I liked this one a lot. The leaves are very nice, and the aroma is fruity and sweet. The brews are a bit on the light and crisp side, with deep yellow-gold broth, though the tea is viscous. One thing I really like about this tea is the huigan, or menthol cooling effect. It is one of my favorite qualities in a pu erh, and this one has a lot of it, though it is a bit subtle. Some bitterness emerges in later steeps, as one would hope and expect, though not too much. Another great tea from Chawangshop!
This is a very nice, simple, high quality young sheng. It brews up thick, and the leaf quality is very nice. The flavor is not too complex – just a nice simple buttery fruity young sheng. There is very little bitterness until later steepings, and even then, it is muted. It is a great tea, and very cheap for this quality – only $24 for a 200g cake.
