Leaf Type: Pu-erh
Where to Buy: In Nature
Pu-erh, the great “connoisseur Tea”. The Queen of all Teas, known for its noble palate, taste and aroma. Also famous for its numerous health properties. Yunnan region.
This tea brews to a reddish-brown colour and has a distinctive liquorice, soothing taste.
The more I drink Pu-erh, the more I am liking it. As I’ve mentioned before, I wasn’t always fond of it. In fact, disgust would be a better way to describe my feelings toward Pu-erh. But, since that time, I have learned how to brew Pu-erh and now that I brew it properly (well, properly for me, anyway), I actually quite like it.
The aroma of the dry tuocha is earthy but it is not as strong an earthy essence as some Pu-erh I have encountered. Once brewed, the liquor is quite light in fragrance. Likewise, the flavor is much lighter-tasting. It is remarkably smooth and even. The sometimes off-putting earthy flavor of Pu-erh is not present here. Yes, it has an earthy quality to it, but it is rather delicate and quite nice.
The description above suggests that this has a liquorice flavor, and I must agree, I can taste the liquorice-like note in this, and it resonates throughout the sip. This liquorice flavor highlights the deep sweetness to this cup.
this is definitely one of the most delightful Pu-erh teas that I’ve ever had the opportunity to taste. I like it very much.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
