I am guessing you are shaking your head in disbelief when you read the title of this blog. I am not tea drunk. There is, really, a 'Countryside Tea Factory'. Just look at the wrapper on the last pix.
I got this 50g tuo as a gift from a tea distributor in Guangzhou last month. He told me it was from his personal collection.
My guess is this tuo is about 15 years old. This mini tuo is highly compressed and I almost 'poke' myself with a tea pick as I was dismantling the tuo.
These are my findings from 2 sessions of this tea. There was hardly any sweetness in the tea. This tea is strong in both taste and aroma. There were strong herbal notes in the tea; almost medicinal herbs and a bitter tree bark taste in the initial infusions. Middle infusions were quite mouthwatering with a herbal soup taste like lingzhi and ginseng roots. I felt the aftertaste is a little dry. This tea made a dozen good infusions in one sitting. I believed my tea distributor friend liked the unique herbal medicinal profile in the tea. An interesting tea....from the countryside.
Hi Wilson, I live in Singapore too. Was wondering what’s the optimal way to store puer. I don’t have much space in my house. Should I put everything in a plastic box and separate ripe vs raw in 2 boxes. Air conditioner would be on at night. Is that of any concern? What do you think? Thank you
Hello Daryl, Thanks for your feedback. Shall we do. a tea exchange and I can have a better idea of your tea storage (with air con). Wilson
Just a normal bedroom. Is it a good idea to store it there? Sorry, im still new to this whole tea thing
I am unable to tell you as I do not have knowledge on the results of tea storage in rooms where there is air conditioning in the evenings. I do not mind meeting up to pass you samples of my tea (free) so as you can have some idea on my storage. Sometimes due to space constraints....we can only store our tea in either the living room or in bedrooms....especially in Singapore where space is a precious commodity. I did notice many of my local tea friends storing their tea in the living room or study. Most important, have fun drinking your tea.
Awesome, thank you. I guess if i were to drink finish those which i just purchase within like 1-3 month, it will not make a big difference to where i store it right
