  • “The dry leaves smell faintly sweet. The smell isn’t strong so I can’t really tell what kind of sweet. But it is pleasant. After a quick rinse, the leaves smelled like sweet tobacco. No fish...” Read full tasting note

From Samovar

Origin: Yunnan, China

Flavor Profile: Very balanced, smooth, rich and dark, with a slightly sweet, wildflower honey finish. Deep, strong forward notes of earth and moss with a lingering raisin sugar sweetness.

Tea Story: Pure Pu-erh Ecstasy
This tender, young-leaf pu-erh is so good that it was traditionally used as part of the wedding dowry of the young women who picked it.

Unlike many of our other pu-erhs from Jingmai Mountain, this is vintage loose leaf.

You just can not go wrong when steeping up a bit of this tea in a yixing clay pot. Done right, it is delicious.

Like any good, ripe pu-erh, you won’t need to worry about over-steeping this tea: you can steep the leaves for an hour without yielding any sign of bitterness. Very forgiving.

Pamela, one of our regulars, swears that this tea has propelled her erotica writing to a new level. We swear it is just delicious.

Samovarian Poetry: Rapture & reverie. Consummately captivating, deep dark, sweet & smooth.

Food Pairing: Pair Maiden’s Ecstasy with anything rich, oily, or buttery. Just as perfect with Dim Sum as it is with quiche. An ideal after meal tea: the deep flavor compliments dark or milk chocolate, ice-cream (it’s true!), a stroopwaffle, any flavor of cheese cake. You will feel its digestive powers making your happy belly all the more happy.

Really nice tea. I haven’t had many Pu-erhs, but this is easily the best. Not too earthy or strong. Interesting and delicious.

Ecstasy is all you need to know about this pu-erh. I just had a friend bring me some back from San Francisco and I’m in love. I drank a huge pot all by myself tonight and am half tempted to make more.

Such a beautiful, rich color, and beautifully balanced in taste.

So earthy and rich. Almost malty. My first taste of a Pu-erh tea. Definitely recommend if you like darker, robust teas.

One of the best teas I have ever had. Open leaves before steeping. Steep multiple times and it gets better. Use a pu-erh cup for the best taste.

Just drank this at Samovar on Thursday. Not bad! I’m curious about the blood orange pu-erh. This was surprisingly strong at short 30 second steepings.
