2006 Jinggu Ripe Dragon Egg Pu-erh Tea (景谷龙蛋熟茶)

It’s not something you can just get it anywhere but here, our best procurement in 2013 Spring.

Almost flawless, it’s absolutely the best ripe tea from Jinggu area, pure, sweet, smooth and round. Talking about the throat feel after drinking this tea, it’s amazingly comfortable.

This is a high quality ripe pu-erh tea made by using early spring ancient tree materials from Jinggu. It brews a superb nice tea, very impressive, good even for a person whom never heard of Pu-rh tea. I am running out the admiration words for this tea.

From my puerhshop.com order! Another one where I thought tuochas were just mini tuochas. Instead of many tiny dragon eggs that I expected, I get a big ole egg that fits in your palm. It IS called a dragon egg… not quail eggs. haha. I already have it broken into pieces and in pouches. I didn’t want a mess later on, even though I’m probably going to realize one day that is the completely incorrect way to store pu-erh. I used quite a bit of leaves, probably too much, as the flavor did have a hint of astringency I’m not accustomed to tasting with any pu-erh. At the same time, even with a ton of leaves, there didn’t seem to be a depth of flavor there. The color of the cup wasn’t so dark you can’t see through it like most pu-erh. It was a medium red color with all of the cups. With all three steeps, what flavor that was there never wavered, the flavor just isn’t what I’m looking for though. Less astringency, more depth please!

Yep, I know the difference between tuochas and mini tuochas. :D

I think this is the lightest shu I’ve ever tried. It is very smooth, no earthiness, just a light flavor. Good quality, I do like it. It’s different, and interesting!
