This tea tastes mostly like Yiwu character to me, if I had to pinpoint a region. Base material is excellent. It’s very soft in the mouth, with a medium-thick viscosity, and oily mouthfeel. Flavor-wise it is subtle and buttery, but to be honest, when I sample younger teas of this quality, I’m really looking more for body effects than flavor notes. This tea quickly coats the mouth, then sits in the back of the throat where it lingers. Qi comes on quickly, and is pleasant. I can’t really think of anything to nitpick about this tea. For a young tea it has all the characteristics I could hope for. I do agree that the subtle beauty of this tea could be lost on someone new to Sheng Pu’er, but why not introduce them to the good stuff?
