From white2tea

Our 2020 The Nameless One is an entirely small batch shu Puer blend that pushes the boundaries of shu Puer tea.

Most people don’t bother fermenting high end material themselves to make shu Puer tea. Even fewer people yet bother taking high end raw Puer and fermenting at very light levels which are riskier and more difficult to control. Even fewer people than that make multiple small batches of high end, deftly fermented materials and then blend them together.

Lucky for you, we are not most people.

The Nameless One blends several high end materials from several regions at several different levels of fermentation. The result is syrupy thickness, mouth watering huigan, and a complex and engaging steep to steep experience that will make you question the genre. This tea was blended to age, but it’s entrancing now.

This is the culmination of five years of intense observation of the pile fermenting process in Menghai. If you’re a fan of our teas, do not skip this. I’d recommend a tong for ten years from now.

Each cake is 200 grams of tea.

Another sample from Roswell Strange, I am very glad to have tried this high end shou blend. It’s got a lot of complexity and a thick buttery mouthfeel. I also found it to be very warming throughout the body and it’s effect on the mind to be quite attention-focusing.

The aromas are sweet with dominant notes of vanilla, cream, and black raspberry. Taste is sweet, mineral, herbaceous, and woody relative to the average shou. I wrote down that the flavour reminds me of sawdust, dry earth, walnuts, gin, caramel, and tree bark.

There is a strong huigan and the aftertaste is quite cooling and fragrant. I also noticed additional hints of bananas and soy sauce.

Gongfu!

First session of this $$$ shou – decided to go all in and blind cake this one & hold onto it as a bit of an aging study. My snap impression is that it’s quite sweet and fruity, with an almost tangy quality to the top notes of each sip – the first thing that came to mind to describe it was tamarind paste! I find the finish quite clean, too. Anyone else tried this? What were your first thoughts? I would be very curious to compare experiences!
