First time trying Yunnan Sourcing tea (previously only ordered from Teavivre).
It reminds me very much of the TV sheng that I had reviewed previously. It’s resoundingly….average. I’m getting some generic sheng flavor and aroma, but the bitterness overwhelms any nuance. Perhaps with a few more steeps the petrol notes will go away and I’ll get some smokiness.
Overall, not bad as an introduction to pu’erh, and perhaps as a daily drinker, when I don’t want something special, but it’s certainly not something special.
All that being said, the QPR (Quality-Price Ratio) is decent at $9 per brick.
Flavors: Floral, Vanilla
