PULSE OF HEAVEN | 2021 SHOU PU ER
This is a very juicy, unusually fruity cooked Pu Er. Early steeps are reminiscent of Taiwanese black tea; the 4th to 6th steeps reveal stronger notes of the tea's 2020 F8 base (leather, wood and fresh hay). The tea offers strong 'gan', minimum astringency, and a very sweet mouthfeel at the centre of the tongue and palate.
This tea cake is an iteration of the 2020 edition of DC’s F8. Using 400-year-old Bulang Shan tree leaves as a base, Mr. Lu added some 300-year-old Nannuo Shan tree leaves, known for enhancing ‘gan’.

WHY WE LIKE IT
This shou (ripe) pu er is smooth with a certain calming energy to it. The notes are complex enough to drink stand alone, however it pairs very nicely with dark aged rum on a cold rainy Vancouver night.
