From The Jasmine Pearl Tea Company

2008 Vintage. This tea has a nice body and smoothness to it. It’s mild earthiness is followed by a sweetness held up by subtle notes of chocolate and honey.

This is a shou (Mandarin for “cooked” or “ripe”) Puerh, meaning that the aging process has been simulated by fermenting sun-dried leaves during the production of the tea. This yields tea with much of the smoothness and character of a naturally aged Puerh, but without the 15-50 year delay.

Tea of the afternoon here. I decided to have kung pao tofu for lunch in the hopes that spicy food would help to knock out the cold that I have. Lunch was great and I decided to come back home and try this sample tea I got from the Jasmine Pearl.

I’m not rating this today since I’m so congested but it does have a wonderful roasted fruity aroma which was the first thing I noticed about it. The tea flavor itself seems to be chocolatey with some roasted barley notes and a slight bittersweetness in the finish. Of course I can’t really write a proper tasting note today.

I was really into puerh teas for the two winters prior but I haven’t been drinking much of it lately, maybe that will start to change soon. I wonder if any of my puerhs are aging well and how the climate in my apartment is helping out (or not). I have steam heat and it can get pretty humid in here. Anyway this seems like a really nice shu and the 5 oz. cake is only $17. Might have to pick some of this up in the future.
