92 Tasting Notes
Typical Hongcha notes and sweetness with little and rather untypical maltyness. Pleasant bitterness and astringency, as often to be found at Sheng Pu’erhs.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Malt, Spicy, Sweet
Super heavy and full-bodied with an very spicy sweetness and subliminal bitterness which numbs the tongue. Wet-storage character but still a super strong tea and a very relaxed qi.

Mellow, multifaceted profile, light and fresh with an undeniable wild origin, this tea is lighter than its 2016 version (Tea Club only) and more similar to the 2017 Secret Forest Wild: A tame and calm wild Sheng.

Flavors: Bitter, Fruity, Sweet
At first very spicy and nutty, which turns to a slightly bitter floral note. Somewhat astringent and very fresh.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Floral, Nutty, Spicy
Very light and elegant for a Sheng and more so for a wild Sheng. This one is of a very different character as the other wild Shengs this year but nonetheless very lovely since it has a long lasting, cooling fruitiness combined with a light, relaxing Qi.

Flavors: Bitter, Cherry, Fruity
As the 2016 version this one comes with a plesant and strong bitter and wild flavor, but more fruity and heavy as last year. Again a strong and relaxing Qi – one of the best Shengs ever!

Flavors: Bitter, Cherry, Fruity, Heavy, Smooth, Sweet
Bitter-sweet and very fruity ith a longlasting aftertaste like berrys and nice, decent Qi. Later on the bitterness turns down and becomes more sweet, like tart sour cheryys. You get really much for your money!

Buttery-smooth, very light tastewise but with a heavy underlying strength. Very strong and relaxing Qi and with a lot of endurance!
