From Tea Encounter

Yi Shan Mo lies in the Mansa region of Yiwu, in the six famous tea mountains. Teas in this region are famous for being smooth, sweet and for their pleasant aftertaste. Yiwu teas almost present no bitterness and they are easy to enjoy even when young.

This is a Spring tea made from ancient tea trees (Gushu). We find this tea a bit spicy, thick with a camphor-menthol notes. We really like the blend of flavours that this tea presents already and are very curious to see how this tea will age. It’s already showing some caramel-like sweetness which is likely to increase with time. We are very happy to offer this tea.

This is a fairly mellow, low-toned Yiwu sheng. Woody, forest floor dark feel mixed with plummy caramel sweetness. Body warmth and menthol cooling arrive quickly with the second steep. Later steeps become woody-bitter, lightly acidic-metallic and mouth-watering. The aftertaste is certainly the strength of this tea. It mostly a dry powdery, bittersweet violet with very long-lasting retronasal action. At times the aftertaste also presented with Juicy Fruit gum, honeydew-cucumber and blueberry skin florality — delightful. I’m not too drawn to this tea currently, but I could see it aging into a reliable daily drinker.
