127 Tasting Notes
Slightly mineral and floral with a subtle bitterness and sweet, vegetable note, surprisingly intense body and beautiful “stable character”. The first two infusions have a slightly unpleasant, hard to describe note (soapy-oolong-like?), but from the third infusion on, the actual character of the tea comes forth. In the 2016 version, however, this note is not (any more?) present, so maybe only a temporary phenomenon.

Beautiful full-bodied with a very silky texture and from the first sip on intensely fresh-floral, slightly bitter notes as well as a discreetly invigorating Qi. Undoubtedly a very good tea, but for my taste a little too “clean”.

Slightly bitter, nutty-earthy and slightly bitter after old books, no “where dui wei” any more present, quite persistent though somewhat mixed leaf quality.

Beautifully spicy and oily without being too heavy, but still with an interesting texture. Unfortunately only very discreet Qi. [only had a sample]

Traditional-stored Sheng with barbecue sauce – that’s how this tea can be summed up. Moist, warm, woody-sweet notes under a very intense layer of smoke, which is not a bit aggressive but a very pleasant, super soft texture. Rather unsorted leaves – from large, strong leaves to the whole branch – everything is included, which makes this already extraordinary tea even more extraordinary.

Interesting fragrance, but very light in taste and reminds of white tea. A pleasant, calm tea for a longer infusion time.

Soft and heavy, due to a certain humidity a very nice moss note which also makes the tea look much older.

At the beginning, very nutty and floral-vegetable with slight herbal notes, the aromas transform into a pleasant, freshly bitter-sweet blend with subtle fruitiness. Slightly light body and rather coarse in the processing but altogether very tasty and multi-faceted.
