Sheng Yiwu snob alert. This tea was another sample from Paul at white 2 Tea. This tea is a blend of both spring and fall material. The color is a beautiful golden bronze. The first steeping was a bit timid to me. However, by the third steeping it really had hit its stride. This tea has everything I love in a Sheng from Yiwu. It has both great kuwei [pleasant bitterness] and a touch of background astringency and the combination of the two was very mellow. If you like young sheng pu’er tea that isn’t overpowering, you should give this tea a strong consideration.

I have been a tea drinker almost all of my life. In 2008 I was able to accompany my wife to a conference she had in Shanghai. At one of the dinners I was introduced to the Nectar of the Gods – Pu’er and I have been hooked ever since.
