Chipped away at my wonderful cake of this tea recently, too! In the other Yixing Pot that I own (the one that I bought way back, from NanNuoShan), I brewed up a fairly generous chunk and treated myself to a full day of this exceptional puerh. It had an incredible rich, orange-red colour (I always thought that people who claimed sheng went red were exaggerating a little, but this one really did!) and a powerful, aromatic flavour that just seemed to last forever.

I don’t remember too much about the flavours, and so forth, but I know it had a rich, smooth texture and a somewhat creamy undertone, which I still find rather surprising!

Nonetheless, this is a really delicious, special sheng puerh that I’m super glad to have bought a full cake of whilst I could.

Junior doctor and casual tea-drinker.

It’s been a busy few years for me – I’ve graduated from med school and I’m now working full time as a junior doctor in a small UK hospital. I’ve returned Steepster to continue to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I remain particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
