A new feature of pu-erh.sk :

pu-erh.sk produced from GǔShù YìWǔ HuāngYě pu-erh tea 12 × 250 grams cakes. They are numbered (stamped) as [041-052]-2016.

The record* of a sale of each cake will be kept for pu-erh.sk These records can be seen later on the pu-erh.sk web site. I thought this way we can all track where cakes of pu-erh.sk went to, where are stored, if they changed its owner, how they are stored, how they age and how they taste. On the web site itself I thought that each owner can create/modify/maintain his own notes on his own. It will be up to each one of you if the record will be kept public or not.

*Quantity, date of sale, name of an owner, a country sent to.

I tried my sample of this one last night. I’m pretty new to sheng, so take my commentary as novice, but – I thought it was entirely pleasant but not mindblowing. It had a nice light bitterness at the front with big warm soft hay/straw sweetness behind it, and I felt a sort of soft pillowy thickness in my mouth. The aftertaste was nice and cool and sweet, but it only lingered a short while and didn’t go far down the throat.

I went 9 steepings, got a burst of energy and jumped up to do a bunch of cooking halfway through, and when all that was done I stuck the leaves in a jar of water in my fridge to cold-brew overnight. This morning, the coldbrew was light sweet hay/straw with no bitterness at all, totally pleasant.

Overall, nice and gentle and light and refreshing. Soft, but the light bitterness zings it up enough to keep it interesting. If this was cheaper I’d be really happy with it as a daily drinker, but given the price I think the short-lived aftertaste and lack of complexity means that I won’t be ordering more even though I did enjoy the sample.

Small steps will be giant strides one day. The puerh thing can take a while. Took me a while as well.

I just don’t want anyone to rely on my reviews as if I knew what I was talking about – gotta just take them as the uninformed impressions that they are! That said, I’m having tons of fun.

I think it takes great courage to step into puerh territory. It can be confusing, overwhelming at times but rewarding when you find that spot. Having fun, the best part!
