From Purepuer

Factory: Jin Yu Xuan
Harvest Year: 2006
Type: Ripe/Shu
Harvest Area: Nan Nuo Mountain

This teacake comes from the famous Nan Nuo Mountain in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. This stone pressed cake is made from wild ancient puer tea trees that are 500 to 800 years old. It has a rich, long lasting smooth taste that leaves a moist feeling in your mouth. The color is a clear reddish amber and the leaves are spongy. It is a great tea to drink now, and is also a good tea for aging. The Jin Yu Xuan company, which won a silver medal in a 2006 black puer tea competition in Yunnan, only produces a limited amount of tea a year.

This is quite possibly the best ten year old ripe I have ever had. It started with some bittersweet notes and I would venture to say some notes of chocolate. These notes were fleeting and other notes developed. I would say it developed a dates note by the eighth steep or so. It also evolved into the sweetest and smoothest ripe puer I have ever had. As to qi. I am feeling a little, quite relaxing. Usually I get no qi off of ripe tea but I am getting some. Now to the big question about this tea. The description of the tea says it is from 500 to 800 year old teas. This certainly has the staying power of ancient trees. I am on steep 16 and plan to go back for more. The main question is do I trust the seller. I do believe I trust the seller to be telling the truth on this matter. And every tea he has sold me has been good. I definitely recommend some samples from him if you have not ordered. This is also my most expensive cake purchase. This cost $310 for 400g.

I brewed this 16 times in a 110ml Yixing Teapot with 8.2g 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, 20 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, 2.5 min, 3 min, 3.5 min, and 4 min. The tea wasn’t finished at 16 steeps, will probably go back for more.

Went back for two more steeps. Then boiled the ;eaves for ten minutes to get the last out of them. The result of the boil is interesting. More body than the last steeps had even though I was boiling in more water. Still sweet.

It is a great tea indeed. I sipped it last year as part of an afternnon tea at Mandarin Oriental.
