  • “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.

This was a very unique tea with an interesting nose. I am going to have some more to really see how it strikes me.

I tried this tea for the first time tonight, although the smell of the brewed tea turned me off a little bit, it tasted like nothing i’ve ever tasted before, it was fabulous, dark and smooth. I will certainly be drinking this again soon!

It has been a couple weeks since my last cup of this fine concoction. It really hit the spot and got me moving after my exercise session I did today.

First try of the Maiden’s Ecstasy and it’s not bad a lot. Very delicate taste, good for breakfast. Note to self: let cool the water a little bit more next time.

Just drank a cup of this. Steeped for about 3 minutes but woke the leaves up previously. Great tea! I may steep longer next time to really get the taste. Overall, great tea.
