I really enjoyed this tea is was medium thickness but a nice mild bitterness similar to coffee or bittersweet chocolate and a nice oily texture. This reminded me of rishi’s maiden which I liked a lot and actually wanted to purchase this tea as I can see myself drinking a lot of it especially since its lower on caffeine.
Unfortunately this is the first tea I have liked enough to warrant a purchase from jalam but they want $24/100g cake plus shipping… So working out the puernomics since it is in cake form I will loose 10% to dust upon breaking up the cake leaving 90 g or ~3oz so for $30 with shipping it will roughly work out to $10/oz for shupu! Thats insane especially for an autumn harvest. Sorry for bringing money into it because I really like this tea but for that money im sure I could buy a bunch of dayi ripes that have the same qualities if not better.
