From Teavivre

This is a unique raw pu-erh cake. The fresh leaves are from Fengqing large leaf species in Yunnan. Mengyou raw pu-erh has powerful flavor and soft aftertaste. When sipping it, the fragrance and taste linger on your tongue, bringing the sweetness to your throat.
The tea leaves of this Fengqing raw pu-erh is from 300 to 600 years old tea trees, grown on 2000 meters high tea gardens. The favorable weather condition and natural environment breeds such a good tea.

From the Pu TTB

A delicate sheng that’s reminiscent of a good green tea. Somewhat vegetal/umami with notes of green wood, honey, and fresh tobacco. Very infusable, very attractive whole leaves. Later steeps have a mango fruityness alongside sugarcane and vegetal notes. Lacking in the punch that I expect from young sheng. Almost definitely a “drink now” puerh.

Overall a very friendly sheng that would serve as a good introduction for someone looking for low bitterness or coming from green teas.

Water: 8oz

Leaves: dark green with white sections

Steep: 3m,4m

Aroma: vegetable

Color: yellow

Taste: I was shocked when i first opened this pack of tea it wasn’t the typical pu-erh i was used to seeing. What i encountered was green leaves followed by a vegetable aroma, instead of the typical dark leaf/earthy aroma. It produced a yellow toned tea the aroma closer to a white or green tea. As for taste it was very light in flavor that is what set it apart from the previous pu-erh.

What a unique and delicious young sheng!

It reminds me of sencha, oddly enough. It is very sweet and sort of vegetal. It has a pleasant and delicate huigan, and is light on the cha qi scale. This might be good for people who are unsure about puerh but really love green tea!

I’m glad I got to try it :)

Do tell… What exactly is huigan?

Stephanie

It’s that sort of aftertaste that some shengs leave in the back of your throat/tongue http://articles.bannacha.com/index.php?article23/describing-pu-erh-tea

apt

returning sweetness. I get huigan from good Taiwanese Oolongs, especially the slightly more processed ones.

Stephanie

Yeah, I get real nice huigan from Phoenix Dancong sometimes :D

apt

I just get sweetness from start to finish with Dancongs. Where have you gotten Dancongs from in the past?

Stephanie

The one I have right now is from Verdant tea. It is really good. I like a long steep

apt

I like the Dancong from Jing Tea Shop, especially Mi Lan. I also need to try Tea Habitat, that’s essentially all they do, Dancong.

Plunkybug

Did you steep the whole packet or part of it? I can’t find instructions on how much to use anywhere. I’m doing the whole thing with a shorter steep, so I hope I have not killed my sample.

Stephanie

Whole 10g packet for how many ounces of water?

Plunkybug

12 oz. I was wrong….very wrong. It was too much.

Stephanie

Ugh, bummer. You can sometimes salvage by diluting with water…

Plunkybug

Yeah, I did a little. It’s my fault…I don’t know what I was thinking.
