Tea Review: 2011 Huang Pian Puerh (Floating Leaves Tea)

2011 Huang Pian Puerh
Floating Leaves Tea
Type: Puerh
Origin: China, Fujian Province
Product Description:
The broth is soft and smooth, with chocolate and dried fruit notes. Classic date fragrance. Body is not as rich and syrupy as our Da Xue Shan 2006, for example, because the material doesn't contain young leaves and buds. But the flavor is clean and the energy is grounding.
Temperature: 208°
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have and aroma of salt-cured food, tree bark and moss.

The dark red infusion has an aroma of moss, freshly turned soil, and wood.  The taste is thick, rich, and smooth with notes of wood, moss, and earth.

This puerh was delicious, notably smooth, and flavorful throughout multiple infusions, leaving a warming sensation at the finish.  The liquor darkened by the second infusion and brightened by the third.  On a more personal note, I was reminded of collecting moss for a neighbor's floral business when I was a child.

This tea review was written in 2021.

This tea was purchased by me.
