Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2012 Chen Sheng Hao Golden Ban Zhang bought from King Tea in China. :D What is your take on it? I've tried a few of the higher ends CSH Ban Zhang products and have found them to vary quite a bit. This Ban Zhange pu'er is fine but I definitely prefer their top of the range although these are quite e...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Tea urchin's snake blend is a special tea for me. I love '13 version more, but ran out of it hence it's '14 version's turn. I have the 2013 spring version, its very good. It is what started me drinking sheng puerh. On my side I have just about 20 grams left of the 2013 version and I am tempted to b...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Sipping tea from a tea sample given to me by a friend. It is Bitterleaf 's Lao Man E' sheng. Usually I do not drink teas from this region as they tend to be too bitter for my taste but this must be their sweeter tasting tea leaves variety. :)

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2013 Mengku Lincang raw pu'er from a free sample from Les Thes Terre de Ciel in France with a purchase. It is now the end of the sample but still plenty of tea buds making this tea very pleasant beverage to sip grandfather style while working from home. Smooth with a hay aroma from the wet leaves. :)

Drinking Vesper Chan's Treasure of Five Mountains from 2018 today. Got this one from HK last Fall. The tea has developed nicely. To tong or not to tong...
On my side I only have a cake or so of their 2012 version of that tea. It has developed very well since then. :D

Re: Refrigerating brewed puerh tea

Just do not forget to bring the tea leaves to room teamperature and afterwards give them an initial flash rinse with hot water as if the leaves are going to be steeped for the first time. This rinse will "re-awaken" the tea leaves.

On amazon I see boveda packs for ‘herbal’ storage with 62% RH. Would that work?

The tea is a 2001 cake. I should have been more careful with it.
I do 72% Boveda.
Me too specially in the permanent summer weather (temperature wise) of the office where I work.
