Strange Brew. Very strange. Lots going on.
It crossed some lines I didn’t know could be crossed and I got steamrolled.
Strange combination of honeysweet linen-floral white, bitter and fruity yesheng, with the maltiness and baked goods taste of aged yueguangbai and some kind of weird musty meatiness and pungent herbaceousness. Body flattening yet heady energy. Great strength in aroma, taste, aftertaste, mouthfeel and returning sweetness. First handful of steeps are best when prepared gongfu. Thins out and gets metallic quicker than I would’ve thought based on the thickness of the first several infusions. I really wonder how this would perform with other methods.
Unsure how often I’d drink it.
Others’ reviews tell a lot. Read them here and here https://steepster.com/teas/yunnan-sourcing/73133-wild-tree-purple-moonlight-white-tea-from-jinggu. Thanks, Togo :)
