I’m having another night of playing an RPG game with my husband and since it will be a long night there is nothing better than re steeping a gongfu of pu erh.
Dragon Tea House have a lot of strange and unique pu erh and I thought the same of this one. I have not known any pu erh to be formed in this long shape before inside the bamboo. It reached my curious meter so I bought it and it arrived a few months ago but I have a craving for raw pu erh tonight.
I open the packet and observed it’s wonderful shape and colour. It looks amazing! http://tinypic.com/r/2ez4bvp/6
Starting with 1 minute infusion it said that this can be steeped over 10 times. I only put around two small cakes worth of pu erh into the gongfu to try it’s strength.
First of all since this is raw the pu erh soup is yellowy green with a floral and astringent smell. Almost perfumey.
Then I taste, and taste, and taste some more. It’s very floral but light and fresh with a touch of sweetness. Each steep seems to be increasing it’s strength but it remains nicely balanced. It also darkens in colour becoming more of a very light amber.
For only $4.99 for 50g it makes this pu erh cheap and tasty, a winning combination for me. I will definitely be placing an order for more of this.
