I almost don’t want to review this one because I don’t want to encourage anyone but me to buy it! But the spirit moves me to say this is the perfect tea, at least by my lights. It’s not the best at any one thing, neither the flavor nor the aroma nor the texture is perfect, but they all balance each other so well they combine into something perfect. It’s lightly sweet but also sour, it’s strong enough to keep me awake but doesn’t hurt my stomach, it’s easy to break into pieces and easy to brew, and it never disappoints. I’ve tried other shous with chenpi, including samples of other white2tea shous, and although I enjoyed them all none was as perfect as this.

Flavors: Caramel, Citrus, Molasses, Wood

I’ve been drinking tea as a hobby for a few years, thought I should finally start leaving reviews. I’m most fond of teas on the darker end – black/red, roasted oolong, ripe puerh. I’m no good at translating a review into a numerical rating, so I usually don’t give one.
