drank 2014 Yi Ji Shu by Verdant Tea
1113 tasting notes

While I’m still not a fan of the 100g cakes… Verdant always get a BF-CM order from me. Great people : )
So I purchased a shou… I know right?

I drank this before bed last night around midnight to 2am… so I really don’t recall much other than I liked it enough that I set some aside to brew tonight because it wasn’t a typical cocoa shou that I like. I think the barley note Verdant put up might be rather accurate. I remember this being semi dry on the finish and also a faded fermentation. The age on this is probably right just now because I notice that when looses its punch I would much much much much rather have an aged sheng. So I think this 100g will be drank rather quickly which is nice because its got strength but I don’t that strength being there for the next 3 years; but this is my preference on shou of course…

As for 100g shou, Whispering Pines still has the most comforting taste still by itself but I realllllllly think this shou will pair well with woody aromas in the air so you better believe I’m doing sandalwood and shou tonight!!!!!!
