Gave 10g a try on the basis of description and reviews. Crisp, pure taste with hints of Tiawanese High Mountain Oolong. Gonna order two cakes: one to enjoy now, one to age.
This Sheng Puerh is a great pleasure to drink. It is clearly young but this goes well with the crisp and pure taste. It is a true hybrid: the flavor is more Sheng Puerh while the perfume reminds very much of a Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong. Can’t wait to see how it will age (although my cake will certainly not last that long).
A combination of honey sweetness and candied plums pairs perfectly with deep mossy notes. For me, I experience a brightness reminiscent of sun-dried cherry tomatoes. Most importantly the tea looks good, tastes good and feels good too!
Brewed 6g in 120ml yixing. As expected, this tea delivers a completely new experience. After drink sheng after sheng it's nice to find something that stands out beyond the nerdy, intricate notes of most pu erh. This tea is full of sweet and savoury flavours that are not only super accessible but maintain a complex aura. Its truly unique and absolutely worth it!
This is a tea I’m really close to declaring as one of my favorites. It’s very unique, has a sweet and spicy jam like aroma and flavor. It can go strong for many infusions, a very lovely experience! This is probably the first sheng cake I want to buy a tong of!
