Description:

This cake is made from high quality gushu leaves sourced from Luo Shui Dong 落水洞 - a famous puer producing village in Yiwu. The farmers here are primarily Han ethnicity, known for their excellent hand-processing technique. This early spring tea produces is a clear bright yellow liquor, with a sweet, buttery mouthfeel. Because it is easy to drink when young, Luo Shui Dong is a good entry point for those new to sheng (raw) puer, or those who don’t like bitter or astringent flavors.


Steeping:

We recommend 8grams of tea for a 100ml teapot or gaiwan. Use boiling hot water. This tea can be re-infused at least 10 times

Very nice scent of steamed leaves, flowers, honey.

The leaves are beautifully green and vibrant.

Mild astringency. Honey flavor returns back to your nose. You can feel tea in the chest, as if did not reach the stomach and settled in the chest, where it warms up the body. It has a nice energy that can be observed already after the second cup.

For longer times, there is a stronger bitterness and astringency, but they are not uncomfortable. Obligate dry feeling of younger Sheng is also present.

The best infusions were between 2nd and 4th cups. Brew was then weaker.
I was pleased with its energy and sweetness that stays a long time in the mouth. Price is $70 per 357g.

Quotes

„What instead happens is that some teas require multiple tastings to reveal themselves one way or another. Sometimes the first time you brew a tea it doesn’t come out quite right not because it’s bad, but because you are still adjusting to it. It helps when you’re using the same teawares all the time, so that the only variable is the tea“
