2004 CNNP Old Tree Green Pu-erh Tea Cake .Puerhshop.comApril 29, 2008 at 9:47 am | Posted in Pu-Erh, Sheng (raw green), Tea Reviews | Leave a comment
Method: approx 2x2x0.5cm piece in 4oz gaiwan + 3-4oz filtered h2o @ 200F
20sec wash = watery wash
the next 20,20,30 secs tasted watery + a very distant tannin/astringent in the back of the mouth, giving sort of a metallic mouthfeel.
got pissed at no flavor so dunked it for 2 minutes… hello? …nope, same ol’ watery stuff with more concentration of the astringency.
so…ok buddy, you think yore tuff? ehhh? HUH?
w h a t did you just say to me ?
right, nuthin. you best keep it zipped ore imma slap you like yo mama did…
and in it went for about 4min…coulda been 5 :P…= a more concentrated tannin/astringency now gives it a harsh feel in teh mouthes but after that…not much flavor of anything…
Overall: i feel nothing. i have no feelings toward this piece of tree. leaf. bush. tea.
