From Soleil Tea

Known for its earthy taste and medicinal benefits, pu-erh has been enjoyed by people around the world for many centuries. Our Aged Pu-erh expresses the rich, earthy taste with an exceptionally clean finish. The refreshing woodsy aroma is reminiscent of a forest after rain. Its natural sweetness as a result of aged fermentation makes this bold cup approachable for both new and seasoned tea drinkers. The complete absence of astringency or bitterness also makes Aged Pu-erh a popular choice. When overbrewed, simply add more water. A great choice for coffee drinkers who are making the switch.

Got a 5g sample of this from the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box and drank it last week, I believe. This shou had a strong aroma when wet and steeped up a deep red to start. The flavor was a blend of coffee, petrichor and almost alcoholic fermentation. I did get some fishy notes, and earthy, woody notes emerged throughout the session. The aftertaste was fairly sweet and I did get some decent viscosity with longer steeps.

This is not a shou that I would ever care to own, as the fishy notes—though subtle in comparison to really low quality puerh—were noticeable enough to put me off. It is not undrinkable, but I have plenty of better options in my stash that I’d grab instead.

I kind of don’t feel like writing lately, but I need to keep these notes up so I can remember each of these teas.

The dry leaf smells a little dank, meaty, and spicy, like a typical shou. That wet wood smell is pretty dominant.

The brew is mineral and wood, sometimes with wet leaves and bark, as well as some tangy leather. It’s a pretty smooth shou when it’s cooler, but when it’s hot, there is an astringency that dries out the fillings in my teeth. I didn’t care for that part!
