This morning’s shu. The brick is made of quality leaf picked from high mountains in Menghai County during the early spring season (Ming Qian Cha). Considering that this is a brick, it seems quite easy to pick off material to use in the tea session. Chocolate brown (after 9 years of aging in China) whole leaves mixed with pieces and stems. After a 5 second rinse the 10 second infusion produces a clear mahogany colored liquor. Very pleasant sweet, earthy sip with a hint of spice and a creamy essence. The aroma is rich and full. Good for at least five very flavorful infusions. Found at Tea Spring.
