From Wild Tea Qi


A deeply fermented puer with a smoothness followed by slight fruity notes with an autumn like sweetness


Coming from ancient tea trees that date around 400-500 years old, this tea is handpicked by the Yi Tribe and Dai Tribal people of Yunnan. They are then expertly pressed into a convenient 6g disc and then individually wrapped in gold foil, making the perfect size for brewing or to take your tea with you.

The legendary ancient tea tree mountain, Yang Ta has a peak towers up to 8,760 feet high (2920 meters). The ancient tea trees that grow on this mountain grow as high as a staggering 27 feet in length and 6-12 feet in diameter!

A variety of Puer and white teas are harvested from this mountain. The large leaf teas that, comes from there have distinct, silvery, white hairy features that contain an olive like aroma. They have been harvesting tea here since ancient times. The average age of the tea trees range between 200-500 years old on this mountain.

This one is a decent/good Puerh to me, Slightly “fishy” aroma at first in the rinse and first steep that was gone by the second steep(perhaps i’ll break one and air it out next time). The color is quite very dark almost completely black and “thick”. The flavor is nice a solid, earthy and slightly sweet with a pleasant “doughy” tast that is reminiscent of Pie Crust which was very nice. Best of all to me was the leafe itself, intact, large leafe pieces, no crumbling and very little stems. Good Tea!
I added this Tea here but No Photo, Sorry Steepster just ain’t gonna let me add the photo, oh well at least the tea is logged :)

i was curious to see how many steeps i got out of one of these coins, but after 4 steeps western style i threw in the towel. this is my first puerh, and i got a definite fishiness through all 4 steeps. this made me think of walking along a boat dock with its taste of ocean air, and some seaweed flavours. also some flavors of stock for me. definitely caught a bit of a buzz from this.

edit: i think next time i try this i will rinse x3 before the first steep, and see how this affects the fishy funkiness.

edit 2: tried airing it out, and rinsing it and i couldnt even bring myself to try a cup of this afterwards the fishiness is just way too gross. to say im bumping my rating of this down is an understatement.

I found the flavor of this a little woody, a touch nutty, and sweet from the first smooth brew. Simple and satisfying. This soothes and nourishes, and left me with a gentle energy boost.
