First let me just say I am new to Pu’er tea. I’ve tried some other Pu’er from misty peak teas that I loved, but this might be my favorite. It has a soft flavor, and fills the drinker with peace and tranquility. Truly an uplifting tea.

Meh, just not my thing I guess. I did my first gong fu styled brewing with my new tiny teapot and my new teacups. I tried three steepings of it and every one tasted the same… vegetal, almost flavorless. Maybe my pallet is just too unrefined but it tasted like grass-water.
Flavors: Grass, Mineral, Vegetal
With the heavenly sounds of the Guzheng playing in the background, I decided to write a review for this tea. It truly looks beautiful as a soft compression brings out the beauty in each and every tea leaf. Truly, a piece of art to look at. The soft compression allows me to break off 6 grams while maintaining the integrity of the leaves – always a good sign. I briefly wash the tea and pour 100 mL (+/- 5 mL or so) of water into the gaiwan and watch the two mediums intertwine. I feel a great tranquility during the steeping as the beautiful tea leaves work their magic along with the sounds of the guzheng. The wet leaves have a soft delightful aroma that I cannot describe, but have found it common among yiwus. The soup has a bright golden colour and exhibits no cloudiness whatsoever. The processing was, clearly, very well done and in a clean environment. The soup is thick in the mouth with a charming mouthfeel. Vegetal, citrus notes and a slight smokiness seem to come to mind when drinking the soup, but perhaps what I find most enjoyable is the teas softness. I find that this tea is very enjoyable and is comparable to some gushus out there that cost 2-3 times more. I stand behind this tea. 85/100
P.S I will definitely be drying one of the leaves and adding it to my scrapbook!
Flavors: Citrus, Smoke, Vegetal
Very good sheng pu’er! Tough would be on whether I like this 2014/2013 autumn or Misty Peak Teas’ 2012 autumn. Both are good, though very different.
This 2014 autumn is quite complex, yet consistent through each cup and infusion. 15 infusion I got great flavor contrast between a dry, earthy forest and hazelnut flavor, with a tangy citrus peach/persimmon notes, all with a very good thick texture of cream. I found at the 3rd steeping the flavor got very crisp and delicious, with the 9th steeping being fantastic as well.
This sheng also has a power of getting you to sip slowly, enjoying the cup and the lingering aftertaste.

Hmm, I got 15 infusions, but I’m sure I can squeak out a few more later in the day!
This autumn 2013 pressing is delightful. From a cake, citrus aromatics arise, with beautiful clear orange color when brewed, and gentle but deep flavors. Absolutely stellar sheng with just a touch of bitterness on the finish which leads to a salivating sweetness. Really good.
I really planned on letting this Sheng age, well I did for 5 days before curiosity got the better of me. The taste, to me, was pure heaven. I truly wish I had the ability to explain what subtle under tones this tea has. Since I do not have that ability , all I can say is the taste of this tea is a true joy on the tongue. I loved the consistency of this tea. After 7 steepings, the intensity never changed, it never grew bolder nor did it get weaker. The flavor however did change just ever so slightly with a nice hint of smoke coming out by steeping 5. All said, my bing will never get that chance to age, it will be gone in a couple of months and I will definitely have to buy more.
