I’m a sheng over shou Pu’er person and I particularly like this type. It didn’t let me down. I had it before bed last night and unfortunately, it outlasted me. zzzzz. It still had a lot of flavor after the 15th steep. The dry leaves smell earthy, a pretty silver/gold/brown coloring. It began with stonefruit and apple notes which continued throughout. The apple got lighter as I progressed, it was loaded with many stonefruit notes, like apricots-peaches, slight honey-like notes and at the latter end of the infusions, floral notes became more pronounced. It’s pleasantly sweet but never got syrupy, became slightly but pleasantly astringent at the 9th steep. It had a long-lasting finish. Stayed with me until I brushed my teeth for bed :P.
