A very fine crop containing an abundance of tender leaf buds. Pu-Erh Imperial’s powerful flavor is clean and harmonious with a very supple finish. We loved this tea as a great example of pu-erh, perfect for those new to this style and seasoned pu-erh drinkers alike.

I had it actaully in muslin sachet.

One steep only, 4 minutes long.
Yesterday was kind of crazy day. I had two exams (hard ones), and I passed both. I was drinking beer in the evening with friends – I did not had much (usually I have more) and it just went not good.

So, I took some strong taste tea and as I was lazy to make gong-fu, I decided for pu-erh from tea bag. I am rather sceptical, I never was friend of pu-erh (that changed) esepcially when in tea bags.

But this tea is actually really good. Very woody, but still very mild. It not very complex, though. But for tea bag it is good one.

This tasting note is not very long, I know. But I just do not feel writing in English today so much. Or at least, this morning.

Hooray on your exams! Puerh was probably a good choice, especially if the beer was not sitting well with your tummy. It is used for both digestive issues and hangovers in China, although it sounds like you did not have enough beer to cause a hangover. Perhaps you were a little dehydrated and that is why the beer did not sit well. Hope you are feeling better!

Ashmanra: Thank you, you are probably completely right. I was probably bit dehydrated and beer did not sit well. And tea certainly helped.

A surprisingly mild Pu-erh, with a hint of sweetness in later steeps. Initially very woody and earthy. A nice tea for those new to Pu-erh, and for those who enjoy medium complexity.

free sample from my order. I was looking forward to trying this one to see whether it stodd up to some of my other shou favourites. I have to say, i’m sort of glad that it didn’t. While it was a pleasant enough shou, it was pretty middle of the road and generally average. on the earthy woody side and smooth enough in it’s finish. nothing to write home about.

Dry leaf smells so woody and soil-like. I am not a big fan of shou :( so this is not to my taste.
The liquor is fairly clear and it’s pretty smooth. If I was ever going to drink shou, this would be pretty good for that type of tea. It is just a type that I really don’t care for so I am not a good judge of it.
It tastes like sweet wood growing out of the ground.
