From Yunnan Sourcing

Liming Tea Factory is located in Menghai and specializes in both ripe and raw pu-erhs composed of local Menghai area tea leaves. Golden Peacock is a tippy blend of Spring 2007 tea leaves that was stored in Guangdong since 2007. The blend is tippier than Da Yi’s 7532, and looks more like Xiaguan’s 8613.

The tea has been stored in Guangdong in relatively dry conditions, but is a “wet stored” pu-erh. The tea brews up a gold orange tea soup with a strong floral aroma. This tea is very pungent and very sweet. The bitterness and astringency is not strong at all, having been transformed into something thick, creamy, floral and sweet. Very nice overall mouth-feel and cha qi.

This tea puts a smile on my face from the first sip, it’s energetic while being very relaxing with a strong feeling of well being. If I’ve had a rough day and need help calming down this tea works wonders. I bought a cake and will be buying again.

I’m not really familiar with the wide variety of shengs available, but this seems very middle of the road. For a moderately aged tea, you could do a lot worse but also a lot better. It would make a good daily drinker and that’s how I’m drinking it. 5g in a 16oz ingentuitea hitting it with boiling water and just waiting until it looks right. for my notes on taste I did a session with 5g in a 90ml gaiwan.

Early on it’s a bit smokey, but not too strong. More of the petroleum than wood smoke. There is a very distinct saccharine sweetness coming from this, but it balances the bitterness really well. There is still a lot of green to this despite being a decade old and you get a cooked kale flavor from the body that also brings up ideas of tobacco and wet wood pulp. There are some of the classic stonefruit flavors there in the background, but the texture really distracts me away from it. It started out nice and silky but has transitioned to being a bit drying, which is really where I back out.

All around not bad, but I won’t be buying a cake.

very easy to make this tea very bitter and overly astringent, requires some attention within the first few steeps but if you do you are presented with very nice returning sweetness.

There are definite hints of fruit and later on the brew becomes much smoother and can surprise you with its flavor especially in the first brews.

I would be happy to try this again i enjoyed this as one of the first puerhs i have ever tried, definitely not the best there is but there is not much you can go wrong with on this one.

So I wanted to push myself to do these reviews because I want to force myself to be more objective about tea. I’ve been drinking for years and mainly I just chug, and find that when I talk to people I’m either like “I like this” or not but can’t say why. So anyways. I like this tea and I can’t say why, because every time I have it I just end up chugging it. It’s got a little bitterness which feels very “concentrated” somehow, but like I said I didn’t stop to think about why. Otherwise is sweet but not overpowering and not too floral. It has good thick mouthfeel. For some reason the energy it gives feels very “concentrated” also: didn’t give me jitters or make me feel teadrunk, but made me feel like I was going somewhere. Very affordable. 4 sessions so far.
