So excited to try this!! My first sheng puerh!
Parchment-like aroma. Tree bark and limestone. Slight cereally background.
MIneral-rich taste. Flavor reminiscent of a rainforest—all lush greenery rooted in rich soil. Paradoxically, though, it also tastes delicate and dry. I’m reminded of beautiful, papery moth wings.
Very interesting. I like it. I admire it’s complexity.
But, the aforementioned “creaminess” eludes me, right now.
It seems that my lazy, quick, western-style brewing has done this tea a disservice! :)
