Nannuo sheng sold by Farmerleaf is not the most exciting tea, it is just very good. The clear highlight is its mouthfeel that’s among the most oily and smooth ones I’ve tried. Such a full bodied tea with no abrasiveness is a clear mark of quality material and processing.

The flavour profile is mostly sweet and floral with quite a lot of higher notes. Notes of cream, dry grass, thistles, pollen and alpine meadows appear throughout. Additionally, I picked up some fleeting aromas of orange zest, nuts and cooked leaf vegetables. There is a cooling aftertaste and a warming body sensation as well, neither of which makes the tea stand out in particular.

This is one of the best teas I can imagine as a young sheng introduction to newer tea drinkers.

Currently, I am a PhD student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and only recently (in 2017) started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
