This was sent to me “just for fun”. As I was pouring it out of the Yixing I knew it would be just that. The aroma was like some ancient maritime cedar forest. The first sip made my cheeks tingle. There is an incredible clarity in my mind. One of those teas that the Chinese have known about for eons while we westerners have been sitting idly with black breakfast teas. There is that certain something. That mysterious glow. That energy that others with more knowledge on Eastern philosophy can articulate. I can see how the ritual of tea can lead to a higher consciousness. Me, I love this tea. Please put it on the site David.

I feel like I need to take a trip to Seattle or Vancouver just to sip sheng in the proper setting — mountains, huge trees, mist, gloom, and ocean.

Glad to see you enjoying that one. If I remember correctly, this Yongming Workshop brick is from Nansan Village. My pu’er friend and curator Wang Yanxin slipped seven bricks of this in with the last tea shipment. I actually am preparing to put it on the site. I just had to live with it for a while. The first time I prepared it, I used bad water and thought the tea was quite good, but not quite there. You would be surprised how much tea I buy from China that for one reason or another I just never put up on the site. I need to be able to get behind something fully. I have made this a few dozen times since my first experience and am really having fun with it now. A few people in Minneapolis have said that it is their favorite of all my sheng pu’er. I will keep you updated about when I post this. I have some great tasting notes to accompany it.

Maritime cedar forest …I can smell it! I have the scent of the coast redwood forest floor in my memory. It resembles tea sometimes loose and sometimes puer. Great sensory review.
