From The Essence of Tea

2003 Purple Peacock Brick Raw 250g
The tea is of a very high quality – it’s concentrated in the mouth, full and rich. From tasting, it appears to have a decent amount of old tree leaves in the blend, has nice qi and lingers on and on in the mouth and throat.
Like the other teas in our Peacock range, it’s a tea that we thought was exceptionally good value & of a quality that far exceeds its price.
We found this brick in the storage of an old tea merchant in Malaysia. It’s been stored by them since 2003 & is a gem that appears to have gone unnoticed amidst a sea of mediocre teas.

From one of the Puer TTB

This one is sold out now, but was a pretty decent price for age. The notes are pretty nice, a good chugging. Nice mineral notes, bit of camphor, with a nice apricot fragrance. Slightly dry feeling.

I got quite a few infusions, say 12 or 15.

From the PU TTB: I much prefer this one to the Green Peacock. Soft, with a hint of sweetness. No musty old basement to this one, which suggests it’s been well stored. And the mouthfeel is absolutely smooth/creamy/lovely. I’m eight steeps in and feeling a wonderful relaxing qi, and so far not much in the way of bitterness. This sheng is right in my aged sheng wheelhouse and I am gutted it’s sold out :-(

Pu’erh TTB 2015 Tea #3

After drinking the Green Peacock yesterday this just seemed to be the next one for me to try. The first thing that is easily noticed is that it is much darker, though I am not intending to compare the two as they are different but that is what I will do. The mouth feel isn’t as smooth or lingering as the Green Peacock which is one of my favorite parts about pu’erh. This is a tea that the first six steeps did not appeal much to me because the slight bitterness needed to be pulled out and the deep taste of sheng was a bit stronger than I like. For those who like a stronger sheng this would be a great option, but people like me who want a cotton candy that has been fermented and looks like leaf this is not that.

Another EoT sample from the TTB – Round 3. This tea was pretty simple so this wont be a long flowery review. Sweet and fruity, decently thick ( thicker than the green peacock). Durability was pretty good, session wasn’t all that dynamic but honestly wasn’t expecting fireworks here. This is something for the price that I’d buy a couple of brick of as a tasty cheap daily drinker type. Falls right in line with a couple of other teas I’ve had in this price range and would love to have it in my rotation and I can see why it sold out so fast. Hoping this comes back up for sale soon.
