7g 100ml Yixing. This has to be one of the best tasting puerh I’ve had to date. Lots of fruit, especially fresh green apples (gramdma’s apple pie anyone) and peaches. Thick and extremely coating, which I always love, maybe not quite as thick as W2T’s bosch but really hit all part of the mouth and throat and lasted for hours. It also steeped forever, 20+ steeps over the course of 2 days. First couple steeps were very strong and flavorful, followed by a slight drop off where it just stayed there for an eternity it seemed.

Could feel the tea flow down into my stomach, left a very farm feeling throughout the session and for hours after. Felt like the tea was coursing through my body. Started at at the back of my head, down my neck and in to my arm and torso. Usually take a couple cups for that to happen(if it happens) but this hit me fast, in the middle of the first cup, with lots of strength. Actually started feeling it from drinking the wash which was a bit surprising. Overall a great tea from a producer that I’m now excited to try more tea from

A quick shout out to Teapals who was great keeping in touch with me via e-mail throughout the shipping process which got slightly delayed due to them being away for a tasting event followed by the Eid Mubarak festival which closed down the local post office. Thanks for reading!

Fine, smooth and bold.

Dry leaves smell very sweet and without smokiness.

The first brew is light yellow although later brews are darker. The soup itself smells like sweet peas and savoury. The soup taste fine and absolutely no harshness expected of new tea. It returns honey sweetness after it slides into your throat with “oily” smoothness and ends up warming your chest. It’s bold and strong and packs much cha qi (茶气 ). On the 6th brew, as always, it’s subjected to torture brew by leaving it in 90°C water for over 2 minutes. The abusive brew results were remarkable. No obvious astringency or bitterness and it was as smooth, fine and thicker in mouthfeel.

Flavors: Nectar, Peas
