with tea nugget, it’s important to use 2 to 3 10 second rinses with the hottest water possible. When steeping, I usually use steeps of 30 to 40 seconds for a few infusions and then up the time from there. The mushroomy, briny (fishy) smell you are getting happens in a young ripe tea and is often dissipated with the rinses.

Yep, I did two ten second rinses with when my water was boiling so hot that steam was escaping the lid. I think that I should have probably done three rinses to get a better profile. Thank you, Garret!

This is a relatively tasty ripe puerh. It is sweet with a fair amount of fermentation flavor. The fermentation taste is not overpowering. I only brewed this western style this morning so I didn’t get the whole range of flavors.

I brewed this twice in an 18oz teapot with 6.1g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it twice for 30 sec and put the second steeping in a thermos.
