14 Tasting Notes
Tasted this today and loved it. Quite like the shape too. What’s next? A pu erh football for the WC2014?
Powerful stuff, very earthy, nice texture, no subtleties wasted, straightforward and robust (feels like I’m praising myself, haha). This shu has it all, you want to go for a walk in the woods, after a heavy rain, without moving, drink this, it will take you places.
Got this sample of the 2004 Yue Guang Bai aka Moonlight White, from the tea shop, and, when the moon hits my eye, like a big pizza pie, it’s gaiwan time.
First impression, beautiful mix of green and white leaves. Second impression, nice color, very fruity and sweet, strong ‘hui tian’. The package says mysterious infusion, but I miss out on that one, the sweetness makes it a rather easy and in-your-face drink. On the other hand, quite amazing, one would say they’ve really put some sweet stuff in it. This diversity makes me love tea so much. Next!
Still young, but very generous, the astringency is mild, smokey, still some herbal notes, a bit of sweetness, a bit of wet musk; it has character written all over it. No surprise, when you know, the leaves are coming from wild, and not so young, trees…makes you dream of Old Man Willow.
Very nicely aged sheng; dark and beatiful leaves; strong, positive feel. Tasted it quite some time now and, in general, it really has a strong effect on people, as in laughing kicks, yawning, singing etc. Thus, the name is well chosen, happiness, but watch out, it’s a warm gun :)
Young potential. Very articulate aroma, not too smoky for me, strong cha qi.
No notes yet. Add one?
Even the rain couldn’t stop me today, to get some of my favorite Sheng and this is one of them.
Only 3 pearls needed for one gaiwan, now that’s called efficiency. Steep time can go up to 10 minutes. Very enjoyable drink.
Very nice version of Bai Mu Dan, college girls will love it :-)
