From Yunnan Sourcing

This tea cake is made entirely from Spring 2012 material from Ba Da mountain. It has been aged in Menghai for two years and so it now produces a golden-colored liquor that is fragrant and slightly citrusy with an astringent aftertaste that mellows into a subtle sweetness. Bitter yet refreshing!

Sen Zhi Kui (森之馈), meaning ‘Gift of the Forest’, is a small label that is passionate about producing great tasting teas with distinct characteristics.

An inexpensive raw pu-erh tea which is ready for drinking now or could be stored for further developments in complexity.

Working this one up tonight.
After reading the vendor description I think I am ready to go. I picked off 9 grams and broke out the Yixing for this one. dry leaf looks nice and there is no “heavy” compression on this one which means it will age faster. A 5 second rinse and an almost damp hay aroma to it. First steep 10 seconds and it brews a nice darker yellow brew. It has a bit of an edge to it without being too harsh. It has a light floral semi-sweet note that coats the mouth and tongue with some viscosity to it. It does bring for a sweet honey plum note at the end. I still think it has room to grow but should turn out well.

It gets a little more astringent as it cools in the cup.

I wish I could drink puerh in the evening but the caffeine keeps me awake!

mrmopar

Yeah sometimes I drink it too late at night myself.

Stephanie

no caffeine after dinnertime for me!

I revisited this one while serving it to friends. I was surprised by how much sweeter and richer it became after just 8 months of storage.

tanluwils I think I need to revisit this one. Thanks for the update.

tanluwils

Yeah, that’s what I love about sheng. They keep transforming in ways that are still mysterious to me.

Change is good sometimes!
