207 Tasting Notes
Wow. This tea is incredible. I’m so glad to have finally found and brewed a young sheng pu-erh that blows my mind. It’s so delicate, rich and delightful. I’m only on the second steep and I just can’t believe how good this is compared to the other handful of pu-erhs I’ve tried. It’s got an amazing blend of raisins, leather, herbs, spice, cotton, chamomile, dry wood, and sweet flower blossom. The texture is impeccable. And the qi this tea carries has my head floating in the clouds. Wow.
I brewed the last 10 gram of this I had in a 6 oz session. The liquor that resulted is a vibrantly clear yellow-green, with a dense perfume of lilac blossom, hibiscus, and sesame oil. A bit of blue crab meat scents through. The mouthfeel isn’t as dense and juicy as I would like, but this is a nice light cup with lots of floral character.
