Verdant Reserve Club – May

To present only one tea from Haixintang does not do justice to their venerable workshop. Our hope is that by presenting two very different teas from the same year and workshop, you will be able to see how processing technique alters the flavors of the leaf while similarities are there to be discovered.

The 2006 shu is packed with that delicious cooling camphor aroma and notes of pine forest. The body is surprisingly thick and full of refined caramel notes, while moving towards juicier more refreshing textures in later steepings. Fresh sweet mint flavor engages the palate while being beautiful balanced by darker notes. Many of the intense elements of the sheng are present, but counterbalanced, making this a great side-by-side comparison tasting.
