My (uneducated) thoughts:

A very nice, calming cake. It’s got a tiny bit of age too it, so the bitterness I normally associate with newer shengs is not really present. I keep waiting for it to get astringent or bitter, but it doesn’t come. Not exactly very sweet, but it has a really nice mouthfeel. The thick broth rolls down the tongue nicely, warms the belly and chest and makes me noticably calmer and singularly focused (on the tea).

By the 5th infusuon, I’m not noticing any big changes, still silky smooth and enjoyable. Maybe some slightly fruity/sweet aftertones?

In summary, a very pleasant semi-aged puerh tea. Still has many similarities to your average sheng, but could make a nice daily drinker. I used about 6g in my 75ml pot, so maybe I should add more leaf next time?

Tea lover since birth; recent convert to Japanese greens, Taiwanese Oolongs, and Chinese Puerh (and everything in-between).

Loves obscure vinyl, dark humor, technology, and most nerdy things. If you have similar tastes or enjoy a post, feel free to comment/message. Open to trades; particularly puerh!
