First time trying Yunnan Sourcing tea (previously only ordered from Teavivre).

It reminds me very much of the TV sheng that I had reviewed previously. It’s resoundingly….average. I’m getting some generic sheng flavor and aroma, but the bitterness overwhelms any nuance. Perhaps with a few more steeps the petrol notes will go away and I’ll get some smokiness.

Overall, not bad as an introduction to pu’erh, and perhaps as a daily drinker, when I don’t want something special, but it’s certainly not something special.

All that being said, the QPR (Quality-Price Ratio) is decent at $9 per brick.

Flavors: Floral, Vanilla

Boiling 0 min, 30 sec 7 g 7 OZ / 210 ML
