The teardrop is marked by slender and well-balanced shape, tight packed leaf lines, Tea leaves are fat and sturdy with white hairs.

I have received a sample from MrMopar and I’m going to review it during today and tomorrow.

I have done a quick rinse and I’m going to use flash steeps for this one. 5gr and boiling water (well, to be precise water just under the boiling point).

The first brew takes me around 5-7sec: The colour is orange/amber. The wet leaves smell like lemons or something like that. The taste is quite similar to the smell of the wet leaves, it has no bitterness or astringency, no smoke. It’s sweet and it has a touch of lemons (something cirtric).

The secod brew It’s with excatly the same pattern, boiling water, flash step: the wet leaves smells like the previous step. The colour of the infused ater it’s exactly the same as previously. SOme of the citric flavour has disapeared, now its more smooth, sweet. Still no bitterness or smoke.

I will contunue diring this afternoon and tomorrow to see how it develops.

3rd brew/ 10 sec, boiling water: it’s sweet, smooth, orange colour. It has some citric flavour but really weak. It has something like mineral flavour.

15sec boiling water: sweet, smooth. No astringency/bitterness, no smoke. Low body.

This is a quite sweet pu but too smooth for me. In my opinion it lacks some complexity and maybe a bit more of body, but for someone who likes really soft pu erhs this is a great choice.

I want to thank to Mrmopar for this sample :)

awesome review (i’m kind of saddened by the fact there is no smokeyness)

stock man

maybe the only thing that I miss from this one is a little bit of body. It tastes like some darjeelings, really soft and citric and with a great amount of sweetness.

If you like smoky pu erhs this one is not for you.
