YS’ Mu Shu Cha from 2014 has been received well, and I think I can kind of see why. It is a really comforting tea, both in its mouthfeel and the body feel. The texture is smooth and thick and it induces a very relaxing state in a very non-aggressive way.
The liquor is also very flavourful with a balanced profile and very little astringency. The dominant flavour groups present include wood, minerals, and grains (especially wheat). The session starts with a few bright, spicy and sweet infusions, but later transitions into a more rounded and savoury experience. Among other marginal notes one can find forest, vegetables (bok choy), soy sauce, some flowers, and Santa Claus melon.
