I’m not much of a puerh drinker – actually not at all, except for a flavored one from Lupicia, which is delicious beyond belief, but doesn’t count in my book as you can barely taste the tea. I bought these mini cakes quite a few years ago at a tea and coffee expo in New York, drank one mini cake, and promptly forgot about it. The last few nights, I’ve revisited it, drinking it to relax at the end of the day. I usually do 2 or 3 steeps (not including initial rinse), use a Western teapot, I basically don’t fuss with it at all – boil the water, drop in the mini cake, brew and drink. In mugs – again, not my usual – I like something finer to sip my tea from, but it all seems to work well for this tea.

Very forward taste of wood, slight smoke, and the earthiness I expected. Quite mellow, and really easy to drink. I find it very warming and relaxing, perfect for the cold weather we’ve been having. A bonus is that it seems to settle my tummy really well. I get the feeling that we’ll be going through more of these mini cakes over the next few weeks. As it says in the description, it’s a good entry tea for newbies to puerh as it’s not expensive, and easy to brew and drink.
