I recently contributed some ideas for an article about puerh aging on the Cha Dao blog. This gave me the idea to try my raw, wild Lincang puerh again. Have a look at the little plate over the teapot and you'll see that I use very few leaves, just enough to cover the bottom of the pot. This means I brew this puerh very long. Time would be measured in minutes. But time doesn't really matter anymore. I just pour when I feel like. Sometimes, it's just so easy.
This puerh still tastes very young. I think it has only slightly changed since last year. A little rounder in taste and fragrances a notch more mature.
Should I be disappointed? Not at all. It is moving in the right direction. Besides, it hasn't picked any secondary smells. It tastes completely pure.
