Single estate Bada material from a small production.
This is a Da Shu / plantation blend.
Eggshell mineral notes and peach aroma. Minerality comes through very well and is the dominant note with a light peach note tucked away at the back. Bitterness is still a little pushy but it in no way is overwhelming. Future promise here, this bitterness should fold into sweetness given a few years. The character does remind me of a posh aging version of Menghai Spring cake (if there were one), save that in this tea there is no smokey notes and it’s a little more texture. See what you think. Chi is minimal but energetic.
