From white2tea

Lumber Slut was pressed in 2021. The return of our heralded woody blend from 2017.

Blended to favor the dense flavors of petrichor and wood, this style of ripe Puer is focused on unfolding as an experience with notes of camphor and lower umber toned tastes. Will benefit from further aging, but if you’re down for what this tea is offering, we suspect you can drink it straight away without flinching.

Each cake is 200 grams of tea.

A clean shou! I got this sample from my recent w2t order, and this tea really is an easy drinker. Beautiful leaves and liquor with a nice, complex aroma. Smooth and clean texture with a longevity that makes this tea last 15-20+ steeps. The flavour is clean and decent, but lacks complexity and nuance. This tea needs some work in the finish & aftertaste department, as well as the cha-qi department too. Overall, a really solid daily drinker especially at that price. A worth it tea.

It is probably a good thing I am not a pu er connoisseur. I’d need a room simply for displaying the wrappers. I might have to start. Oh, gosh. I don’t have proper storage. Stop that before it starts. But it’s difficult. This is a wonderful tea. Many unique notes. Much pu er. So wow. Noodles. Woody. Plywood. Cedar. Noodle water. I really like noodles so I quite enjoy this one. Turning to dark woods. Mahogony. Sticky rice leaves. The longer you steep it, as with pretty much every other Camellia Sinensis, the more the astringency unfolds. Mossy, decaying bark, big log.

Smooth mouth feel. No astringency.

Finish is woody with a feeling of the tongue stuck to the roof of the mouth.

Liquor color starts a clear, dark amber, changes to rosewood, and really thickens intensely to a final opaque umber.

Oh, my word that aroma. I love the smell of old houses. Not like grandma’s house but seriously old houses built from blood, sweat, and tears. Timber, earth, and some type of natural adhesive. Wow.

Geek Steep S2E15 – Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring

Gongfu!

Guys, I didn’t over think my pairing for this week’s fandom. As we talked in depth this episode, I truly believe that pretty much any tea you can possibly think of would be a good pairing for this fandom. It’s so big with so many different elements to it to connect a tea to and they all feel important and have their space to breath.

So, I grabbed a shou to gongfu and just dived right in. It works so well. Just beautifully earthy and robust in a way that feels like it’s speaking to either the deep mines and underground where the dwarves make their home or the magical forests that show up throughout. I had a great time steeping this tea while watching the movie – it’s honestly pretty perfect!
