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 !
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 🙂
