Sipped on this first pu’erh from the Tiger Box a couple days ago. for my afternoon session! It’s a rather stem heavy tea, but among the many stems are large beautiful leaves! Early on the session had a slight snap of sweet citrus to it, but quickly settled into a calmer and more consistent greener leaning profile. Still a hint of fruitiness alongside a light astringency – like lemongrass, in a few ways, and peach skins in others. Mostly I tasted a simple but distinct woodiness and a almost creamy bit of pandan. It’s not hooking me in so immediately the way many of my favourite sheng have, but I’m finding it very grounding and with a mild enough flavour to allow easily a more contemplative session.
