It’s a nice and smooth shou.

The soup has some thickness that is not very dense but really nice and sort of a bit oily, it sort of just melts in your mouth.

The taste isn’t that complex nor that heavy, it tastes a bit like shou puer does but nothing special in a sense. But i really like it, it has a nice smoothness and a lovely sort of mellow oily thicknes.

It reminds me of a nice walk among birches on a clear but mild day with the sun shining and heating up the skin in the late spring.

I drank about 11 steepings of this and came to the conclusion that this is pu’erh… like, this is pu’erh. Basically it doesn’t stand out as amazing or terrible, it walks that middle road quite well like a supermarket doughnut; sure it’s not Krispee Kreme but it’s also not a Walmart doughnut (sorry if you like Walmart doughnuts… they seem to be really old around here because they sit around)

Shou time of last night.
i start drinking shou every night. it soothes me and I sleep very well after drinking it. it just wraps you in a warm fuzzy blanket. this tea is no exception. Comfort tea.
The color is very bright and burgundy. clear, smooth, no funkiness ( not that i mind;)
For me it wasnt just like regular earthy taste. i find it quite rich, some wine flavors, spicies, cloves maybe. As I’m drinking now it has some minty cool notes and very sweet aftertaste.
Anyway, it was a great experience. thank you tea friend for letting me try this tea. i really appreciate it.

Mmm good shou! I’ve been so lucky to get to try so many great puerh samples lately.

This one has lots of earthy flavors and no funk. I don’t know how to describe it other than this is what shou is supposed to taste like. Kind of basic but super clean and enjoyable!

I’m not going to give this tea a numerical rating because I have no idea how to rate it. The taste is relatively nondescript: a blend of tar, wood, and earth, with a touch of bitterness. They work surprisingly well together, and the flavor is not objectionable, but certainly not really anything I would seek out.

However, the distinguishing feature of this tea for me was the strong cha qi. The very first cup put me into a meditative state, and throughout the time I spent drinking the tea I had a tremendous feeling of well-being. I’ve had this experience with other pu-erhs, and occasionally with black teas, but never this strongly.

On a hunch, I measured my blood pressure while drinking the third steep, and it was about 15 points less than usual. Unfortunately, it was back to normal soon after the tea was finished.

Typical Menghai Dayi production in the look, aroma and taste. I do not suggest this in a bad way just saying that it is not that distinctive from other decent Dayi factory blends – it is reliably a Menghai Dayi ripe puerh. Rich in color; pleasant in aroma; mellow and rich in taste –woodsy, a little sweet with hints of stonefruit. Worthy purchase as a Menghai Dayi “building block” in your shou collection.

my brain made me read that as “pillow taste” the first time, heh
