A lovely warming pu-erh from a village that I have not explored very much.

The aroma is sweet with notes of rapini, peas, acorn, passion fruit, and green peppers. It smells a bit like a cold-brewed sencha in its current youthful state.

The mouthfeel is light, airy, and velvety, but with a strong presence, especially in the pungent and protracted sensations after drinking, which are cooling, expansive, numbing and floral.

The taste is bitter and vegetal above all, with the second half of the session bringing progressively more sweetness. There is a refreshing juiciness to it, and sometimes reminds me of beer (such as a lagered ale). I also found flavours of apples, leafy vegetables, honey and herbs. Additionally, the incredibly fragrant aftertaste carries notes of musk, fern, alcohol, apple leaves and more.

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
