Nice pleasant smell of dry leaves in the hot gaiwan. Than after wake up, the color of the wet leaves shows better the blend (purple- brownish- and green leaves mixed).
The broth is gold-yellow, with gold-dust particles.
Wet leaves smell: light fruity, and meadow flowers, pleasant.
Taste: light fruity sourness, which astringency gives a vibrating front mouthfeel. Bitterness as well pleasant and brings immediate aftertaste. The broth medium thick in content, good salvia producing aftertaste.
Effect: has a good uplifting energy, brings a good mood.
In body: has a warming effect and the feeling of warmth goes from heart to the hands. Stimulates digestion well.
Can stand for decent 10 steeps. An interesting and complex blend.

I can recommend for fresh young sheng puer fans, who likes the slight fruity sourness and vibrating mouthfeel.

Flavors: Fireplace, Floral, Flowers, Fruity, Pleasantly Sour

My ever expanding list of obsessions, passions, and hobbies:

Meditation, tea, cooking, traveling, spirituality, plants, East Asian ceramics, health, animals,

I drink most of the time:
young sheng puer
shu pu’er
aged sheng pu’er
and as well:
green tea
red tea
herbal teas.


Personal usual brewing methods:

For the tastings use good mineral water :
NORDA (from Italy: 62 mg/L mineral content [55 ppm]) – for young sheng puers, green teas, white teas
and Lajosforrás (spring water from the Pilis Mountain, Hungary: 206 ppm) – for aged shengs and shu puers.
I use a 100 ml gaiwan for tasting.
Leaf to water ratios (depends on the tea):
- pu’er: 4-4,5 g for 100 ml
- green tea: 2-4 g for 100 ml
- white tea: 3-4 g for 100 ml

For young shengs and white teas brewing starts on 85C, than on later steeps goes up to 90C and finally to 100C, gradually through 10 steeping. Average 10 steeping to go through the young shengs.
For shu puers and aged old shengs: 100C through all the session
