From Teavivre

This tea comes from Lingcang, a city belongs to one of the four famous Pu-erh production areas. The taste of Fengqing Pu-erh is mellow and sweet, deeper than Pu-erh in other production area. It was produced in 2018 and a commemorative tea for the 20th anniversary of the establishment of our cooperative tea factory. The tea leaves used to make it are all high-grade pure leaves hand-picked from 80 to 500 years old Large-leaf Tea Trees. Good material makes good tea. Its liquid is clean, with rich glutinous rice and sweet aroma. The taste is smooth, soft and mellow, and can brew multiple steeps.

So now that it’s 2024, I wanted to try one of my Teavivre puerh samples I ordered last year. There are six of them.  I wanted to try them close together but not all in the same week, so one a week sounds like the perfect plan. These samples are mostly Fengqing.  I wanted to try the Fengqing that Teavivre had, because I was a very huge fan of their Fengqing Golden Buds Ripened Pu-erh Cake 2013  but also their Fengqing Ripened Tribute Pu-er Cake 2013  that they no longer carry.  Hoping I like them because they are Fengqing and not just because 2013 was a lovely year for puerh.  I’m expecting greatness from these samples!  And I started with the 2014 Anniversary Cake. 
It is very easy to break these leaves apart from the cake.   But also the 10 gram sample doesn’t seem like much.  In the past, I would probably use all 10 grams in a mug, but I don’t want to overdo it for these initial taste tests.  I’m going to try to steep them all the same!This was harvested in 2014 and produced in 2018.  Aroma of dry leaf – very bready, almost like raw pizza dough. Just the way I like it.  And this is also most of the flavor profile — very bready and doughy.  Very sweet throughout — maybe a couple drops of coffee. Very delicious — NOT A HINT of any negative characteristics.  This is certainly an acceptable puerh to me.  The second steep was the strongest flavored.  The fourth was a bit weak for my tastes. It would be ultra delicious if I had used all 10 grams.  I might just revisit my favorite from 2013 again, to see how they compare at the end of trying the six samples…
Steep #1 // half sample (5grams) for medium sized mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 7 second rinse // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 11 minutes after boiling // 3 min
Steep #3 // just boiled // 3 min
Steep #4 // just boiled // 10 min
