drank White Moon - Fresh Puerh by In Nature
1315 tasting notes

It was interesting to read my previous review from a few months ago. This tea is already aging nicely. My notes today before I looked up the old review:

I think this tea breaks all the rules. It smells like a white. It looks like blend of mostly white and smaller amounts of fully oxidized teas. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the initial drying is done more like a green tea. Then it is processed like a puerh. The brew is darker than a white tea and lighter than black, or rather red tea. It does not look at all like green or puerh. The taste is between white peony and silver needle early in the sip. It is lightly sweet with melon and cucumber notes. This is followed by a mellow wonderful earthiness that melts into mild but developing leather notes. Towards the back of the sip I keep thinking there is a hint of smoke. This could just be how my brain is interpreting all the other things going on and melding together. If it is, it is very convincing. Wonderfully complex. I enjoyed this one a lot this afternoon.
