I will be the first person again to review one of this company’s amazing puerh.
This was my meditation tea today. I picked this because the ceramic jar was staring me down, and I should treat myself. The dry leaf has a very sharp and dry “green” scent if that makes sense. I warmed up my sheng yixing and threw in a generous amount of maocha. The aroma that filled my tea room was so succulent. I could hint at a deep maple syrup tone. This was such a sweet and warm smell, so I let it set in there for a few more minutes to take in its aroma. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The steeped leaves turned dark green and smelled of smoked hickory and bitter greens. The flavor was amazing. This was a perfect tea to pick to meditate with. This brew had a smooth smoky flavor with a dry white wood undertone. The flavor was encapsulated with a lasting huigan. The qi I felt was amazing. This was not a brew that had me floored and taken aback by its sheer power. Instead, I was mesmerized. My body became silent and cooled. I was put into a calm and almost sleep like state. I began to feel everything calm down with each additional sip. This tea has some power in it, but it’s of the calm and focused variety. Although, this brew didn’t stand up to a great many steepings (less than 10) it was an amazing tea session. I was so calm by the end of it that I decided to go lay out on the sun bed and take in some rays while I rest. This will be a treat for when I wish to unwind and become quiet for a bit.
