Another insanely good TeaUrchin sheng! Woo!
This is the last un-tasted TeaUrchin sample from my birthday gift from my husband. This is definitely not one I would have picked out for myself just for the cost alone. (30g for $17.50)
But yes, it is indeed something special. Delicious floral sweetness, nice balance with the tangy “bitter” spice notes, and amazing cha qi. I am tea drunk at work :) “One Thousand Butterflies” FTW
I’m super impressed with TeaUrchin in general and would recommend them to all fans of raw puerh!
Oh my goodness! This one is special! I’m so sad I only have one tiny sample pack!
The front of the sip is malty and sweet and rich, but the back of the sip has a long lingering dark stone fruity aftertaste on the back of my tongue, almost like a Dancong oolong or a sheng puerh. It’s crazy! So good! I wish I had gotten one of the free $10 gift cards so I could order more. Very unique :)
I also remember really liking one of TeaVivre’s Fenqging shengs, so perhaps I’m just in love with teas from there?
Thanks to Marzipan again for the sample!
WHOA smokey minty tea, eh? Interesting…not really getting any berry. That’s ok though. Not sure this is a tea I would ever crave (I’m picky and weird about mint teas) but I am enjoying it and appreciate its uniqueness :)
Next time I’ll try sweetening it and see if it changes much for me.
