From Norbu Tea

This tea is composed of leaf material that was harvested in Feng Qing County of Western Yunnan’s Lincang Prefecture in the Fall of 2005. After fermentation, the tea was dried and sorted by leaf size in a large, wind-tunnel grading/sorting machine. The smallest leaf grade is referred to as Gong Ting, followed by Te Ji (super-fine), then grades 1, 2, 3, up to grade 9. As with all Pu-Erh tea, leaf grade is merely an indication of the size of the leaf. It is not an indication of quality.

The level of fermentation done to this batch of tea is what I would call medium, meaning that the leaves were left with enough integrity to allow for the development of flavor and complexity to occur during post-fermentation storage. This tea has had since the Fall of 2005 to mellow after fermentation, and the Wo Dui (sour fermentation flavor) has largely dissipated. Like many Lincang ripe teas, the flavor of the infused tea is smooth, mellow, slightly spicy with distinctly woody/peaty aromas. The aftertaste is clean and mildly sweet. The tea liquor is moderately thick but not muddy or heavy feeling in the mouth like some gong ting and other small leaf grades can be.

steepster is acting up for me this morning so we’ll see how this goes. Sipdown of this one from terri/nofars. I’ve been drinking this all morning now that i’m back in the land of my tea cupboard. I feel like i have a million things to get through today and not enough hours in the day. This is a really tasty Shu so far. It’s not too bold, not too wimpy. I have only been through a few steepings so more to come later. heh

Another Sipdown from NofarS.
This is actually the next to last tea in the box Nofar sent me! This is a nicely aged Shu, free of off tastes. A very satisfying contrast to the Sheng I was sampling alongside it.
Thanks again, Nofar, for this awesome trade! I especially like the teas from Norbu!

A hectic and somewhat fruitless day ended on a high note with 6 brewings of this tea. I’m very new to the world of pu’erh, but I love how this tea changes with every brewing, and I particularly like it from the third brewing on.
