From Berylleb King Tea(ebay)

The teardrop is made from exquisite late spring tea leaves of Menghai tea plantations. It is well-balanced shape and marked by clear and sound leaf lines with white hairs. The tea has pure high aroma with fruit flavor and honey flavor, which will be better after stored for some time. It brews a bright yellow broth with a transient bitteness and lasting sweet aftertaste, fresh and mellow. The tea can be brewed for many times.

This one was weird. I bought it on a whim as part of a Berylleb tea order – should have stuck to Xiaguan tuos and factories I’ve actually heard of. Live and learn lol. It was pretty loosely compressed for a tuo, so I broke off 7.5g for my 120mL gaiwan. The dry leaf aroma was an inoffensive barnyard/hay aroma. Once rinsed, the leaves had a very strong menthol smell to them.

The tea in general was much more minty/menthol than any other young sheng I’ve had. It also brewed up a little bit darker than I would have expected a 2013 to brew. There was some bitterness to this tea which, in the first few steeps, was kind of unpleasant – not because it was too strong, as I love me some sheng with a bite, but it was just an odd bitter note. The tea did get a little bit better after the first few steeps, still lots of of menthol and some thick honey-like notes.

Not a particularly good tea, and a very unusual one as well. I probably won’t drink this tuo up anytime soon, but it might be interesting to revisit it as I hold onto it in the future. At least it was cheap if nothing else.
