Thank you Dexter3657 for this sample.
Yixing teapot – 370ml of which I will only be filling half way as it’s for one so roughly 175ml-200ml
Tea weight – 6g
Water temp – 95°C
Steeping times – 15 second increments
It smells sweet like honeysuckle with delicate hints of wood, smoke and hay. Surprisingly sweet and smooth for a Sheng.
In flavour this is creamy, delicate, sweet, smoky and musky. The smoke is like velvet, it’s soft but rich and it lingers in the after taste. Further steeps reveal sweet wood and floral flavours but it remains thoroughly smoky and light.
A very delicious Pu Erh and easily one of my new favourites. I wish Mandala shipped to UK. :(
