I just love this, so thick you can almost chew it. Cream? It certainly has a creamy mouthfeel but tastewise I can find no dairy products present. For me the taste is sweet and syrupy with lots of stewed fruits like apples and plums. But what about the traditional wet soil and wood and mushrooms and all that funky stuff you might be asking? Well, either I’ve suddenly become accustomed to the quirks of shou pu’er, or, and this certainly sounds more plausible, this is just some damn fine tea. I know it took me only 4 steeps to add it to my wishlist so make of that what you will.

Simple and unpretentious, but that’s exactly what I needed this morning. Light sugary sweetness and gentle astringency. A very delicate roasted tomatoes aroma from the leaf, a note I sometimes get in raw pu’er which brings back pleasant memories.

Generally sweet and woody with no off-putting notes. Thick and syrupy, very dark reddish-brown color that lightens by infusion number 10. The color reminds me of sweet vermouth. The first couple of infusions had notes of pancakes and maple syrup (but it might just be associative thinking). Fruity and mildly sweet with the ever-present woody base note. Slightly drying mouthfeel like with rose hips, more noticeable in later infusions. I stopped around infusion 12-13 and I can swear I even got some light floral note (rose, magnolia) on the out-breath similar to what I get in sheng pu’er (but much lighter) around 30 seconds after swallowing. A very easy drinking shou and also quite forgiving with brewing times.

More of a nut milk taste and not cream. Toasty malty notes take center stage with supporting floral notes. Not exactly what I expected but good nonetheless.
