After the early morning stint with a young sheng I have now moved to the opposite extreme. I am now sipping a 1999 sheng that is trying to be shou. It is a half fermented raw pu’er with around 17 years of age: 1999 Hua Yuan “Jing Brand” raw pu’er from Yunnan Sourcing. A very clean and pleasant tea that was very well stored with the only light wet piling aspect coming through from the wet leaves and not transpiring to the liquor. Next week I am buying a cake for further storage.
