From white2tea

The 2019 The Great Divide is a shu Puer blend with a heavy, full throttle bitterness. The thick soup is smooth and cooling with a long lasting bitterness in the mouth. Ready to drink now, but will continue to age towards medicinal, woody character over the coming years.

Many Shu I tried felt too “hollow” but this one has a real soul. It’s rich and bitter in a good way. Digestive. Strong presence, long lasting aftertaste. Very good durability. Not super complex. Maybe not a daily drinker. I can imagine drinking this after a heavy meal. Also powerful caffeine kick.

Gongfu!

Had this one today because I was craving shou and I realized that I had yet to try any of the new shou from my most recent W2T order…

My initial thought is that The Great Divide is like a box of cracker jacks, only the box is filled with really heavily salted chestnuts and it’s a piece of twine at the bottom of the gaiwan and not a prize (I had a thick piece of twine compressed into my sample). In all honesty not a bad shou, but right now it’s not quite my thing so back into storage it goes to be revisited in the future!! Basically a nutty (chestnut) and heavily saline profile layered over a full bodied earthy base flavour, with a thick soup and hint of citrus in the finish. Just too saline for my liking at the moment.
