This delicious shu offers a very pleasant mix of flavors – dates, spices and a gentle woodiness. The first two cups are dominated by a nice earthiness but the sweetness, fruitiness and spiciness build quickly throughout the following infusions. No fermentation flavors at all. Very warming cup which is full of complexity throughout the tea session. Solid longevity – good for many resteeps ( I enjoyed eight flavorful cups today). This session reminded me that Menghai Dayi definitely offers many smooth and rich shu puer productions.
