From Verdant Tea

From the Verdant Tea website: This tea was pressed the first spring after Longyuanhao was founded, using organically cultivated big leaf varietal tea, and wrapped and aged in bamboo leaf. The clean crisp texture and deep forest aroma of this tea reflect the high aspirations of Li Zhengxing when he founded his workshop to blend some of the best pu’er out there. Wang Yanxin started working with Longyuanhao when they were just getting started and stored a cache of just over 100 of these bricks that she is sharing with us.

This is an odd tea. I bought some because I wanted to try a more spicy pu-erh, with cinnamon overtones, and this one had secondary flavor notes of maple, and old books. I feel like this tea should be called “Old Books”, It tastes like a used book store. It’s not the least pleasant thing I have ever tasted, more along the line of a savory dessert, so seemingly out of character that it is hard to take it for what it is. The agedness of this tea is maybe just a bit much for me, though I would definitely not call it bad, because I have had bad tea, and this is not it. I definitely get the maple overtones which are pleasant, though I tried one infusion with a tiny bit of sweetener to bring out the maple and nuttiness, and I strongly recommend NOT doing this, it is not pleasant. The radish was definitely there too, but I did not get any of the spicy overtones. I won’t buy this tea again, but I wouldn’t discourage those who appreciate these qualities from doing so.
