With basic equipment and mist around I decided to open one of the treasure bags which arived from Taiwan a month ago.
Stephane Erler write to me this note: "The puerh coin is probably made of plantation buds. What's interesting is that they were stored inside a real bamboo stick. Nice packaging! Quite smooth, but by far not as powerful as the mid 80s loose raw puerh I've described recently. (I have only 1 coin left in my inventory!)"
Raw puerh which is about 25 years old is not common visitor in my cup. These, to coin shaped leaves, are brown, small with very light flowery scents. Pressing is rather strong and I was glad to realized how it fits to my small yixing pot.
Second brew was already full bodied and also darker in color. Mouth fell is rounded and smooth. On taste profile participate tints of coffee chocolate.

After six infusions I have taken a break. Energize but calm I went to studio to get back to this tea during evening.
|The boiling teapot still works...|
Have a sun in your cups, no matter how misty or rainy your morning is!
Thank you for reading.
