From JK Tea Shop

Bamboo raw Pu Er tea is made from the Naka pure old tree Autumn Maocha in Sep, 2011; Supervised by JK tea expert in Menghai, plus strictly followed the traditional Bamboo Pu Er tea making process; this tea enjoys very thick taste with strong Naka Chaqi;

Carefully-selected the fragrant bamboo growing in Mengsong mountain, Menghai, this special fragrant bamboo, after burning the bamboo on the fire to get its fragrant & juice out, in the meantime, put the Maocha inside the Bamboo separately and press them hardly with a round stick, so the Maocha can become soft along side with the heat inside the bamboo; Only in this case, the tea aroma can mix up together with fragrant bamboo’s unique aroma & sweet bamboo juice. So that is why bamboo Pu Er tea has very little bitterness or astringency, and extremely welcome by local minority, as they don’t need to store & age the Pu Er teas to get good taste.

This Naka bamboo tea enjoys very thick, mellow & sweet taste, with little astringency or bitterness; strong Chaqi, with smooth throat feeling, and the Chaqi goes down deeply to the stomach.

Presently enjoying some Naka Bamboo pu’er from JK Teashop in my new porcelain gaiwan, also from JK Teashop. This is the most delicate (cheap?) piece of teaware I’ve ever owned. I already regret the day my tea drunk ass fumbles it onto my tile kitchen floor, smashing it to bits. Anyway… the dry leaf aroma is incredible. Early steeps are a tad bitter; there’s also this interesting and new flavor for me which I assume is bamboo. Lots more smoke than I like in a pu, but considering the preparation method one cannot be surprised by that. Happy to have tried it. Thanks to cookies for recommending it.

Edit: (an hour later?) Wanted to add that at first there wasn’t much in the way of qi, then I got up to make my wife a cup of tea, and stood in the kitchen for what seemed like a long time with no idea why I was there. So this is definitely weird. Also, I lost count how many steeps I’ve had, but I’ve decided to put this aside and maybe come back to it tomorrow. It’s more powerful than I’d originally thought. Also, my dog loves it.
