Fantastic tea! Very loose compression, especially for a shou. Big broad leaves in this one, I used around 8g in a 200ml yixing with a rinse and 10s steeps initially. The color was a little lighter than expected, a deep reddish brown. The tea was sooooo smooth! It just flows in the mouth with little to no resistance. Flavors showed good complexity with notes of leather, dates, and spices. The hui gan of this tea kicks you right in the mouth! Lots of times I’ll have to breath in or out to notice the hui gan of a tea, but this one has an immediate numbing sensation on the roof of the mouth and tongue. Great cha qi too! An awakening, reassuring calmness is what I got from this tea and I quite enjoyed it. Based on reviews I bought a whole cake before sampling it first and I’m not disappointed in the least! This is one hell of a shou pu erh!
Very enjoyable to drink. Smooth, silky, sweet and rich; pleasant in the mouth and throat.
Two quick rinses; then left it for 20m to open up. The first steep produced a clean mahogany colored tea soup; pleasantly appealing woody smell mixed with the aroma of fresh leather. First sip was welcoming and pleasant – no bitterness at all with accompanying tobacco undertone. Later steeps became full and smooth with subtle cacao tones and sweet aftertaste. Took it through nine steeps and I could probably get another one or two but I’m ready to move on to something else.
I think I have found my new favorite shou pu’er. This tea is incredible. It is incredibly mellow, yet extremely flavorful. There are layers of flavor that I cannot even begin to properly describe. I am five steppings into this delightful tea an my palate is in pu’er heaven! Well worth the money.
