From Liquid Proust Teas

2008 Ming Jing is made with Youle (攸乐正山) leaves. It is categorized as a xiaoshu (小树) product within the CYH range.

Having been aged 7 years now, it’s only left with a hint of smokiness.

When brewed, it’s light yellow in colour but has very strong tea smell.

The taste of the brew is light floral sweetness with good sweet huigan (回甘). It’s like having a little bit of gummy bear in your mouth. In earlier brews, there were some dashu (大树) taste characteristic until about 4th brew before. Beyond that, the xiaoshu taste becomes dominant. Although there is a hint of bitterness when soaked at later brews, overall the tea will feel creamy.

On the nose, spicy sweet notes are noticeable: horehound, sassafras, cola, and root beer. Dark molasses notes with hardwood and peanut shell rounding it off. In a preheated gaiwan, dry leaf emitted notes of ripe stewed plum, gummy fruitiness, and sweet hay.

On the palate, arrival is pinewood – soft, sweet woodiness with resinous notes. Body is relatively thick, but overall flavor is muted, developing hay, wood, and resin flavors. Gummy fruitiness starts to pop after sappy astringency arrives and dissipates. Aftertaste has nice plummy fruitiness. A little cocoa powder shows up well into the aftertaste.

A good experience; one that needs your full attention to appreciate.
