From Yunnan Craft

Spring harvest from small arbor tea trees growing on Wuliang mountain medium hard pressed into the 357g cake. There is no any significant front sweetness or buzzing “sheng jing” but if you are an experienced pu-erh tea drinker you will taste the throat sweet “hui gan” sensation behind the light smokey notes. It’s a very suitable tea for long time storage.

Haha. This has to be the most forgettable sheng puerh I’ve ever had. Sandpapery young astringency fades away within several steeps. What’s left is a mostly flavorless, lightly vegetal-honey bitter cup with a whisper of cooling throatfeel.

The only aspect that stands out to me is the returning sweetness and even then it’s like “Whatever.”

Time for a lazy experiment. No control, no reproducibility. The rest of the sample I’ll leave sealed in its bag. The bag will be placed in a compartment in my truck to avoid direct sunlight. It will be exposed to higher temperatures and greater fluctuations than the relatively stable 65-70F, non-air-conditioned storage of my bedroom closet. I will forget about it all summer and probably find it when I clean out my truck sometime in November, at which point I’ll go, “Huh. I wonder how long this has been here. Let’s have a brew.” Or maybe I’ll forget about it all winter. Maybe whoever buys my truck in the future will find it.

What does the proposed treatment hold for such a vapid tea?

Better forgettable than plain bad :)

Given a similar treatment of time, vapid people tend to mature and develop in surprising ways. To clarify though, I do not recommend locking someone in the trunk of your car all summer! HA.

tea-sipper

haha. Truck aging.

So Keta, so true.
tea-sipper: that made me chuckle. I feel like my roots are showing.

I once had a sampler from one of Liquid Proust’s “introductions to puerh” hauls that simply said “cheap” on the package, with no other indications of what it was. It was the most foul tasting tea I had ever had. Now I sort of wish I had thought of something like this… instead I stuck it in a home-made advent calendar for my friend Todd and re-labeled it as “Coal”.

tea-sipper

haha. Perfect! Cheap coal.

I found the pouch in my truck the other day after enduring a wicked hot summer (some days in the mid 110s F) and the winter which didn’t often get below freezing. It smells glorious. I’ll have to try it soon.

I can hardly wait!
