The new vintage of our all-time favorite sheng puer. This vintage has a really nice and complex flavor with an amazing calming effect.
Da Xue Shan (大雪山), the Snowy Mountain, is located in the northern part of Yunnan province. The northerly climate has an interesting effect on the teas: they tend to have a fresher, more fragrant character that differentiates them from their southern relatives.
Our friends here pay extreme attention to the process of making the teas. Even for the shortest steps of withering, they cover the leaves with gauze so that they stay clean and unharmed by bugs and insects. This care echoes in the superb quality of every tea they sell.
Steamed gaiwan: refined woodiness, smoke
Tastes, feelings: We found really nice greenish tastes, fruits, freshness, sweet peach, and plum peal. Later, some ember-like flavors come with gentle astringency. We experienced nice calming effects in the body, our mind cleared, and the focus changed.
