From Cloudwalker Teas

Rainbow is a particularly fine 40 year old vintage pu erh, the oldest we currently have available at Cloudwalker. The hui gan is smooth and thick almost attaining a quality of ‘glueyness’. This is is a high grade, very rare tea, the drinking of which is a meditation unto itself. Its aroma is that of the earth melded with muted floral tones. It is clean, clear and crisp. Its chi is at once light, fine, boistrous and uplifting. This tea is smooth, broad, crisp and nicely detailed. Its fine, somewhat hot yang chi is conspicuous and yet refined.

These fine qualities and others make it a fitting example of what tea connoisseurs call gao dang (or high level) tea. As Master He would say “it is only available to the experts.” We have decided to make this particularly special tea more widely available as well, because although the price is dear, it is worth every penny.

Good grief. This tea is smoooooooth. If you’re into pu erh, which I am, this is surely one of the best sheng, aged, wet-stored pu erh I’ve had. The liquor is smooth on the palate, leaving a lasting hui gan (returning sweetness in the back of the throat); it is almost sweet forward on the tongue, but with that infamous hint of dark forest floor. The aroma hints at the flavour, but with a just detectable foreign spice. Upon smelling the first cup I was immediately hit with the chi of this tea and sounds of the world faded away as I drifted deeper into meditation with each sip.
