From Yunnan Sourcing

A lovely 9 year old ripe pu-erh tea aged in hot and humid Xishuangbanna! Made from Menghai area fermented tea this tea was fermented for 46 days in Menghai town and then aged for 9 years!

Smooth, sweet, and camphor wood taste with a clear burgundy-brown tea soup. The tea has matured enough that there isn’t even a trace of fermentation fishiness that is present in much younger teas!

I just got done finishing off the last bit of this cake, I for sure really enjoyed it as I drank through it at a pretty good pace. I really enjoy this one because its a lot different than the other shou pu’erh I have. This one has more of a camphour, wet and woody flavors that really stand out. It always has a very nice clean taste and can be steeped quite a few times.

Would recommend this one to anyone looking for something a bit different in a shou pu’erh.

This tea has almost zero fermentation flavor. Its got a nice camphor wood flavor that improves as you resteep the tea. There is also another flavor that I did not like so much, sour in the early steeps then changing to something else. I don’t know how to describe this flavor I found undesirable. Overall this is not a bad tea, just not my favorite.

I steeped this ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. I think it would have gone five more steeps.

Got back from a special treat which was dinner at the Thai restaurant tonight. I had lemongrass tofu and mango sticky rice for dessert. The mango sticky rice was full of coconut milk and it was sooo good. I was very happy with the meal!

I thought I would have this shu puerh as my after dinner drink. On the whole, I am not terribly impressed with this one. Even when the color is quite dark it is lacking a bit in flavor and just seems to be a bit muddy with camphor. Nothing special in my opinion.

The leaves are dark brown/red with a few golden tips present. Also the leaves look small yet mostly full or at least half the leaf intact. It has a damp, earth scent with notes of wood, must and soil.

First Steep – 30 seconds

Colour is dark red with a musty and damp wood scent. Flavour is gentle with soft wood, smoke and damp earth notes. No astringency to speak of.

Second Steep – 40 seconds

The colours is now dark, similar to soy sauce. Flavour is smooth with a musty soil after taste that is gentle. A little damp tasting too.

Third Steep – 45 seconds

Flavour is still soft with damp soil, smoke, wood, musk and brown sugar notes. As it lightens towards the after taste it sweetens.

Fourth Steep – 55 seconds

Down to burnt orange in colour. This steep is more wooden and damp than musty, though the soft sweetness persists.

Fifth Steep – 1 minute

More soil in this steep though still soft and with no bitterness. Very clean and natural tasting. Slight dryness in the after taste.

Sixth Steep – 1 minute 20 seconds

Very light, all I can really taste is damp soil with a soft, sweet finish.

Seventh Steep – 2 minutes

Still consistent damp soil though no longer sweet.

Eighth Steep – 3 minutes

Softer than ever though still a faint soil flavour.

The thing that strikes me the most about this Shou is how subtle it is in flavour. The ageing has smoothed it to a nice place but personally for me this is too subtle. It has some characteristics that while still pleasant is nothing above basic.
