From Tea Yuan

2014 Spring production from Nannuo mountain. Not quite as strong as the Tao Cha Ju Guafengzhai, but still has a long lasting hui gan that stays with you long after the tea goes down your throat. Very nice example of pure, unblended, old arbor material from Nannuo.

Bringing this out tonight. I have to say that I failed to open this up to breathe when I got it in. Nannuo is a bit forgiving though.
I pulled 10 grams out to start with. The pouch had a chunk at just about the right weight and in it went. I gave a 6 or 7 second wash as the chunk wasn’t broken up to let the water in. I gave it a good 10 minute rest to let it take some water in.
There are some nice looking wet leaf in there. I started the brewing in a 200ml vessel. I gave a 5 second steep twice into my cup. I pulled back the top of the brew vessel imhaled the aroma on the lid and then in the shiboridashi, (aren’t you glad I got that right boychik!) and inhaled the wet leaf . An entirely different type of aroma. More vegetal and not as sweet as the first from the lid.
The tea color is a bright yellow. It carries the citrus pine mix that I find in a lot of puerh cha. It does have a bit of thickness in the front of the mouth. It carries some bitter but in an active way it seems. The bit of tingling on the front of the gums is there for a second or two.
On the second brew the tea has a quite bit more pronounced bitter to it. The leaves are mainly whole and this is a good grade above a general factory cake.
I have a little head buzzing going on but as I am eating late I wanted to sneak this one in before dinner. A decent quality tea. One that I wish I could get a cake of but alas my buying has been cut back by she who now holds the credit card.

ive never tasted citrus pine or even pine in puerh before

mrmopar

I get it sometimes with Jing Mai and some Mengsong area teas. I have noticed that it is more common in Jing Mai though.
