5 Tasting Notes
I enjoy this one, it has woody notes and the tea is almost juicy when pushed. I used 6.5g in 100ml gaiwan, first steep I kept relatilvley short because I found that this tea can get quite bitter if pushed too much in first \ second steep, but from there on I like to push it. I got 7-8 infusions and then put the leaves in a small pot and boiled it for around 8 minutes, which got me some really nice nutty notes! Could probably even be boiled once more.
Would overall recommend.
Flavors: Nutty, Wood
This tea is unbelievable, I bought this tea back in 2018 and I’m extremely disappointed that I bought only 1 cake. When it was young I remember I didn’t really like it or think it was very special, it was somewhat bitter with a young shou taste. After 2 years this tea lost it’s young character and bitterness and now it’s sweet and smooth. I really wish I bought a tong because this tea is unbelievably good!
Dry leaf has a strong smell of savory smokeyness. I used 7 gram sample in a 130 ml gaiwan. The tea doesn’t taste smokey at all to me, with a mild pine\ pine sap taste and smell, and a slight sweetness. Overall feels very high quality, it is quite mild but still very good, probably the best lapsang I have tried yet. Got 7 brews overall and didn’t lose most of it’s flavor.
Flavors: Pine, Smoke
Best sheng i’ve tried from white2tea so far. The smell of the wet leaves is honey, floral, slightly smokey and maybe even slightly fruity. The cake is blended from semi aged raw puer, so it isn’t too powerful like a young one. The tea tastes nice and complex and the bitterness comes only in the aftertaste with a nice mouthfeel. I cant really explain the flavour, but for anyone who is interested in raw puer I suggest you to try it!
