Description

Made from Naka material that would normally grow up to become raw puer, this white tea offers a sugary-sweet, slightly fruity experience, coupled with a pleasant texture and body to hold things down.

Compared to the 2021 version, this year’s version leans more towards the floral side of things. This floral quality becomes even more noticeable as the session goes on and adds a nice dimension to the tea.

For white tea lovers, this is a strong candidate for tonging, or at the very least pairing a drink-now cake with one for storage.

    Aspects of this tea remind me of sheng puerh straight from the dry leaf, from an initial citrus zest to some high-frequency florals. The hallmarks of sugar and fruit spring from the cup, along with a silky soft body, and leafy apple salad + candy fizz grape in the sip. I find the florals mostly in the teapot and empty cup, whereas sugar really builds in the throat. I like the light blending of all these tones – nothing really overpowers, making for a relaxed, comforting session.

    As a massive fan of the 2021 version with 6 cakes down the hatch and 6 more in storage, I had high hopes for this. Some things have improved: it’s more pleasant in terms of fragrance and sweetness, feels more nuanced and tastes better in general (comparing to my memory of the fresh 2021 cakes). Last year’s version was more one-dimensional and didn’t evolve much throughout a session but had better stamina. It was more coarse/rough but it also had one of my favorite body feels of any tea I’ve tried. This year’s version seems to lack the ability to put me in that deep state of calm and stillness (subjective and situational no doubt). Unremarkable tea in terms of body feel. And for me, that’s likely going to stop me from tonging up on this. It’s still a nice and somewhat unique oxidised white for the price. The 2021 cakes have calmed down with time and gotten some nice buttery notes last I checked. I think this year’s version will also benefit from some period of rest, but drinking it now makes for an enjoyable session as well.
