A crisp, clean, refreshing, strong vegetal unfermented pu’er! It’s not grassy and has no fermentation or smokey notes. Very little astringency that only appears in the last steepings. Jalam even recommends you can go heavy leaf here to get more “bite” since this pu’er doesn’t get dry, which would make tea lovers who want a strong flavor very happy.
What I like about this tea was it got better and better with each steeping. It has a really strong green pepper vegetal, fresh off the hot vine flavor, that mellows out with each steeping. Meng Zhr has a “heathly” feel to it too, like drinking juiced veggies in tea form.
I had a long session with this tea before a job interview, and wow I was wired!
