20 tasting notes

Been tasting the 1990, 2000 and 2005 version of this basket, shu that is. Quite a discovery, it’s close to pu erh, but has its own character. It has a smooth woodsy fragrance, although, the 2005 still has a green touch. Quality is good, as it steeps easily 10 times and still has that nice no-nonsense flavor. As it is less popular than pu erh, prices are quite modest.

Flavors: Malt, Wood

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 30 sec 5 g 1 OZ / 15 ML

Bio

Brussels based tea aficionado, grew up with herbal infusions (ortie/nettle, hmmm), but over the years I got more and more interested in the real McCoy aka Camellia S.; nowadays, a big fan of shu and sheng Pu Erh, entre autres. As an amateur alchemist, I also like to brew my own herbal mixes. Bref, it’s a way of life!
