What to do with the Pu Erh samples...

by theredbaron » Oct 29th, '15, 14:57

Since i began buying Pu Erh over the net some years ago i began accumulating many sample bags. Some i did not buy for some reason or the other, others i finished testing and bought a cake or more before the samples ran out. I couldn't just throw the remaining samples away and just collected them in a big sample jar, mixing the Shengs all together.

Right now i have for the first time tried a pot from my sample jar and have a very interesting sort of semi-aged Sheng with some green notes from leaves of more recent samples, with lots of promises to age into something very drinkable.

So, if you don't know what to do with the samples, just collect and blend them and be surprised how they develop. :D

Sounds like what I got from JayinHK. Local corner tea shop putting all the remnants into one barrel.

Good stuff tho.

I just had that thought too, and then read your comment. Since then we've worked out that they actually know what they're putting into that blend--it's predominantly 7572 with a little 7542 and some other shu, too, all from different years!
