The 46&2 cake is pure early 2013 Spring gushu Jingmai material, stored for one year in Jingmai, then pressed in the Spring of 2014. Sweet, thick, and fragrant, the tea has already got a little bit of age. Much smoother than most of the teas from our 2014 production.

This is delicious creamy fruityness. Much less hay than many jingmais I’ve had.
Thank you Cheri for letting me try this one! I got a sample from her right after it sold out on the site (to neither of our knowledge), so had been waiting for an occasion to treat myself to the sample :P
Wonderful and complex and very enjoyable. Thankfully there are enough good Jingmais I am not in tears at how good this is though! It’s peaches and stone fruit with a creamy aftertaste, and it goes down easy but lingers.
Flavors: Cream, Peach
Dry – Sweet, fruity, refreshing, buttery?, bitter floral and slightly nutty.
Wet – Warm sugar sweetness with very apparent tobacco and some faint smoke, fruits, cream, floral and nutty.
Liquor – Light amber to Amber.
This notes is a summary of two separate sessions in porcelain gaiwan
The first steep in both sessions were sweet and mellow with a fast overtake of the tobacco notes up front. As it went down, the texture was thick/creamy while still wearing the tobacco notes, yet it feels sweeter with fruity and nutty notes.
Following steeps switch to a tobacco front with the sweetness coming in second together with bitter-tobacco and bittersweet floral notes and some nutty and herbaceous hints up front. As it goes down, it has a thick and almost creamy texture, but has some minor astringency to it. The fruity and floral notes a more apparent as the liquor washes down, yet will continue to hold the tobacco notes.
Final steeps are about the same in terms of the notes you find and the order, but much more mellowed down and a refreshing finish easier to detect.
I liked this one, It has strong tobacco notes, but is not overwhelming. I’d say this is definitely stronger than the Repave, but WAY gentler than a Xiaguan the same age would be and has a lasting Huigan.
Flavors: Creamy, Medicinal, Sweet, Tobacco
So this was a sample from the lovely and wonderful MzPriss.
At first I didn’t smell the tobacco, but once it was pointed out, I picked it up right away. I do enjoy this one, but I didn’t fall in love. So while I’m quite happy, I went with other White2s in today’s order. :)
I did Sary’s combo method for this. The liquor is pale yellow and the aroma to me is almost completely tobacco. Not a strong overwhelming tobacco, but that is the main aroma to me. This is quite sweet and fairly smooth, especially for its age, but I also taste tobacco with a very slight bitterness and no astringency.
It will interesting to see how this turns out in a few years. Just for fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oVBvxA0mm0
An awesome 2014 pu’er! Starts off very smooth and milky. After a few infusions there are pear notes, steamed leaf, charred earth, vegetal and sweet. A little astringency is present in the later steepings. In addition, 46 & 2 has lots of party time pu’er pump to it! I love the smoothness, the flavor notes and the wild tea ride it took me on!

Another sample from Paul at White 2 Tea. I will let their website say it: “Sweet, thick, and fragrant, the tea has already got a little bit of age. Much smoother than most of the teas from our 2014 production.” This is the smoothest Sheng I have ever drank. Expensive, but it would be worth every cent!!!
