This sheng pu'erh has a strong taste with a thick liquor. It has a really interesting and pleasing sweet and bitter mouth-feel. This a strong tea with a powerful energy.

Aug. 25th, 2017

I've never had a tea as mouthwatering as this one and the bitterness which prompts it is really quite reasonable and consistent even after brewing it numerous times. It has a light, pleasant sweetness. But, really most of the presence is in a light thrust of bitterness at the start of a sip, which causes my mouth to wa...

Aug. 5th, 2017

I think that if I were new to young, raw pu-erh and thought that they were all bitter and undrinkable, this might 'wow' me in that it is sweeter, fruity, and definitely can be consumed now. But, compared to other young, raw pu-erh I've tried, it's really not special. It's also higher-priced. And, I really didn't like t...

Jul. 16th, 2017

I like this one, but I admit, at this point (July 2017), it is still a bit rough around the edges.

This tea is made with leaves from two different towns and I could taste this when drinking it. It was both sweet and bitter, astringent and mouth-watering. There was this very present duality in it, throughout the enti...

Jul. 10th, 2017

I really loved this raw pu-erh. I found it to be floral and fruity, with notes reminiscent of lichee, apricot, and peaches. It was lightly tangy and an astringency came on pretty quickly when brewing it at higher temperatures. But, when I lowered the temperature and brewed at 90C, it held out for longer without becomin...

This tea has a nice dusty flavor. It's a little weak for my taste, but if I brew it for long enough it's good. I added cream and sugar.

Mar. 29th, 2016

For my first raw pu-erh, I really enjoyed this. There is a slight astringent vegetal taste coupled with a mellow green tea taste. There is a slight bite in the mouth, but in an enjoyable amount. It is not too much or too little, but rather just right. There is also this ever so slightly smoky or woody undertone. It is ...

The aroma of the rather rough and green leaves is very sharp, like wet hay and, well, fermented tea leaves, it has that distinct fermentation smell that you get off of things that have started to become great friends with the microbes that are now hanging out with them. Mix in faint notes of honey, green beans, spinach...

I wasn't too thrilled with this, my first green pu-erh. It's more flavorful than My Zen Tea's black pu-erh, but the flavor was a little too bitter and astringent for me, even with a short brew.

Mar. 13th, 2015

The aroma of the dry leaves is pretty subtle, with notes of green bamboo leaves, freshly mown grass, cut hay, and a finish of camphor. I do love those camphor notes in tea, especially in the summer where it acts as a coolant.

The tea starts out a little bitter and then boom immediately sweet with a surprisingly smoo...

Mar. 13th, 2015

Its fairly faint aroma is a blend of sweetness and green, like fresh cut grass and honey, with a tiny hint of smoke. The faintness of the aroma did not worry me like it would with some teas, those crazy compressed to the point of being like a brick teas tend to have a faint aroma, at least the ones I have experienced.

The best Pu-erh I've tried in a tea bag.

A sample from the Philadelphia Coffee & Tea Festival. The tea bag is not at all aromatic, but upon brewing, the cup becomes much more interesting.

Aroma is like a rather typical young sheng Pu-erh, a lightly aged green Pu-erh. The aroma is fresh and grassy, with a hint o...

My entire thought while drinking this was "nothing beats knowing that I'm drinking tea from an ancient tea forest; how cool is that?!" I liked it! It was a nice brew.

The dried leaf does a have a fruity smell, like Alex suggested, not sure if I'd call it grape. The tea once brewed didn't have much of an aroma, ...

The aroma of this little tuo is not very strong, with faint notes of wet hay, sweet freshly mown hay, a bit of yeasty bread, a touch of mineral, and salty lotus leaf. Specifically the lotus notes remind me of the lotus wrapped sticky rice (or lo mai gai) that I love so much when going out for dim sum. Delicious!

5 minute steep for first cup, Smells smoky and good! Amanda's rating of the smell is pretty descriptive of it too! Great strength to this tea...steeped just right...a touch of bitterness off the bat, then I taste the sweetness on the end...the opposite of what others tasted! Not sure about the value as it was a gift......

The aroma of this tea reminds me of nature, it is like being on the edge of a pine forest and a field right after a summer rain storm. There are notes of wet hay and wet wood, along with fresh pine and camphor, also a little hint of flowers and minerals, much like rain water. It is very sweet and refreshing.

Another superb tea! And how completely different this tea is from last year's batch! Multifaceted, complex, surprisingly floral in aroma, with a very pleasing flavor, able to be infused many times.

The dry leaf has an explosion of aroma, sweet, springy, suggestive of a tippy, spring harvest green tea, but followed...

Hello, concord grape! The dry leaf of this tea smells initially like a sweet, tippy spring green tea, but this is followed by an intense fruitiness strongly suggestive of concord grape. Tea often smells like grape to me, but more often it is the muscatel grape of Darjeeling or Bai Hao oolong, or the deep raisin notes...

My first pu erh! Before steeping, I took a whiff and it smelled like a hardware store! Tried again: the second sniff smelled like tea and cookies. Much better!

This was surprisingly good. I was nervous about trying this style, but I was very happy. The tea was a light amber - quite pretty. It smells warm and swe...

The aroma of this Pu Erh is really intriguing, blending sweet notes of anise, pine needles, hay and wet oak wood. It smells really clean and nature like, the sweetness is that of new growth and anise.

The taste is very light and quite smooth in the mouth. The taste is one of sweet hay and honey that fades to a bit o...

Wow. Exceptional, unique. The dry leaf of this smells completely unlike any other tea I've tried...and so does the cup when brewed. The leaf smells like honey and flowers, but with a smoky quality. Definitely the smoothest raw Pu-erh I've ever had that was effectively un-aged (being less than a year old when I trie...

This is among my favorite Pu-erhs that I've ever sampled.

This cake has a very fine leaf, tightly packed, and is tricky to break apart. I'm glad TeaVivre had already broken it off for me for the sample.

The dry leaf has a pleasant aroma, like caramel with a hint of worcestershire sauce, and still some remnants o...
