From Puerh Shop

This tea cake is made by using early Spring arbor materials from Dazhai, Jingmai area. It’s one of the best Jingmai teas.

Jingmai tea features smaller tea leaves, honey sweet fragrance, and nice overall taste.

You can taste the difference now and in the furture when the tea is aged. It offers better taste profile, higher nutritional value with no chemical additive, the big tree/Qiaomu/Arbor material IS the essence of a premium tea. The traditional tried and true processing method was adopted in making of these MGH teas.

Drank this today while reading the timeline of Star Trek and now I feel dumb… then again it’s confusing. Enterprise is the earliest of them all but it was made last, why why why!
Anyways, this is a solid tea that has no bitter notes to it and a strong taste of what raw sheng is like when pure and untampered with by elements such as age, humidity, traveling, random hairs stuck in the cake, fast food oil from fingers when it was broken, and anything else.

That being said: All jingmai material I’ve had has been excellent and pure. This is true for this as well, even if I support what Glen is doing and say with a bias; CLT has that good good jingmai.

Here’s a reason to buy this: It’s a 2013 Jingmai cake at only $19 for 200g. I’m being serious when I say that’s a good deal.

Shade

Hot damn, that sounds like a tasty deal! Now if only Puerh Shop’s shipping to Canada wasn’t so painful.

Le sigh.

Liquid Proust

I can probably reship it cheaper… some parts of Canada I ship 7oz for $4 through USPS, but other area vary

Shade

Not too shabby. Puerh Shop’s flat rate for me is $32.75 and that’s not even Express International – ouch!

Liquid Proust

$32 shipped or $32 shipping?

Shade

That’s $32 for just shipping. If that where shipped, no problemo.

Liquid Proust

LMAO, get out of here… They are right in Michigan too, come on now. Let me know if you ever need something state side and I can check shipping for you because shipping 7oz or under to Canada is $4 to $9, over 7oz goes a bit higher though

Shade

Michigan? Seriously? That’s so messed up. O_O

I’ll certainly keep you posted, thank you! I’ve been eyeing Puerh Shop’s stuff for a while now, but with outrageous shipping like that, it just wasn’t gonna happen.

Rui A.

Just when I was considering to buy two Jingmai cakes from them. Shipping to UK must be horribly expensive.

Liquid Proust

I’ve sent stuff to you in the UK for like $9 before. I don’t get why companies charge so much.

To make a quick buck?

Okay, it’s time for me to stop being in dragon mode (hoarding it all to myself) and review this. I didn’t want to hype it too much b/c I hadn’t had the funds to order my fill yet, but I just placed an order for the rest that I foresee myself purchasing, so here goes.

Oh boy! This tea has interesting written all over it. I was first drawn to the packaging, as I love the stag artwork on the wrapping. After reading the description from PuerhShop and the other review here on Steepster I knew I should give it a try, so I ordered a sample.

The first sniffs of the dry leaves in a warm gaiwan are wonderful. It has a really soft fragrance with the scent of flowers and fruits. I’m getting hints of magnolia, and maybe some cherry, plum, or nectarine. Definitely a stone fruit scent.

The scent of the wet leaves is more complex and hard to describe. It’s predominantly nutty and vegetal, but with a nice fruity tanginess in the background. It reminds me of really high quality green teas from china. Maybe a Bi Luo Chun. There is also a subtle floral aroma if you inhale deeply. This is lovely.

I gave the rinse a little taste. Even just sipping that there is a lingering floral taste in my mouth. Wow. I’m not going to describe the other flavors of it. I’ll do the first infusion first.
Something about the scent of the brewed tea makes me incredibly nostalgic. It smells very perfumed and flowery. the taste is more vegetal, buttery, and nutty, with green bean notes, but the lingering floral taste and aroma is what sets this Puer apart from others of its kind for me. I can definitely agree with the other reviewer here who said it reminds them of oolong tea. I can tell it is sheng puer from a mile away, but it definitely has a lot in common with oolong in its floral and green notes.

In the second infusion, the tea has become a bit more buttery and nutty. It still has a bright vegetal and floral note, but it is not as powerful as before. It is very prominent on the nose still, however.

The third infusion is a little more sweet and floral. Less of the vegetal, nutty. Still pretty buttery and smooth. I should mention that this tea has zero bitterness and is a really great raw puer. Very warming qi.

If you go with this tea for about 7 to 8 infusions or more, it starts to mellow out substantially, and any hints of young puer bitterness it might have fade away. The predominant flavor is of honey and flowers. The taste and fragrance are something sort of like orange blossom water. It just goes on and on this way for many infusions. It’s so gentle and lovely, I can only imagine how great this tea will be in a couple decades.

I’m buying a handful of cakes of this to age… the first tea I’ve done that with! I have seasoned one of Master Weilong’s one of a kind unglazed interior gongfu teapots with this tea. It smells so nice inside now. This is a tea I’ll be taking with me for the long haul.

That tea sounds amazing! Is it expensive?

Lion

Not at all. It’s currently $19 for a 200g cake. I forgot to mention the cake is so floral fragrant you can easily smell it through the box it comes in. It is nice. Since this is the first really nice affordable raw puer cake I liked I am using it as one that I will try periodically over the years to help me learn how aging affects it. I got four cakes .

Lion

They also have samples of it for anyone who might want to try it without buying a whole cake.

Ubacat

Thanks. I took a look and their prices are great. Can’t beat $19 for a 200 g cake! Their shipping is high to Canada though. I’ll give it some thought. I’m sure the shipping is worth it when ordering a few things at a time (like Yunnan Sourcing). I tried just adding things to my cart to see if the price would escalate when the order goes up but it didn’t.

Lion

They do have a flat rate shipping option. It’s like $9 USD, which is not cheap, but good for a larger order. It did suck paying for shipping when I was ordering samples from them.

Lion

The good thing is their samples are like 21g so you get a good amount to play with.

BookLion

Dragon Mode! Love it – have never heard this phrase before and am definitely stealing it. What would a lion mode be, I wonder?

Lion

Lion mode for me is when I’m overly exuberant and excited to have something, so much that I just drink as much tea as I want, as often as I want, with no regard for preserving any for the future. This often happens when I’m just strongly craving a tea for many days at a time, or I’m eager to try many different brewing methods for one tea. It’s kind of like when lions sometimes eat up to 25% of their body weight when they complete a hunt, since at times when food is scarce they may not eat again for a couple weeks. You gotta do it while the bounty is fresh and at its best, so it happens most often for me with green teas. Haha.
I think I default to dragon mode most times though. Lion mode is the enemy of my tea stock. :9

BookLion

Ha! Lion mode sounds fun. Like you, I think I default to dragon mode, but I am now committed to lioning over some tea soon.

Now this is a really interesting tea. I am working through a set of samples from Puerhshop.com and I’ve been steeping through them. Some I have to go back to, but this one really turned my head.

I took the first sip and thought I must be drinking an oolong! This has a much different flavor profile from many young shengs. Instead of apricots and smoke, I got more floral notes. It didn’t just remind me of an oolong, it quite literally tastes oolongy.

If cakes of this remain when I order again, I’ll probably grab one. Good stuff!

Ooooh, that sounds like one I gotta have. Added to my wishlist!

Cwyn

Somebody’s blog had an oolong tea cake recently, can’t remember where I saw it though.

TeaBrat

Red Blossom has a Shui Xian cake, I’ve never tried it though: http://www.redblossomtea.com/tea/oolong/shui-xian-cake-2012.html

SarsyPie

Thanks, y’all! I’ll be on the lookout for more like this. I wonder how well it will age and still retain the floral notes.
