The doctor is in! I wonder where Dr. Puer got his or her degree? This is a nice smooth easy drinking shu. It kind of tastes like Dayi and Xiaguan had a baby, and it was mellower than its parents. Some subtle smoke, changing states of dark flavors, smooth and very clear, not very complex. It is on the lighter side. If you haven’t tried the Doc, this would be a good one to start with.
This was a good tea, though not my personal style. If you like Xiaguan ripes, I think you would really enjoy this one. It has a Smokey backdrop which I think people describe as camphor. The soup is really clear, which is unusual for a young ripe in my experience. It held up well and lasted a long time. This is old school ripe pu erh.
Took a big risk on this tea as I was buying a large quantity without tasting it. I bought 2 5kg bings of this, one for myself, one for my EBay store. It wasn’t a complete risk because I have had a variety of teas from Dr Puer Tea and they have all been good. This one turned out to be just a little short of spectacular. There was a bittersweet note in the start and a fair amount of fermentation flavor to it but no off flavors from the fermentation. There was perhaps just the barest hint of spice. After only a few steeps the bitter note was gone and a sweet note remained that was delightful. It felt like I added sugar to it it was so sweet. The really surprising thing about this tea was the qi. It was incredibly strong through perhaps six or seven steeps. This tea was well worth the risk and hopefully someone else will find that out too by buying the one I have for sale at Ebay. This tea did not come cheap but when you think of it in grams per dollar it is not expensive. You just don’t get a 5kg bing of tea for under $50.
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Earth, Sweet
I will not give this tea a numerical score because I am selling it on EBay. I took a chance on this tea. I could have been terrible. Luckily could have did not translate into was terrible. It started off with three distinct notes, fermentation taste, a dark bittersweet taste, not sure if I would go as far as to say bittersweet chocolate however, and a spicy or camphor note. This tea was fairly well compressed and took two steeps to open up. For the first five or six steeps the bittersweet note and the earthy note was strong. It is worth noting that I didn’t taste any fishy taste or off taste in the fermentation taste. Somewhere around the eighth steep it turned into a pure sweet tea but the camphor or spicy note continued. By the tenth steep the spicy note was gone and all that was left was a sweet note. I would say a note of dried fruit, the kind without any sugar and a variety of fruit that only has a mild sweetness not a strong sweet note that a pineapple would give. But a sweet note it was in the finish.
I steeped this tea thirteen times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.8g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, and 2.5 minutes.
