This is going to be a very micro note. I’ve had these little rocks sitting around for about a year and finally got around to breaking into one (too many teas to try).
Jeez is the compression tight. You end up with masticated leaf and powder largely, but that’s to be expected.
Flavours are sharply bitter but fall off fast to a pleasant sugarcane huigan. The scent of the leaf is powerful and fruity (like a good sharp tart cherry or jam/preserve).
The energy is instantly felt and lasting flavour lingers. There’s good sheng-jing like a sharp Riesling. The mouthfeel is smooth and it coats the throat nicely. The lid on my zhuni pot is sticky.
Strongly recommended young sheng as long as you’re okay with masticated leaf.
For the price, if you’re a fan of the DaXueShan character, this exhibits it well. Yummy stuff that’ll definitely get your caffeine spiking.
A great warm up and energiser in the cold winter mornings.
Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Cherry, Jam, Sugarcane
