Very interesting young puerh, really enjoyed this one. Purchased a 25g sample from YS, reviewing after two sessions.
Appearance: Very attractive green/white/brown contrasting colors in the broken off cake. Fairly large leaves, individual pieces break off relatively intact.
Dry Aroma – Mild sweetness, something reminiscent of milk chocolate, but not exactly. Interesting.
Wet aroma – Sweet plum, moss, early morning dew
Taste – develops from unripe fruit and mild astringency in earlier steepings, more astringency in middle steepings, orange creamsicle emerged later on… really wild. Final infusion had an interesting balance of astringency and vanilla. Didn’t expect that.
Overall – really enjoyed this tea. Nowhere near as aggressive or medicinal as some other young sheng I’ve had. It’s all good, but nice to experience the other end of the spectrum.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cut grass, Orange, Pear, Vanilla
