Not even a hint of pickle … not that I would have expected that except for a reviewer’s comments. This is the largest 250gm cake I’ve ever seen. Very thick cake. Just brewed up 7gm in small yixing gaiwan… about 100gm of water or less, 15 seconds. It’s dark red in color, very smooth but much more savory than sweet. A bit of spice around the edges. I then brewed the next steep in about 10-12 oz of water for about 30 seconds. Very dark, opaque, smooth and soothing but without any particular distinctive flavor sticking out. My experience with shou of this age is that it takes time for the cake to air out and sometimes the flavors open up a bit in subsequent sessions as more of the cake is picked apart. I wouldn’t recommend or not recommend this one. I’ll enjoy this cake but won’t replace it. Would like to try it after a heavy meal. I can picture it as a soothing end to a fine meal.

- what I left out yesterday, this tea has a lot of staying power. I was right – perfect after a heavy meal, also fine right before bed, did not keep me awake… and still going strong the next morning and even better than yesterday’s brews – more distinct spice, a bit of vanilla and even a little “oily”

Rich gave me a sample of this and either he was trolling, something went wrong with the sample, or this tea is not meant to be drank.
I brewed this for 10 second with 100c and it taste like someone strained a pickle in maybe a drop of puer. One of the most sour drinks I have drank before and it is not appealing at all. There is no way I can finish drinking this or provide a positive remark unless you’re making candy with this somehow.

Rich

That is crazy. This is one of my favorite ripes. Something must have gone wrong, I will have to try this again.

Liquid Proust

Next time you drink it let me know. I was in Slack teachat and typed my feelings out as I sipped it… this review is 100% accurate to what I tasted. Maybe you like sour things and don’t notice it?

Rich

No way. I just tried this again and it was delicious. No sourness at all. I picked it right off the same cake. Not sure what happened either in the sample bag or in your cup. But seeing as I just recently packed this into a brand new sample bag I have no idea why you had this experience. Could it have been your vessel or the water?

Liquid Proust

Dang, that’s really odd. I always use fresh water and a clean cup. I brewed it in the pot I use for Dianhong and shou. I’m baffled then. It really had a pickle taste to it and I couldn’t even sip at it. Unsolved mysteries of my tea journey….

AllanK

There is another possibility that you may not have considered. For any number of reasons a person’s taste buds can be just off. One time I had a cut in my mouth and all my tea tasted terrible for a week.

Rasseru

What you ate before can have an effect

Liquid Proust

Well…. Its only 24hours old and it’s in my clay pot that I covered. Going to hit it with 90c for 30 seconds for a strong rinse and try again…

Rasseru

can there be non-uniform flavour across a cake?

Liquid Proust

I can only report what I taste and for me this is sour like a pickle. Tried it again in another cup and the same result. Who know what happened… The pot I used is only for shou and Dianhong… Shouldn’t be an issue. 100c yesterday and 90c today. Unsolved mystery still

Rasseru

lol, his review is a year old, maybe it pickled itself in that time :D

Rich

I tried a fresh batch this morning as per my comment above. This is a mystery.

This is one of the top ripes I’ve tasted from Puershop. It started off a little bitter, but that faded and it became quite smooth. It has a velvety thick texture and very good flavor. Moderately earthy and dark, but not too much. Kind of safe tasting and a pleasure to drink. As is typical with ripes from Puershop, it is very reasonably priced.
