spot52: You Zi Cha Pomelo Pu-erh (REVISED)

Postby spot52 » Sep 4th, '10, 22:35

This is an interesting Pu from chicago tea garden. Here is a link to their page:

I wanted to try it. I have to admit, it is one of the best Pu-erhs I have ever tasted. It has a mellow flavour with a slight citrus taste. But I know I will not finished this one anytime soon. I have only chipped out two servings. I could swap portions of it if anyone is interested.

I would be interested in Keemuns, Oolongs, sweet Chinese greens, and possibly others.

Hmmm, I have a Topaz pu-er from Tao of Tea that was pretty good, very roasty, and smoky, with a slight sweetness at the end.

I don't have many rare teas at the moment. I do have some Copper Knot Hongcha which is a very excellent Black tea.

I had a really nice Keemun Golden Bud, but I just used the last of it a few days ago :/

It looks like I am going to break this into smaller pieces for trade, if people are interested. I already sent out a 30 gram portion yesterday. So if the smaller portions are favorable to you, shoot me a pm.

Several samples have been swapped, and there is still some left.

That is pretty creepy. The pomelo skin reminds me of toad skin.
Hey, it looks like the perfect tea to brew up on Halloween! :mrgreen:

BTW, they mention repeated rinses. How many rinses do you give it?

I'd be interested in a swap, but doubt I have anything you may want. Would you be interested in a sample of the 2006 Haiwan imperial tea brick?

It is an interesting product, and I did not see the Halloween thing until you mentioned it. Nice. I am sure we could work something out. I will send you a pm.
