This pack is torn open and immediately the nature of this mysterious sample is revealed. The brownish leaves, some of which are lighter and fuzzy, have a certain creamy depth to their light sweet odour.
These scents distract the mind as one prepares these leaves in yixing.
The first sip transmits a sweet, creamy, light, airy spring taste. It is truly light in taste, colour, and feel. Its mouthfeel, silky smooth, covers the whole mouth.
As the leaves in the pot are exposed to more water, the mouthfeel fills up a bit more. There is also a flash, a tease, of forested depth in the mouth before quickly vanishing under creamy sweetness. A tat of dry is left on the breath.
This soft, mellow puerh remains stable throughout, unimpaired by the session which soon stretches along. Its qi is so soft and light that it seems to almost relax and sedate so one decides to drink it into the evening.
