The 2019 Dong Ding from Terre de Ciel is a tea full of floral notes and butter. The later infusions had a green edge with a long-lasting aftertaste.
The 2018 TdC Ailao Shan Sheng Puerh from Terre de Ciel is a tea that made me feel as if I was walking on a cloud. Subtle, sweet and fruity.
The TdC 2015 Hekai is one of my favourite puerh teas right now. It has some tonic notes, but is mainly dominated by sweet and exotic fruits.
Terre de Ciel’s ‘La Petite Favorite’ is a hong cha from old trees in the Jingmai area. It has a malty flavour profile and is a good in-between tea.
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.
Terre de Ciel’s 2011 Kunlu Shan has smokey and incense notes to it, but you can also feel some traces of a sweet fruitiness.
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.
