Recent Tasting Notes
Very nice tea (Myanmar produced sheng, technically not pu’er for being from there).
Pronounced honey sweetness and bitterness stand out most, then a distinctive mineral aspect beyond that. The mineral almost links with a kale-like vegetable character, similar to how that comes across in Vietnamese Tha Nguyen green tea, which transitions to a more standard cured wood tone over several infusions. Aftertaste is pronounced. One limitation, the character doesn’t transition much over rounds, although the tea is very intense and produces many positive infusions. This is probably an amazing value tea, if you can find it, since I got it directly from the producer at an expo, with more of that back-story in this even more detailed review.
