The 2001 XY Yiwu Gushu Shu Puerh from Lao Tea Shop is a sweet shou puerh with strong camphor notes in the finish and long-lasting aftertaste.
Tea Joint’s Si Fang Aunt Ming Shu Puerh is a fun tea to discover. It starts out with some edgy notes but becomes really comforting towards the end.
Terre de Ciel’s 2016 Menghai Parfum de Jujube ripe is such a good shu puerh. It offers sweet flavours that are full of dried fruits.
ANMO’s 2013 Sunsing Aged Tree Shou Pu-Erh tea is a perfect harmony of wet leaves, mushrooms, cherry wood and a sweet earthiness.
Yunnan Sourcing’s 2013 Yong De Blue Label Ripe Pu-er is a good everyday shou. It starts out earthy with notes of camphor and becomes really sweet.
The Wild Orange 2009 Ripe Puer Tangerine from Teasenz is the perfect introduction to shou puer tea. There is a subtle earthiness and an orange sweetness.
Trying the 2018 Gong Ting Ripe Stuffed Mini Citrus was a clear win. Musty notes of citrus that add to the already deep complexity of this tea.
