Very good sheng pu’er! Tough would be on whether I like this 2014/2013 autumn or Misty Peak Teas’ 2012 autumn. Both are good, though very different.
This 2014 autumn is quite complex, yet consistent through each cup and infusion. 15 infusion I got great flavor contrast between a dry, earthy forest and hazelnut flavor, with a tangy citrus peach/persimmon notes, all with a very good thick texture of cream. I found at the 3rd steeping the flavor got very crisp and delicious, with the 9th steeping being fantastic as well.

This sheng also has a power of getting you to sip slowly, enjoying the cup and the lingering aftertaste.

Hmm, I got 15 infusions, but I’m sure I can squeak out a few more later in the day!

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
White 2 Tea
Steep City Teas
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
