The raw material of this Palace Ripened Pu-erh Cake is from Menghai County of Yunnan and it was harvest in 2009, but in 2010 it was pressed into cakes. After many years of transformation under dry storage condition, the pile flavor has disappeared, and instead, it is full of aged fragrance. When brewing, the strong glutinous rice aroma emanates from tea liquid, which immediately arouses the desire to drink. More importantly, its glutinous rice aroma is very persistent, and even the tea is tasteless, but the tea liquid will still have some pleasant aroma, which is very rare for the pu-erh cake of this price

Nobody has wrote a note for this one yet, which is too bad. I’m late to writing a note for it too. But it’s a pu-erh so it can only taste better with age, right? I used about 2/3 of a sample pouch, so probably around 6-7 grams. (Teavivre suggests 5 grams for 12 ounces.) The leaves have a lot of gold to them and a fantastic rich scent. The flavor has depth to it as well, while still having a sweet smooth quality (and NONE of those unlovely pu-erh flavors or fragrances either). On first sip, it reminds me a little of a sticky rice pu-erh, but that disappears further down the mug. Interestingly enough, looking up the tea’s description, Teavivre also mentions a sticky rice aroma. Awesome, I’m glad we agree. The second steep is also deep and delicious. The third steep is a little weaker in flavor, even though I steeped it at boiling for seven minutes. Definitely not like the dark and murky cups of the other steeps. I think I’m finding I really like pu-erh that is around ten years old (this is 2009). This is certainly a lovely enough pu-erh for a decent price! The sample is certainly worth a try.
Steep #1 // 6-7 grams for a full mug// 10 minutes after boiling // rinse // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // few minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #3 // just boiled // 7 minute steep
