This is my first young raw pu-erh and I feel very enthisiastic.
As a newbie on pu-erh teas I was just tried only 1999 raw pu-erh and Liu Bao by GrandTea and I was mostly drinking just ripe pu-erhs.
This one really surprised me, well…I read other reviews about this tea and I should expect such notes; but I felt surprised anyway.
That’s beacuse I was just get used to tasting classic notes on aged Raw Pu-erh, Ripe Pu-erh and Liu Bao. _
I like so much the cake, it’s a beautiful mosaic of leaves and buds, with green and beige colours.
Before brewing it for the first time I waited a month, and after this time I noticed that these dry leaves smeels a bit fruity. :P
I used 5 g for 100 ml; I rinsed for 10 sec and than brewed for 15’’, 20’’, 30’’, 45’’, 1’, 1’30’’, 2’. 3’, etc….until 30 minutes.
The liquor has a golden yellow colour and it’s clear, with a creamy body .
It immediately release his sweet, vegetal (seaweed), fruity (apricot) aromas.
In the mouth feel these notes, plus herbal, and, secondly, also floral notes; sometimes I taste a little bit of astingency.
It leaves a good vegetal-fruity aftertaste, it’s a very vivacious tea.
After many brewings it start to die, but the fruity notes keeps on and it’s a very pleasure drinking it also after a 30 minutes of brewing.
I can’t get tired of this. _
