Yiwu Lucky Bee 2018
Mild, mineral, and milky, this is an exquisite and delicate Pu'er which might have been designed to please oolong lovers: with the minerality of dark Chinese varieties and the creaminess of eponymous milky oolongs, only a hint of typical earthiness betrays this Sheng Pu'er. Its large leaves, wafting hints of grapefruit, lobster mushrooms, and a tiny hint of honey, produce infusion after ethereal infusion, enough to glide the tea drinker through an afternoon on cloud top. Add to that the satisfaction of consuming small-farm tea produced without artificial fertilisers or pesticides, and you have a recipe for the vibrant relaxation which only Sheng can provide.
