An unadulterated environment and high altitude growing conditions imparts a near magical quality to the tea. Cha Qi is super strong but with perfect clarity both in body/mouth feeling and taste!

This is a subtle and mellow tea, not too strong in either aroma or taste. Smell is thick, heavy and damp with notes of pickle, grilled corn and (roast) vegetables. The taste is medicinal, grassy and floral. There is a bit of honey, but the dominant flavour is the one of dry grass/hay. Bitterness and astringency ares mild initially, but the astringency picks up steam considerable throughout the session. The mouthfeel is buttery, numbing and quite dry in the finish.

Overall, I found this sheng to be quite pleasant and easy to drink. However, it didn’t seem very complex. The cha qi is very strong though, especially considering it’s an autumn tea.

This is my third Tea from Yunnan Sourcing and boy was I in for a treat.
It’s a subtle tea at first. Pleasant and thick but subtle. But around the third steep there is some interesting things happening. There’s a hint of astringency mingled with a spice like cinnamon or Cayenne pepper but without the heat. It’s barely there but it took me by surprise and now it’s the prevalent flavor in my mouth. I really am enjoying this tea and I feel like the quality of tea is surpassing my expectations.
