Holiday Puerh ?

Discussion in 'The Cafe'' started by tieguanyin, Dec 24, 2009.

  1. Anyone planning to enjoy a special puerh on Christmas day (after all the presents opened and holiday food consumed)? I am still undecided. I may dig into my aged puerh stash for some thing tasty :biggrin:!

    Happy Holidays everyone!

  2. I will be drinking what I've been drinking for the past week or so...various '01/'02 Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuo Cha I ordered off of Tao Bao. They're all starting to taste too similar to each other...maybe I need a break from doing this.
     
  3. Yes! Have something different! Take a break from the big factory stuff. Maybe a single estate offering from a small puerh producer :biggrin:?

    Edit: Looks like Thanks went that route! Was it tasty?

  4. I'm going to have a very long session with my 08 Nadacha Cha Chan Yi Wei Nannuo cake. With only 40 in existence (probably at least a handful less as it's so delicious!), I figure it's a special enough tea to enjoy tomorrow.
     
  5. I enjoyed this cake :biggrin:! I think this is a 2001 cake acquired from YS (I forget the particulars). I believe this cake may have undergone some bamboo baking. I detected some flavors. The leaves are fairly big (see second pic with NYC 25 cent coin). Compression was really loose. I could almost pry leaves away with my fingers. Tuo pick made short order of getting a good stack of leave. Session was quite nice (6gr - 100ml teapot). Brew came out a dark golden colour (sorry no more pics - my photography is terrible). Some nice bamboo flavours in the beginning followed by sweet after taste. Very little smokiness or astringency. Pleasent puerh bitterness without being overwhelming. Got a good eight steeps out of it. Plan to continue this evening. I look forward to revisiting this cake again on special occasions!

    Nice selection!
    I thought I had replied to this thread but I guess not. I fell back to an old favorite, a 2000 Long Yuan Hao. This gets better every time I use it.
     
  7. Hey great minds think alike, I too was slurping on some 2000 long yuan hao and peacock of menghai, then some 06 menghai V93. :thumbup1:
     
  8. Sounds like you had quite a varied and tasty selection :biggrin:!
     
  9. So how was your session? Tasty I hope :drool:!
