Naka Ancient Tree Sheng
Spring 2018 Harvest
1700-1800 metres

A ‘bud-heavy’ beauty from ancient rtees from a region that our producer loves, Naka, this offering is a freshly caked 2018 spring sheng, bristling with fresh clean tones. The greater Meng Song region, in which Naka rests, is one of the highest Puerh growing regions in Yunnan, cresting close to 2400 metres, and rates as one of the most ancient sources of the leaf. What stands out in this particular Naka is the percentage of lighter coloured buds within the cake which adds some floral power to the offering. Naka, like the entire Meng Song mountain region generally is known for strength and even with this higher end bud content, still carries some of the wonderful inherent power in it.

This was one of the best teas I got to try at the Toronto Tea Festival this year, and since the price seemed right, I picked up a cake of this tippy sheng.

Tasting it today for the first time didn’t leave such a strong impression though. The tea doesn’t seem to stand out in any particular way. Nevertheless, it is quite tasty and balanced, which would make it suited for casual brews. The main flavours I noticed are the standard ones – heavy honey sweetness, hay, some herbal bitterness, florals like at a summer meadow and such. The body is medium and there is a decent astringency. Aftertaste is not too strong, but does last for quite a while. The tea also succeeded in waking me up properly after a heavy lunch.

So yeah, not bad, but not too memorable either.
