Description:

This high quality ripe cake is made of spring large-leaf varietal arbor tea from Ailao mountain. Ailao mountain is one of high mountain in Simao area. Old tea trees material ripe puerh tea is quite different from garden tea ripe puerh. The raw material is completely the same as sheng puerh products which Fu Cha Ju made in 2002. Medium fermentation and 10 years perfect clean storage, an lovely and very tasty ripe puerh tea we ever met. Clean brown-reddish tea soup, smooth and sweet, rich rounded taste. Here are tones of caramel, ripe fruit and gingseng.

Excellent Shu

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Interesting point about this tea, what actually brought my attention to it, that it was made of leaves from old tea trees and that it was the same material the manufacturer also used for sheng puerh in 2002. By the way this sheng pu is excellent. Moreover, this shu is now 11-year-old.

Dry leaves look well with fair share of twigs. Tea can be easily broken. After flush, leaves release fruity (like marmalade) scent and just softly earthy aroma.
The infusion’s color is reddish brown, creamy, pleasant, cocoa fruit flavors, earthiness is not very significant.

The color and taste recalls a dark oolong, little bit. I am not a big shu puerh drinker, but I would say that this is really excellent and worth trying tea.

Gaiwans 120 ml / approx 6 grams of tea
rinse 10s and about 30/10/30/45/60/120s

Pleasant tea

I had the opportunity to taste a sample of 11-year-old ripe pu-erh and it was pleasant afternoon :) Wet leaves smell sweet after jam. The color is beautiful brown red. The taste is full with no signs of bitterness. Just a nice drink. $52 for 500g

Quotes - Pu-erh


„The best test is if, when drinking tea, there are any of prickling, tingling, numbing sensations on or near the tip of the tongue. If this is so one can be reasonably certain that agro-chemicals are present.“

Quotes

„Smokiness
The art of making tea from ancient tea trees is very old. Hand-roasting is not easily mastered. Any slight error will influence the taste of the tea. Smokiness or yan wei is one example but it should be distinguished from a burned flavour which is described as hu wei. The latter, typically arises when tea is not well roasted and is, unfortunately, not uncommon. Yan wei or smokiness is caused by oven drying. “
