The next sample from Pu-Erh.sk to suffer the fate of consumption was this autumn 2013 sheng from the Nakashan mountain area near Mensong.

The dry leafs already look shiny and potent and the brew didn’t fail to disappoint.

While not overly complex, it pleases with a well rounded grainy sweet taste (or biscuit taste as Hobbes puts it) and a liquor of oily consistency that gives a great mouth-feel.

The taste doesn’t develop much throughout the infusions, but a longer brewing time increase the astringency, which overall is on the lower end, as well as the recurring sweet aftertaste.

At 53€ for 275g it’s not overly cheap, but in line with the quality you get for the money and a premium everyday sheng that is not overly demanding and suitable for work-time consumption.

In case you want to try it yourself you can find it here.
