This has become one of my favorite shous. The liquor is a deep reddish brown with a warm and sweet aroma. There are notes of compost, leaves, and autumnal air. The taste is primarily dirt, compost, and autumnal leaves. There is also just the slightest hint of scotch in the back of your mouth. A slight astringency remin...

Qianjiazhai Old Growth 2014 Sheng from Verdant Tea

Not my favorite cup of tea. The more and more raw pu er I try the more and more I'm not sure I like it. This one has a strong tobacco aroma from my gaiwan, although there is little to no aroma from the liquor. The first infusion has a light color and a light, sweet taste. There are hints of dark fruit. Perhaps plums or...

I liked this, but it was not my favorite shou. The aroma is sweet, earthy, and wet. There is some fruitiness and maybe some citrus present as well. The taste is smooth, earthy, and reminiscent of citrus and wet autumn leaves. Very smooth taste.

Style: Raw / Green / Sheng Pu-erh – Region: Yunnan, China

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 ...

This was my first experience with Raw Pu'erh, so this review may be biased on that.

I was initially opposed to this tea. It has an overwhelming bitterness to it that seemed to distract from the other flavors. However, after steeping the tea for a much shorter time (only 10-15s in my gaiwan) I managed to balance out...
