Well, first of all, the rainy cooler late Summer weather that hit a week or two ago gave way to warmer weather. Just enough to squeeze in some good fresh Sheng samples from Tea Encounter. It has been a tradition of the last few years for me to sample Tea Encounter’s freshest offerings from their annual catalogue around this time. It’s a thing I have started to take some enjoyment in and am always thankful for the experience.
I noticed that Alex of Teanotes has a head start on his reviews of these. I will be sure to reference his notes along the way. The package arrived and I have started to swim through the all house brand Tea Encounter puerh.
I stated with the good stuff a Guafengzhai and Chawangshu sampling….
And I can tell you it was a good week to be alive!
