Review of 2012 Yong De Blue Label Ripe (Shou) Pu-erh

7 of 105 of 55 of 580 of 100
Very GoodExcellentOutstanding

Prepared tea from 8 g, coarsely ground, of a 357 g cake. Used 18 oz boiled water and brewed for 6 min; added 4 oz ice. Final = 2.9 g/8 oz. The tea had a strong earthy flavor, not acidic or astringent, and no mushroom flavor like some Pu-erhs. Very full bodied, and great taste! The tea liquor is black, which is why the Chinese call it "dark tea".
