206 tasting notes

Broke this out to brew tonight. The dry leaf in my nose seems to be of cantaloupe or honey dew melon. It is very nice and not with any off notes.
I gave it a very quick rinse and off we go. To be honest this is my second day on this tea. I was a little busy to post about it on the first day. I did make notes though. I really like this blend of sheng and shou. It gives a little sharp note of the sheng just for a moment and then the smooth and creamy shou comes in. It has a little of that wood and smoke and then a hit of the raisin and sweetness on the backnotes. This is very smooth and I think the balance is nice. Pine , sweet , oak and the nice sweet of a nice shou enter into this one. Nice and balanced . Sharp from the sheng for a moment and sweet from the shou after. Nice and wonderful blend.
Gong fu style in the yixing. Complex and wonderful.

Flavors: Oak wood, Pine, Raisins, Smoke, Sweet, Wood

This one sounds fun! I haven’t tried a ripe/raw pu’erh blend yet.

Sounds nice! My favorite thing about sheng/shou mixes is that each session is different. Sometimes you get more sheng, sometimes you get more shou. Keeps things interesting… I’ll have to put this one on my wish list!
