Not on the website yet, but its the same as last years, a blend of different sized trees from Jingmai, same trees as the 2008 maocha.

Perfect example of puerh je ne sais quois. It has young floral character but balanced with a depth of flavour helping keep it in the neutral zone. Soft and welcoming, lacking the sweet juice of the 2008 but I can taste some of the elements of the fruitiness that the older sheng has.

Really quite nice, I love it when tea has that something you cant put your finger on, but like.

Also i noticed different flavours being extracted when brewing at different temps, the joy of drinking blended tea. It is less forgiving than the 2008 though, as to be expected from the younger leaf.

Basically loads of Fenghuang, jade oolong & sheng puerh.

90+ is godly

80-90 is something i would buy again.

60-80 ok, but probably more bland or basic in their flavour.

0-60 something tastes wrong with this one.
