From Mandala Tea

Another classic Haiwan offering! Composed of large leaves this tea is reddish-brown tea leaf color, deep red infusion color, a unique aroma and rich flavor. If you enjoy large-leaf ripe teas, you’ll be sure to get a charge out of this one!

This is a nice brick of younger Shou pu’er. I have actually picked up a brick of this for myself and plan on drinking some of it now for sure, but this is one that I think could age decently. Most people are confused by the word “musty” in relation to tea, but in high quality pu’ers there is an indescribable sweet mustiness that is hard to mistake. Needless to say it already possesses some of these qualities. The leaf size is large and it brews up lighter than some lower grade pu’ers that are so commonly found from most American tea companies. Sweet notes of honey remain even through the strongest brews. And of course, make sure to brew this one multiple times.

To sum up: Nothing too out of the ordinary but a nice, sweet and promising brick of Shou.

This is a nice larger leafed shou. It definitely has some of the honey notes that are talked about in the description. I have also found some floral aspects in it and an almost vanilla-ish spice to it, if that makes any sense. I think this tea reminds me more of a mood or atmosphere than any particular flavor. I have found it to be surprisingly complex and subtle. It is on the lighter/clearer side of shous which is making it perfect for drinking on a sunny autumn day such as we are having in Boston today.

I have this tea but didn’t taste yet.

It’s definitely interesting. Has a different character than a lot of the other shous I’ve had. I attribute this to the fact that it is made from a higher grade of leaf. I plan on getting some other big-leaf shous in the future to see how it plays out in other recipes.
