From JalamTeas

Region: Menghai County, southwestern Yunnan
Type: Mid-High Altitude Puerh (1500 metres)
Harvest: Autumn 2013
Harvesters: Hani

This is a great pick-up tea in the middle of the afternoon with its powerful and heady flavours that power into the blood. Hani people often make powerful longer infusion teas in the afternoon to prevent drowsiness and in some cases actually slow cook tea leaves to create darker and more potent servings.

puerh from this morning, courtesy of the lovely dexter Now, i’m not a huge fan of sheng. They’re more hit or miss for me than shou, though i have found a couple i really love (wild monk, i’m looking at you!). This one is sort of middle of the road for me. it’s too shengy for me, without that sort of sweetness that i do enjoy from sheng’s. Happy i got the chance to go at it this morning, but i’ll likely swith to a shou this afternoon before going back to another sheng :)

Tame for a young sheng

My first of jalam offerings wasnt sure what to expect so I braced myself used cooler water (195-205) and all flash steepings. The aroma was quite impressive after the i heated the gaiwan and through the first rinse. None of the harshness I usually associate with young sheng, this was slightly floral not like rose or jasmine but like a white tea. It was just barely sweet and barely astringent dainty and faint. The liquor was light on color and flavor i suspect because this was a autumn plucking but very interesting indeed. It was slightly fruit almost like some yiwu I have tasted but lighter and less tannic.

The complexity surprised me unfortunately I had to leave before I got a proper session so I will come back to this tea but very interested to uncover all the ethereal qualities I caught a glimpse of. Before I left I boiled water threw it on and prepared to leave so a good 5-10 mins must have past and even then the cup was only slightly bitter, almost all other of young shengs would have tasted like petrol soaked in plastic had I put them through that torture test. Not sure if thats a good or bad sign to be so asymmetrical as I have heard many a people claim young harshness shows it will age well and tolerable young sheng is a sign of poor quality tea meant to only be drunk immediately. As I live in a dry climate I’d rather pay for aged or young tea that is immediately consumable and enjoyable anyhow I don’t really trust myself to age anything but just a interesting note.

I will surely use more leaf and time with my next session. This tea but me in a fairly good mood and was rather easy on the stomach. I would recommend it yiwu palates and/or newer sheng pu erh drinkers as there seemed to be lighter friendly tones from my short experience with this tea.

I am very interested in this tea club. I have had one that fared well with me and I have a Bulang sample to try as well. Nice to see your notes on this.

I am not familiar with naka so I couldn’t comment on the profile but in my short experience I prefer spring plucking with thicker bodies so not sure if I will enjoy this club as it seems most are Autumn but the fragrance was rather nice change it surely didn’t smell like your typical slightly sour wet leaves.

Really nice sheng. It has some good punch to it and the dry, sweet astringency, lingers inside the mouth. Taste like a cross of a Bada & Yiwu mountains. Very very pleasant.

Love this sheng! It has a wonderful sweetness that comes on soon…like 3rd steep! I upped my leaf to 7g this time and I’m definitely feeling it! A bit tea drunk, but also a good energy that will hopefully get me going on this lazy day. I want to get some weeding done!
