It’s a very light and smooth shou puerh, which is so light and delicate, yet dark and tasty… I think that I can finally convince my Mom that although it is as dark as night, it really has no caffeine and will be a great before-bed tea.
I really enjoy the aroma most of all… very sweet, almost like baked bread. It’s very smooth and balanced. As always, difficult to describe in terms of foods and flavors that are familiar, but I believe that this qualifies as a tremendously smooth and easy entrance into the world of shou puerhs, and would be great for new tea drinkers and connoisseurs alike.
Bada is an area familiar to me for sheng puerh, and I know that the raw materials are good, so while I’m surprised that more punch isn’t jumping out of this leaf, something about the region, Jeff’s sourcing, and knowing that a robust underlying leaf brings me comfort and enhances the cup!
