drank 2009 Yiwu Raw Puer by white2tea
36 tasting notes

Second session with the sample from the w2t monthly club. 5g in a 70 ml gaiwan, yielding about 40-50ml per brew. This is a solid example of a mid+ quality yiwu after its first step in the maturity cycle. Sweetness of youth with the profile of a bit of age. Top notes that hint at berries and citrus fruit with a hint of vanilla/baking spice. A solid mid-palate of wood/ sandalwood incense and wildflowers, and a base that falls just shy of tobacco. Smooth and complex.

The brew softly embraces the palate before a huge wave of aftertaste brings on lots of salivation, massive and persistent cooling, and never ending honey sweetness. Throat characteristics were okay, mouthfeel was on fleek. Qi is grounding and heady. Lasted about 11 brews before switching to long brews. This one is out of my price range unfortunately, but I think it is appropriately priced for the quality. Def yiwu. Def delicious.

Boiling 5 g 2 OZ / 70 ML
