8 Tasting Notes
Too smoky for me. I would call it a medium roasted in terms of flavors. Peachy in the aftertaste which is preatty long lasting. The size of the leaves is not very uniform, but I would say that in general is medium size for a Da hong pao.
Flavors: Peach, Smoke
Incredible tea! At least to my taste. A good complex taste, fairly old puerh. Woody and incense notes. Will last for a good number of infusions and if you buy the whole brick it can be affordable per gram.
Flavors: Wet Wood, Wood
For me it was insipid, I tried Yixing and Gaiwan. The color was yellow and a bit of green. I Liked more the 2015 “Bang Dong” Yunnan Sourcing . I simply don’t know how other guys here in steepster got orange color out of this tea… I did not get fruity hints like other young sheng out there, only vegetal, but in general insipid.
Flavors: Earth, Vanilla
I tasted this tea from a sample I received from Yunnan Sourcing. In the first session, I liked it a lot, but in the following sessions, I noticed wet, moldy, metal, flavors that I don’t usually enjoy. I gaiwan gong fu style with flash brews. When increasing the steeping times the moldy flavors felt more prominent to me.
Flavors: Plums, Wet Earth
