Tea Review: Wuliang Mountain Pu-erh (Heart & Soul Tea Shop)

Wuliang Mountain Pu-erh (2008)
Heart & Soul Tea Shop/Nan Jian County Phoenix Tea Co., Ltd.
Type: Puerh
Origin: China, Yunnan Province, Nan Jian County
Product Description: Not available.

Temperature: 202° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of wood smoke, earth, mossy bark, and pepper.

The golden orange infusion has an aroma of wood smoke.  The taste is smoky and earthy with an earthy finish.

The aroma of this tea reminds me of a campfire, smoky and warm.  The first infusion had the deepest color and aroma while the lighter second and third infusions brought out more complexity and a mild astringency.

Heart & Soul Tea Shop closed in 2013.
