It’s a sheng puerh kind of afternoon and today I’m dipping into a fresh cake of Demon Slayer. I think the 2018 pressing was pretty slept on; the unique combination of punchy lemon rind notes with vegetal bell pepper undertones isn’t something I’d have thought I’d enjoy but I love it dearly. This more recent pressing really channels a lot of those same flavours, though more sweetly lemon in the early steeps before shifting into the more pithy lemon zest I’ve experienced from the 2018 cake when it was younger. I’m enjoying the more green and astringent vibe it’s settling into as I hit the climax of the session – never too much for me, as someone who usually opts out of vegetal and bitter flavours.
