Description:

nicely balanced bitterness with a breze of sweetness, beautiful honey-fruity aroma, pleasant and pure feeling after swalowing the tea in the mouth, in the second brew there is already the richness and dense texture of the tea soup, already after a few sips a steady aftertaste, or rather taste sits on the tounge with a mounth-drying effect, the cup gives parfume like scents, the next brews are tough and syrupy, condense flavours, I would describe in overall the taste as rounded, softened bitterness with fruity background

this spring hand-pressing of pu-erh cakes was done in a very skilled manufacture in Yiwu, is more tight than previous years, there is more work for me when taking apart the tea leaves for samples, but for long term storage the tight pressing will allow keep longer the aromas, the tea leaves won't dry that much, during this tighter pressing the man standing on the stone press needs twice as much time to have the leaves trample down

Quite bitter

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

The tea was part of Sheng 2013 Blind Tasting Set

The sample is quite compact and firmly pressed. Smell of wet leaves is distinctive, floral after lily. The first infusion is bitter. I am using the colder water for the second infusion. Bitterness is still present, but does not increase. The tea has a full flavor, really robust. Hui Gan is intense. It has a great energy.
