From Hidden Peak Teahouse

Sweet & clear, perfectly-balanced, with a beautiful lingering after-taste, and crystal clear broth. Our quality benchmark.

Unblended Brick was crafted down to the finest micro-detail to represent the first Kunming Factory breakthrough shou pu-erh from 1975 coded 7581. This tea not only follows the same lines of production, but it puts into play 30 years of experimentation and refinement expressing the maturity of what the process has become.

It is the alpha and the omega. It is the un-carved block. It is perfection!

Desperately needed a real weekend but had too much work to do, so I just squeezed in an hour or so at the teahouse for a quick escape and reading break. I try to make a point to try something different when I go, and this was the pick this trip.

It’s a really wonderful tea. Clean and sweet, super-drinkable with nothing that might turn you away. I guess there was sort of a date thing going on, but mostly just brown sugar sweetness. Uncomplicated but not boring, which made it a good tea to sip while reading a somewhat attention-demanding book. Admittedly the very soothing teahouse atmosphere tends to amplify the effects of anything consumed there, but definitely felt more energized/calm (and not slightly spacey like sometimes happens to me with too much tea in too little time) when I left than when I arrived. It’s the kind of thing I wish I had for late night creative endeavors, or long days reading.

A small bag of this might have followed me home. So much for not buying more tea this month.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Dates

I don’t like shou and I’ve tried a bunch. Actually I find it to taste boring and one dimensional but the best cha qi I ever got was from the first shou I had. Well, this is fantastic.

Dry leaf smell is leather and dirt. Wet smell is compost, wood and something alluring but faint (I think melon). I just know it smells great. I don’t have a problem with the “dirtiness” of shou but this one is so dang clean.

Taste is clean, creamy, dates, melon with a very noticeable lasting cooling.

Energy is strong but very relaxing at the same time. Perfect for nature and meditation.

I really can’t express enough how fantastic this is…I rush back to the gaiwan

This tea is a fantastically balanced pu-erh, with powerful and clean energy. I drink this regularly, and I would say it’s my favorite shou pu-erh by a fair margin. If you’re in the U.S. and you haven’t any of these teas from Hidden Peak, there’s a good chance you don’t know how good pu-erh can actually be.
