Puerh

Puerh his a type of fermented tea from China, within Yunnan province. Fermented tea is tea that has undergone microbial fermentation from several to months to several years. For this Pureh tea b have sent me their :
Yunnan Seven Pu’Er Cakes 2014 yr New Tea XiaGuan Bao Yan Brick 250

Upon opening the tea pouch that the tea arrived in you are instantly engulfed with that distinct fermented aroma. It’s one of those kind of smells where you are really hoping that the tea doesn’t taste like it smells!

Let’s get brewing !

It’s. It isn’t the easiet to get the tea leaves separated from the brick or maybe I’ve just not found the magic trick of doing it !

The aroma whilst brewing , thankfully no longer smells like it’s dry state. It does still have a slight fermentedness to but nothing like the dry tea leaves.
As expected with what is known as a dark tea the brewed liquid is of a dark brown nearly black in.

Let’s get sipping!

Wow, first sip is nothing like what I expected it to be. Trust me this a very good thing. Pureh can have varying types of flavours. For me this one has a more earthy mellow flavour to it. Gone is the fermented aroma and what I expected it to taste like. It’s not overly sweet in its flavour but it doesn’t have the bitterness that some can have.

Further added to the sipping experience Pureh can quite often change its flavour during the cup allowing for combination of tastes. If anything for me the only change in its flavour was more that became slightly bitter further down the cup you drank.

Would I say I love this tea, I’m not so sure but in comparison to what I first smelt of the tea it’s a vast improvement. However I have been informed that with Puerh tea the taste of it changes depending on its age. So maybe in 6 months I’ll get a different taste.

Happy Sipping 🙂

What I love about connecting with tea companies from all around the world is trying new teas that you aren’t able to easily get hold of where I’m based in the UK. So I always look forward to receiving international teapost.

Tuo Tea

Thanks to Moylor I’m able to try for the first time Tuo Tea . This specific tea is from 2012 and is a High Quality Raw Puer Raw Tea Tuocha Puyu Qingtuo Tea. This tea is mainly produced in the Yunnan area. Tuo Tea can be divided into either green or black tea depending on what raw materials it’s made of. For the one I’m trying today is classed as a green one!

Tuo Tea can either come in lumps or bricks. As you can see from the photo this one is a lump. Unlike a brick it easier to transport. The tea looks similar to a thick-walled bowl with a whole in the middle.

Let’s get brewing !

Now I’m not going to lie but working out the best way to get the tea leaves apart was a bit of a challenge and maybe using knife isn’t the best option but needs must!

The aroma of the tea in its dried state is quite pungent. It’s strong and almost earthy. Like a deep richness that only comes with age.

The aroma whilst brewing isn’t too dissimilar to its try state it’s just not as intense. I can’t really think of an aroma comparison for this tea to you.

The brewed liquid is of an orangey brown in its colour.

First sip is interesting. I am very surprised and almost relieved that the tea doesn’t taste anything like it smells. However it still has an almost earthy edge to its taste. This is due to the way the tea has been manufactured and is a fermented tea, which is where the teas flavour and characteristics is formed. It has a deep richness and there’s all something nostalgic about sipping on a tea that’s 6 years old.

The sipping experience is light and refreshing as the tea has a natural sweetness to it which is surprising considering the earthy depth in flavour that the tea also has.

I think this tea is a grower , the more you try it the more I’ll like it !

Happy Sipping 🙂
