From Puerh Shop

This brick is made by using 2013 Spring big tree materials from Lincang area. Its big brother is MGH 1206 brick that we liked very much so we decided to make it again in 2013.

It’s refreshing to get started with bright yellow broth, some Castanea flavor with light bitterness, but giving away to a nice throat feeling long after drinking the tea. It is a unique tea that wins its own place in our collection.

It is definitely a worthwhile tea for current consumption and long term storage.

It offers better taste profile, higher nutritional value with no chemical additive, the big tree/Qiaomu/Arbor material IS the essence of a premium tea. The traditional tried and true processing method was adopted in making of these MGH teas.

You can taste the difference now and in the furture when the tea is aged.

Dry – Slightly fruity sweet with a slightly stronger fruity/floral tartness.
Wet – Fruity sweetness with a tart background and some citrus notes.
Liquor – Pale green/yellow color.

1st 20secs Slightly sweet and mellow with fruity notes up front. As it goes down it is somewhat tart and smooth that slowly builds a hint of bitterness and ‘green’ characteristics. The aftertaste is sweet gentle with some fruity and floral hints that last with some ‘green’ taste.

2nd 20secs Tart and sweet initial taste with fruity notes. Once it starts to go down it is ‘greener’ tasting with some faint astringency and some underlying bitterness. The aftertaste is still sweet, fruity and floral with a less ‘green’ and more Puerh like taste.

3rd 30secs Sweet and fruity initially that turns bitter-sweet with fruity and floral notes. As it goes down, it becomes more floral with just hints of fruit notes and some astringency is present but it is still pleasant. The stronger tartness of this steeps rewards you later with a sweeter aftertaste that lingers in the tongue and throat.

FINAL NOTES
I did several steeps of this sample. I liked the fact that it held really well around the #6-9 which is unusual for the price range. I’m glad I was able to tell right away it was a Lincang material with out reading the description on the web site, but I have to admit really young Puerh is not my choice.

The first two steeps felt like a Puerh spiked green tea (in a good way), but at the same time it had too much green herbaceous initially. The brick is REALLY tightly compressed and it took 3-4 steeps to open properly. Once it did the tea showed more Sheng traits that were very well welcomed together with some harsher young Puerh notes. Overall, Lincang is an amazing area for young tea because is not as harsh as others. I’d recommend this for people who like young Puerh or if you are just starting with Puerh. Later steeps get slightly bitter and somewhat astringent so be aware of that.

The second tea that I’ve tried from the Puerhshop. I bought a TON of tea recently from them (plus some cakes from Crimson Lotus and the Dark Matter from LP) and I’d say I’m good for a long time. On top of that, I have a vendor from China sending some samples for me to try (which I hope isn’t a scam—although he didn’t want anything from me but an address…so….I’ll let you know).

Anyway, back to this tea….https://www.instagram.com/p/BDMiwkQg-0p/?taken-by=sgsanders1

I had a total of 10 brews from this. The first steeping was sweet, slightly astringent, and vegatal. However, as the sessions continued, the astringency wore off, and the vegetal notes grew, and it had a touch of sweet grass. I wasn’t able to get a full set of notes on this, due the inability to focus 100% on the tea because I was playing Star Wars Battlefront online; however, I know that this tea was enjoyable, and will be put on the “to get after I sipdown half of my tea cupboard” list. I loved this session, and that is all I have to say about it.

After a rinse the leaves smell like pear and forest. The rinse infusion tastes very light. The taste starts out a bit like prune and is slightly woody and smokey in the finish.

The first infusion is really tasty. Lightly smokey at first with a mid sip of sweet fruit, orange peel and a bit of honeysuckle. There’s a long lingering taste of orange peel after the sip.

The second infusion is a bit more tart and reminds me of orange again with notes of green olive. The next infusion is even more tart and with a bit of a bitterness in the finish. There is less distinguishable flavor overall and more the sensations of tartness and bitterness. Subsequent infusions taste similar but the flavor continues to pale. The tartness wanes but the light bitterness stays.

This Puer was very tightly compressed, and it took several infusions to really come apart. The first few infusions of this tea were a real delight and what I’ve come to expect from MGH, but I didn’t feel it performed as well in later infusions. The young bitter Puer qualities seem to lurch forward. It isn’t my favorite from that factory but was definitely a nice sample to try.
