The 2016 Yiwu Wang Bing Gushu is a sweet and tannic tea with impressive energy. In a few years time, it will be less tannic and have the perfect Yiwu sweetness.
Tee Kontor Kiel’s Yiwu Gushu Sheng 2008 is a true gem. It’s the perfect amount of sweet and fruit with a long-lasting aftertaste.
The 2018 Mahei Owl is my favourite sheng puerh. It offers a combination of sweet honey, golden raisins and some citrus and tannic notes. It’s just right!
Since I started drinking loose leaf tea, I have changed my habits regarding puerh tea. I briefly discuss how I decide which Puerh tea to buy.
After one year, the 2019 Green Hype has changed quite a bit. It starts out sweet with a citrus touch and changes into a more bitter brew towards the end.
ANMO’s 2005 Master Loo Tea Brick is shou puerh with a woodsy flavour profile. It went from visiting a sawmill to walking through a camphor forest.
Terre de Ciel’s 2016 Menghai Parfum de Jujube ripe is such a good shu puerh. It offers sweet flavours that are full of dried fruits.
The 2013 Bingdao Gushu sheng puerh from Nannuoshan is a subtle tea that offers a pleasant fruitiness. It’s the perfect tea to calm down after a long day.
Over the last few months, my tea drinking habits have changed. Instead of green tea and oolong tea, I now prefer Puerh tea for various reasons.
The TdC NAKA 2012 is a sheng puerh that has potential for future ageing. It starts out fresh and vegetal, but changes into a sweet and fruity brew.
