A middle-of-the-road raw pu-erh ball. Pleasantly bitter. A mixture of fruit and floral, with more of the fruit notes on the nose and more of the floral notes on the tongue. Mildly dry, but with a good mouth feel. Mild aftertaste.

This ball is fairly easy to open up. I would place it between Crimson Lotus Planet Jingmai (harder to open) and White2tea Smooch (easier to open).

1st steep – wash for 30 seconds, poking the ball lightly with the gaiwan lid. Discarded. Left gaiwan covered for 5 minutes.

2nd steep – another 30 seconds, more poking. Ball mostly opened up. I drank this one.

3rd steep – fell back to 20 seconds, more poking, and ball finished opening up.

Added +10 seconds from there on in.

Flavors: Bitter, Fruit Tree Flowers

Tea nut until I discovered young shengs and now I am tea insane! Hoarding as much spring harvests as I possibly can like a greedy sheng chipmunk.
