From JalamTeas

Jinuo Mountain is located out of the Menghai-Bulang tea zone and above the Mekong River in southern Yunnan. The Jinuo are one of the original tea harvesters and cultivators producing teas that regularly featured on the Tea Horse Road as well as further north into the ancient Han Chinese hubs. In zones between 600-1700 metres the Jinuo grow tea bushes, mid-sized tea trees, and of course their ancient tea trees. Vegetal, slightly rough, but immensely drinkable, this Jinuo autumn 2013 tea has already had time to age over a year, taking a bit of the edge away from the tea. This is a tea that is good to drink right now.

Thank you for the sample Cheri

But MEH…this sheng is not for me. It started out extremely smokey, which, I don’t generally have a problem with but it pretty much overwhelmed the first steep. The following steeps were less smokey but mostly a one note tea and that note is “pleasant bitterness”. Which don’t get me wrong, I like an assertive, even aggressive sheng at times. I just wish there was some sweetness, fruit flavor, or floral aroma to balance it out. Not a terrible tea, just not right for me!

Tealizzy

Whoa! I totally love this one! Well, I guess to each their own! ;)

Stephanie

Let me send you the rest of what Cheri sent me then. bleh

Tealizzy

Sure, I’ll take it! Haha! You might not like February’s tea either then cuz it reminds me of that one.

Stephanie

What was the February one called? I’ll make a note to save this one for you!

Tealizzy

The February one is what I just got in the mail yesterday, called Nan Nuo Mountain Zhu Ling Village.

I could smell this tea the minute I opened the mailing envelope. It has a smoky aroma, even the dry leaf does. The dry leaf is a very pretty silver green. Here’s a pic, but it doesn’t really show the silver effect well:

When I brewed it up, there was an old man tobacco smell. No other way to describe that. ;)

The tea had a warming effect on me from the first sip…interesting. I gong fu-brewed it as usual. About the third steep or so, it tasted like grilled veggies, which turned into a grilled meat flavor. According to JalamTeas, they make a soup out of this tea with garlic…I can see why that would go well together. The grilled veggie/meat flavor was kind of good, and I’m a vegetarian!

This is a tea that I probably would have hated when I first started drinking loose leaf, but I really like it! It does sweeten up like most shengs, but in much later steeps. The smoky grill flavor is nice for a cold day like today.

This is an interesting tea! It has some camphor aromas that cleared up my nose, some black tea elements in the flavors, a touch of green bitterness which gives me an awakening sensation, and a touch of tannin to pucker my mouth. I can’t say it is delightful, but it certainly is interesting.
