NaKa Shan has quickly become one of my favorite kinds of puer. The throat feel and mouth feel linger on for hours, if the tea is right.

This brick is good, but not outstanding. It has a nice aroma, but I think the focus was more on the packaging than the tea. I do not care much about a pretty box, I just want something nice to drink!

Too bad for me, this years Naka prices seem far higher than before.

Dry – Tart fruits, honeyed and faintly greenwood notes (bitterness).
Wet – Sweet (honeyed), fruity, stonefruit?, orange peel, plummy, mineral and bitter floral-fruit notes. This later evolves into a more invasive Zhu (Bamboo scented) perfumy note, maybe even sandal wood.
Liquor – Dull Gold(no clear liquor) and have a spice? scent to it.

Initial steeps 1-2 (maybe 3rd) Plenty floral honey notes with a muted sweetness that follows it. The mouth feel is thick, but in a ‘waxy’ spectrum of thickness, almost like getting chap-stick in your tongue. The middle develops a savory notes as it goes down that linger a bit into the finish, but develops a floral bitterness after it washes away. The second and third steep have more fruity notes up front with a similar finish.

Middle steeps 4-5 Initial notes are floral bittersweet and floral honey with the same muted honey sweet, but once it starts to develop the fruity notes it also develops this green wood note combined with a bamboo frangrance/sandal wood perfumy note; it is still sort of pleasant, but definitelly more invasive than the previous notes. The finish stays fairly similar with some of tha perfumy/wood note. The thickness is still in there, the savory note however is playful and only apparent sometimes since it is mostly taken over by the wood and floral notes.

Final steeps 5-6+ Although I was starting to disagree with it during the 4-5th steeps, I could still enjoy most of it, but now the Floral bitterness is most of the notes with some honey that it is immediately followed by the perfumy note that still reminds me of a young Zhu/bamboo stored Sheng that has that Sandal wood perfume/incense character to it.

Final Notes
This notes hold the possibility of developing into really pleasant notes 10-15 years, but I don’t think I have the dedication to wait for this one, I’d rather focus on others. I’ll keep this brick around to see if it improves, but I’ll gladly ‘lose it’ if I need more space.

Did you get any cooling/cold sensations from this brick?

JC

I did get a bit of cooling, but It may have been that normal sensation you get after you drink something hot in a cold place. I’ll drink it again this week and confirm it.

JC

Bellmont, I tried it again over the weekend. There is a slight cooling sensation on the chest, very faint but it is there. I still dont like the actual notes yet, I’ll probably try to age it for two-three years in a humid environment to see what happens.

bellmont

Nice, sounds like a plan (aging). Thanks for touching base on the cooling.

JC

Yeah. My experience with Naka is very limited and all on the mid aged side, so I’m not sure what to expect on the younger side of it. So I’m hoping this now ‘weird’ notes will turn into what I like about the mid-aged examples.

I would like to find another example of Young Naka, so if you stumble into something let me know!

JC

Thanks for this! I’ll check that out for sure. I want to know what it is supposed to taste like when young, since this one I have from CWS tastes very ‘particular’ :P
