Psst. Over here. So you lookin' for something a bit off the beaten path? Look no further than this curious puerh collection I've assembled right here.
Why not get your teeth wet with a bit of the '05 Glee by Yangpinhao? It's a 250g tuo, which they beautifully wrapped in '15. Dry storage to the max, a good bit of color to it, starting to detect a bit of wild weeds to the one I have handy, which I wasn't tasting earlier this summer and is one of my least favourite tastes. Hey, I spent good money on this bugger so you better enjoy it! $75
Still there's another 250g tuo you might care to dance with, the '10 Year of the Tiger by Lancang Ancient Tree. You'll want to pay attention to the granny smith after notes with this little charmer. This has been my favourite production from this company so far, much smoother than the year of the rat and priced much nicer than the 150g year of Ox. $35
I definitely want you to check this little hussy out, the '01 Little Green Mark. Brace yourself... it's a fake comprised of a mixture between raw and ripe. The real doozy is that the person who made it really knew what they were doing in terms of the material and storage. I've included a foto below. Maybe you can make out the "jin hua," a microbial marvel and testament to its fine storage conditions that translates into a smooth warm and round broth. $39
As usual there will be plenty of palate cleansers: tortilla chips, cheese, some fatty non-pork bacony type treat, something like pickled ginger. I'm also thinking some garlicky fried noodles might be in order.
We'll need 5 to make a go of it limit 7, $16.
