From Red Blossom Tea Company

Acquired directly from Kunming, Yunnan in 1998, our 1996 Shou Pu-erh reminds us most of the type of pu-erhs we grew up with – rich, but not overwhelmingly malty and heavy. This noticeably “dry” character is the result of its storage – save for its initial accelerated fermentation processing, the tea has been stored in a low humidity environment, first in Kunming where the tea was produced, and then at our warehouse in San Francisco.

A dry, mild shou pu-erh. Sweet and clean. Hint of malt, earth and cocoa bean.

Not much of a pu-erh drinker, really, but trying to learn more. This is only the second real pu-erh that I’ve owned (the last one being a Grand Shou, I think from McNabs). This one seems surprisingly light and creamy, very low on tanins – a nice taste, though I think perhaps I’d prefer something more robust. Wildly dark liquor, though.

I’ve gone through a couple of Red Blossom Tea Company’s pu-erh. All have been lovely.
