From Tealux

Here at Tealux, the 2009 version of Pu- Erh from the Yong De Zi Yu tea factory in China is among our favourites, so we are excited to be able to offer you this Ripe Pu- Erh Golden Buds tea from Yong De Zi Yu’s 2010 harvest.

Certified organic by the COFCC, this tea is produced using only the first flush spring harvested leaves rather than the slightly inferior summer harvest Pu- Erh often used in its place.

Fermented to perfection, Yong De Zi Yu Golden Buds Ripe Pu- Erh 2010 harvest produces an aromatic and satisfying brew which is sure to delight. Naturally light and with distinctive sweet notes, gentle steeping produces a pale but rich golden infusion with notes of peat and oak. This tea is eminently drinkable and sure to please any tea lover- highly recommended for all Pu- Erh enthusiasts and tea perfectionists anywhere in the world.

Pressing on with pu’erh exploration I grabbed another sample from my dear friend Dexter3657. Thank you again.

I read scribbles’ note on this beforehand. It was not giving much away anyhow so it’s not liked I cheated. In fact reading it now, as I sip, I think to myself “a lighter pu’erh?” “Nuttiness?” Huh. I dream of my French press, I think I will treat myself to a coffee after all this. I’ve been “miss” with teas today.

Well, this is not a miss because I knew drinking it would be an exercise in determination so it’s not like I expected a delicious cup. Knowing there are people out there like mrmopar — who also thought this stuff was insufferable at first but know guzzles it with great pleasure — gives me hope.

This stuff is dark, yo. I steeped for 2 minutes as the package said (after a short rinse that was my decision, not package indicated). 1.5 tsp with boiling 8 oz water. And while it is not offensive, it is not exactly enjoyable. Tastes a bit earthy, but only a little. My lack of enjoyment stems from the fact that this has no taste. Other than the recognizable pu’erh flavour I don’t get much else. … One day…


Instead of chucking it, use it for blending. I use puerh like this by adding some cinnamon chips and a pinch of black tea that I like. Shu resteeps well as does cinnamon so it goes a long way on a cold day.


Bonnie, you are so right! I always forget to blend things. There’s not much left to chuck, it was a small sample but I might blend the used leaves for further steeps.


A little cinnamon stick in with your pu’erh is really good – I agree with Bonnie on this one. I sent you that one because it is cheap generic pu’erh – was trying to help you see the difference between the ok and the really good. Shurg you might just not like it. I’m drinking Mandala Special dark right now (tasting note to come). OMG this is like cocoa powder from an excellent chocolatier (? sp is that not a word?).

Dexter3657 sent this my way in an extremely generous swap box…thank you so much!

This is a pleasure to sip. It is a lighter tasting pu’erh than what I have been drinking lately, but definitely delicious. It has a light nutty taste, with just the slightest hint of earthiness. Definitely comforting after a difficult day.
