Had this one for a while and have about a third of a cake left. I was expecting much more from this tea to be honest. It is a very earthy tea with some very light juicy notes but is not very complex and other than the earthy notes of an alright ripe puerh not much else.

I have brewed this a variety of ways but I think the best I have dialled in are a 10 sec rinse with boiling water. Then 20s first steep +5s each steep after. Starts earthy moving to more mineral notes after about 5 steeps in my case.

I will keep trying this and if there are any changes I will update. It is an ok puerh which is good for the price as it is fairly cheap. The again it is a smaller cake which brings up the overall cost per gram.

I did 2 rinses and 9 steeps of 10 seconds and I added 3 seconds each steep. I used a Juanshui clay teapot of 200ml during this tasting.

Before rinse

Before the rinse, I got some earthy chestnut notes followed by a slight burnt aroma.

After rinse

I got more or less the same aromas but I also got a very light citrus smell after the second rinse.

Steeping

In general, I can say that all steeps had one thing in common: there was a combination between warm notes on the one hand, and a sharp taste on the other hand. What it is exactly difficult to describe and that is why it is such an interesting tea to drink.

1st steep: during this steep, there were no exceptional and intense flavours. There was a slight earthy and blackcurrant taste. It was earthy from the start and then gradually changed into more blackcurrant notes. There was no bitter and / or astringent aftertaste. Drinking this tea gave a very pleasant feeling in the mouth.

2nd steep: still a bit earthy but a bit less than the first steep. Some blackcurrant notes in the middle and these died out slowly towards the end. In the end, it gets bitter and that is why this steep is a bit too intense for me. On the website, it says this tea is not bitter but I experienced some bitter notes.

3rd steep: This one is really difficult to describe. I got some warm notes in combination with very sharp notes. This steep is not as intense as the previous one and tastes a lot better. In addition, the aftertaste is a lot less bitter.

4th steep: some slight burnt notes in combination with blackcurrant. The aftertaste is even less bitter than steep 3. Really enjoyable to drink.

5th steep: this steep is not as intense as the previous ones. No burnt and earthy notes and also no bitter aftertaste. This is a really enjoyable steep to drink.

6th steep: very light flavours during this steep. Some slight earthy notes in combination with a very light citrus flavour. The citrus flavour is only barely noticeable.

7th steep: This steep is more or less the same as the previous one. Light earthy flavour in combination with some citrus notes. These notes are very light and barely noticeable.

8th steep: very light earthy tones in combination with some sharp lime, citrus notes. This is a really nice steep to drink. Pleasant feeling and taste. `

9th steep: no earthy flavour. Only some very light citrus notes. This creates a clear and fresh taste.

As I have said before, this tea is a tea of extremes. It’s the combination of two opposites: warm notes and sharp, fresh notes. I did not fully experience this combination during the earlier steeps but once I noticed it, the game was on. For me, this is one of the main reasons this tea is really enjoyable to drink. It’s difficult to describe but once you have tasted this tea, you know exactly what I mean.
