Description:

Buy only teas you like not teas you think you like! This is a blind tasting set of all pu-erh.sk spring puerh teas. The samples are numbered and its identity can be revealed at any time by a request. If you don not like this game you always can buy a usual tasting set of the same teas with labels.

There are 7 samples per 7 grams. The whole set is about 13% cheaper than buying the samples one by one.

In case you guess the correct name for each tea you win a 50 grams of YouLe 2013 (postage excluded) for 9.8 euro.

Blind Tea Rating

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

I ordered the new tasting set of 7 sheng puerhs from spring 2013 with a new shipment of teas from pu-erh.sk. It was possible to choose from a classical labeled set or a blind test set without labels. The tea names can be obtained upon request by an e-mail. I thought it might be fun and I chosen blind set. At least I will not be affected and I can learn what I really like.

I will be opening samples one by one by numbers. It actually does not matter where I start :-) I will taste always one sample per a day. I simply want to enjoy every tea. Samples are 7g each, so I will only have one drink per each tea. It's not optimal. Tea party is not always satisfactory, so more importantly I need to take notes to be able to choose my personal winner and not to get lost.

I must say that it was not easy. All teas are very good in average, very fragrant; there is more or less bitterness in taste, wild energy and finally dryness on the tongue. Theay are all young sheng puerhs indeed. I always tried to recognize characteristic feature of each tea.

1. Bada - Sweet - 4,5*
2. Hekai - Quite bitter - 4*
3. Naka - Favorite - 5*
4. Bulang - Wild - 4,5*
5. Manzhuan - Plain - 3,5*
6. Youle – Good- 4,5*

Quotes - Pu-erh


„One of the things I often advocate for newcomers to tea drinking is to sample widely. Learning about tea is, on some level, not very difficult at all. It requires experience and an active mind to reflect upon and learn from the experiences gained. To gather this experience though, the only way to really do it is to drink a lot of tea. Reading about it or hearing about it really doesn’t do much good, for it is only theory that lacks backing from practical experiences.“

Quotes

„While unaged and unprocessed, Maocha pu-erh is similar to green tea. Two subtle differences worth noting are that pu-erh is not produced from the small leaf chinese varietal but the broad leaf varietal mostly found in the southern Chinese Provinces and India.“
