For some reason I haven’t been drinking a lot of puerhs lately. It’s not often I break out a shu and even less often I break out a sheng, even though I have two boxes of each. I should really remedy that situation! One reason is for this oversight is I usually drink puerh tea in the afternoons, but lately I haven’t been drinking any caffeinated teas after noon. However, today I have my first writing class tonight and I thought it would be beneficial to be more alert than I normally am… ;-)

I did several steeps of this in my yixing teapot. I’m getting some interesting notes that remind me a bit of coffee or bittersweet chocolate. I recall I liked this cake a lot when I first tried it, and it still seems really good to me. I gave up on wanting more after the 4th steep but I’m glad I revisited this.

I have 2009 version. I like it a lot, maybe 1/8 of a cake left. I make it 212F and shorter steeps until its light in color and taste like nothing. What’s your parameters?


I usually use boiling water and steeps of around 30 seconds


I like the Hong Yuns a lot.


Writing class…fiction? Hope it’s fun and interesting!

I go through phases where I want puerh, but I know I won’t have time for all the repeat steepings, so I end up drinking something else.


g- it’s a non fiction writing workshop

I previously reviewed the 2008 Dayi HongYun Pu-erh, I loved it, and have bought several since. I haven’t changed my view on this tea, other than—it’s grown on me quite a bit since my first review.

Also, I highly recommend PuerhShop.com, I’ve been a customer for several years, and I really appreciate the quality and service. Thank you Pu-erh Shop! :)

Tea Notes:
Delicious. Earthy and rich in flavor with a hint of sweetness on the nose. Nice leathery and woodsy flavor notes, a well-rounded Pu-erh. I steep my Pu-erh’s a lot longer than most, because I enjoy them strong, so my reviews might be skewed compared to other people’s liking. The first and second steep are great with this tea, but its rich flavor fades, thins out past where I like it by the third steeping. But that’s not really a negative for me. Delicious and Affordable.

My Ratings…
★ = Didn’t Hate It.
★★ = Not Bad.
★★★ = Me Likey.
★★★★ = Impressive!
★★★★★ = AwesomeSauce!
