Instantly became one of my favorite shou chas in my cupboard. It’s in league with Green Miracle by Yunnan Sourcing and Brown Sugar by White2Tea, for sure, but it cuts differently in flavor profile, being a bit more mellow and hanging on just a bit to the fermented character, being a bit woody and earthy but certainly sweet and clean. This tea produces many steepings out past a dozen. I find it a bit hard to fairly classify specific flavor notes, but if I had to select an ideal weather for this tea, it’d be 50-60ºF and raining while the other shous I listed might be more well suited to more wintry weather. Great value for money, possibly besting the cost effectiveness of the aforementioned YS and W2T puerhs.

Eau Claire, WI native and current UW student living in Madison. My hometown had a tea shop that got me into tea before I went off to college to learn from talking to experts in Nashville and Madison, particularly the owner of Macha Tea Company. My tastes change with the seasons, but I love sheng and shou pu-erh, rock oolongs, Taiwanese oolongs, Yunnan blacks, and Japanese greens.

My love of tea is balanced by my love of good coffee (I have lists of the best coffee shops for Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Madison, Nashville, and Chicago) and my love of chemistry and environmental sciences, my fields of study in college.
