Another incredible offering from Verdant. I have rinsed the leaves and the first steeping was quick. Maybe a minute or less. I am getting a Redwood forest taste if such a thing exists. It is smooth and luscious. I think I am getting a numbing sensation in my mouth. I am moaning with each sip. My opinion so far is to buy the whole brick if possible. Is that camphor description I read about leading to the numbing? This tea is beautiful. It is making my body glow. I am only on the first steeping. Where will this tea take me? The second steep is stronger. When I was pouring it out of the dark brown Yixing I had to admire the beautiful color of the liquor. This cup is darker. Stronger. More aromatic. The numbing more intense. I think this is the tea that you would want if you could have no other. I am at a loss for words….

Thanks Charles!
What a great tasting note and experience that you captured. That camphor, numbing sensation is absolutely seductive (to me anyways). It is perhaps my favorite direction for a shu pu’er to go. I get that sensation from the Yiwu brick, and from a new brick I just got in that hasn’t gone up yet. The name literally translates to “The Star of Bulang.” I think some may have to be sent your way in the future.

Your notes are always appreciated, and thoroughly enjoyed!
Best Wishes,
David
