From Teavivre

Origin: Hekai Mountain, Menghun, Menghai County, Yunnan Province, China

Plucking Standard:One bud with two leaves

Net Weight:200g

Dry Tea:Well-shaped, tight round cake covered with lots of white downy hairs

Aroma:High-mountain charm (Shan Yun)

Liquor:Bright golden yellow color

Taste:Rich in taste, it offers slightly bitterness but integrated with rock candy sweetness and quick huigan, producing saliva

Tea Bush:Menghai large-leaf species(50-80 years old)

Tea Garden:Mt. Hekai wild tea area

When sipping, it is very rich in taste, offers slightly bitter but quickly disappeared, yielding a strong sweet aftertaste and saliva production accompanied by the noticeable rock candy sweetness lingering in your throat. In addition, this raw hekai Pu-erh surprisingly endures through many tasty infusions. As you continue to brew it in the last few infusions, the bitterness will gradually faded to a sweeter note that slowly expands outward, which gives us a very pleasant experience.

Strong mineral note, a little bit of honeyed sweetness, and a little bit of generic “sheng-y” taste. No “green” or chlorophyl taste. It’s a little bit thick in the mouth, a little bit astringent, and there’s a little bit of lingering aroma in the mouth. Not much bitterness or potency of flavor.

It’s definitely easy drinking for a young sheng, but overall it’s just ok. I was expecting more potency and bitterness from a young Hekai tea. I’m interested to see what the “ancient tree” version will be like.
