2009 Nan Jian “Phoenix Aroma 704” Raw Pu-erh tea cake

Classic Nan Jian production! A blend of Lincang and Wu Liang area tea leaves with an emphasis on creating a pungent experience both in aroma and taste. This cake is a blend of spring 2009 material and pressed into a lovely flat edged “coin” style cake.

Aged 6+ years in Guangdong province has given this cake lightly aged feeling to it. Smooth and thick with a kind of rock sugar sweetness after-taste makes this an incredible value!

Sample generously given/swapped by Kirkoneill1988. Thank you again!

Slowly but surely, I’m working through this tea. I have one more assignment to do, and then I’ll graduate with my Early Ed. certification on May 22nd. However, I have to add an extra year to become an “official” Middle Grades Ed. English/Social Studies educator, so I won’t be completely done, yet (but the school with still hand me the certificate so that I can get a teaching job). It is exciting to be nearly finished, and closer to teaching the grade level that I want…It has been a long journey, that has had plenty of unexpected turns and twists, and led to some pretty heavy bank loan debt; however, it has worked out O.K. thus far!

Now, for the tea. It is pretty unique. I enjoy unique teas. In fact, I often go out of the way to acquire them….Or swap for them….

Anyway, the first steep offered a nice sweet honey, slight tobacco, and mineral flavor. The second steep changed a lot—the honey seemed to have left the tea—there was a loose cut pipe tobacco (English Luxury) flavor instead (which was my tobacco of choice when I was 21). Fortunately, I’ve given that up.

I digress.

The fourth steep offered an astringency that I often enjoy in Raw pu-erh, still had a touch of tobacco on the tongue, and the honey flavor had returned. Very dry mouth-feel, but pleasant. Overall, a great cup. Maybe not the cup I’d choose often, but still pleasing.

Flavors: Astringent, Floral, Honey, Mineral, Tobacco


Congrats on your soon-to-be achievement!


Thank you! :)


My father was a high school teacher, my best friend is a special education teacher, and I homeschooled for 25 years. You will have such opportunities to enrich lives, excite minds, and even patch broken hearts. Kudos, and thank you for caring about education.


glad you liked it :D
