Description:

this tea is sold only as a sample, each order is limited to have only 2 samples of this tea

aroma of a freshly baked bread with fruity tones, very specific scent and taste, energetic bitternes, in some parts very similar to the one from Lao Banzhang, disappearing after a while and leaving strong and pleasant aftertaste, the similarity with Banzhang they say it is used in good fakes of Lao Banzhang, this year this tea sold only as samples, the ordered 5 kg of this was sold on preorders, surely will appear in the pu-erh.sk list next spring

The tea was part of Sheng 2013 Blind Tasting Set

Again, dry tea smells beautifully fresh. The sample is holding together. Smell of wet leaves is sweet, floral and much similar to the sample number 2 (Hekai). The sample is relatively compact; I am leaving the first infusion for 40s. The brew is delicate, a floral scent, delicate sweetness. It leaves a slightly sweet feeling in the mouth what is then changing into dryness. No trace of bitterness. Very smooth impression. The second infusion is full, spicy. It leaves a pleasant astringency in the mouth and pronounced dryness. Pleasant energy. I have forgotten the 7th infusion and there has appeared a bitterness, but the brew is still drinkable – so far my favorite :-)

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Nèi fēi (内飞 or 內飛): A small ticket originally stuck on the tea cake but now usually embedded into the cake during pressing. It is usually used as proof, or a possible sign, to the authenticity of the tea. Some higher end pu'er cakes have more than one nèi fēi embedded in the cake. The ticket usually indicates the tea factory and brand.“

Quotes

„Gyokuro (玉露, Jade Dew) - Gyokuro is a fine and expensive type that differs from Sencha (煎茶) in that it is grown under the shade rather than the full sun for approximately 20 days. The name "Gyokuro" translates as "jade dew" and refers to the pale green color of the infusion. The shading causes the amino acids (Theanine) and caffeine in the tea leaves to increase, while catechins (the source of bitterness in tea, along with caffeine) decreases, giving rise to a sweet taste. The tea also has a distinct aroma.“
