This tea was picked in the Spring of 2015 from trees planted in the 1800’s. Being that it is hand-picked from old trees, instead of bushes like most teas, the flavors are very bold and sweet and smoother than one can imagine. One will notice floral notes that leave the mouth feeling very wet and the body uplifted, just like Spring. Spring harvest is the prized harvest of the year for its aging capabilities and sweet flavor notes.

I’ve never tasted Misty Peak before so I was incredibly curious as to what it tasted like. I mean, just look at it! It’s in the shape of two mountains! What a beautiful presentation.
The very first thing I noticed was the taste of cream this tea had. It had a faint buttery taste that was mouthwatering. As I continued my session with it floral notes opened up and made their-self present. It was a nice melody and a very soft and calming mixture. It had a very refreshing taste that lated through out my session with it.
Overall, I’d buy more of this tea. I would have to save up quite a bit for it, but it would be worth it. I can’t wait to keep exploring with Misty Peaks!

This was a fantastic pu’er, my first REAL brewing of sheng. Unfortunately, I started with much hotter water than was recommended, and I paid for it with bracing astringency in the early steeps and relatively few steeps. Once the astringency calmed down, I was greeted with an intensely sweet and fruity tea. The huigan lasted forever, and the flavors hovered between plum and apricot. Wonderful feeling from this tea, too, nicely euphoric, with a little silliness. I may revise the rating after getting a proper temperature steeping from the beginning, because the early bitterness, while pleasant, overwhelmed the rather more pleasant stone fruit flavors.
