Recent Tasting Notes

I enjoyed the cake in 2016 but it didn’t leave any notable impression other than it was a mellow balanced daily drinker at a great price.

The Y.S description says the Nan Jian Tulin is similar to Xiaguan productions in their choice of raw materials, blending and processing techniques.

I have a different Nan Jian Tulin on my wish list and also a Xiaguan production. Two ripes to compare.

Agreed, our experience with a full cake of this shou was quite similar.


Good to know. :-)

Overall this is a very nice tea. It started out bittersweet with a fair amount of fermentation flavor. It’s hard to say exactly but the fermentation lasted about four or five steeps and the bitterness perhaps a little longer. The fermentation flavor was what I would call clean, no unpleasant taste or fishy taste there. The tea gradually transformed into a nice sweet ripe puerh. I really failed to pin down the exact nature of the sweet note. This tea is also supposed to be organic. I always feel it is best to take organic claims from China with as they say a grain of salt. On the other hand, this is from Yunnan Sourcing and I trust them so I believe it to be organic. You can never be sure however.

I steeped this in a 180ml Jian Shui Tea Pot witih 13.5g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.

Boiling 13 g 6 OZ / 180 ML
