This ancient tree sheng Pu’er tea is a delight from start to finish. The large long leaves struggled to fit in the gaiwan, but a quick rinse restored enough suppleness to allow them to curl up into our brewing vessel. The aroma from the dry and wet leaf was subdued and delicate and the first infusions yielded a gold liquor with a light pink hue. The first few sips revealed a light smokiness mingled with plum notes couched in mossy, woody flavours. Later infusions led to a deeper orange/gold liquor colour but the flavour was steady, with a thick, silky mouthfeel. Flavours of this tea lingered for ages and offered a sensationally refreshing experience. The quality of the raw material and the processing is readily apparent in every sip and a glance at the brewed leaves confirmed this. Lustrous and silky in appearance and soft but sturdy to the touch, this is a tea to be enjoyed for many infusions.
