Great Expectations 2022 Pasha Raw Puer

$9.50$338.00

Description

One of 2 new offerings from Pasha for 2022, this tea exhibits strong menghai character, a dense flavour, nice kuwei (pleasant bitterness) and gentle floral quality. While there is some typical roughness on the tongue, the soup is still quite smooth, with a thick, clingy huigan that refuses to leave.

Pasha is often hyped due to its proximity to Laobanzhang, with the formula of “70% Laobanzhang, 30% Bingdao” being applied. The percentage split could probably be debated, but either way, this tea has a pleasant balance of dense and aggressive flavour, with a nice floral quality and fragrance.

The material comes from qiaomu (arbor trees) that grow in an excellent environment that sees very little human intervention. This tea is thoroughly enjoyable now, but we also expect great things from it in the future, which is why we’ve made plenty of room in storage to see how it does over the year.

Picking period: Pre-April 7

$0.38/gram

Many of our samples for spring 2021 are in dragon ball form. While these balls will perform the same as the cake, they can be slightly trickier to brew. Here’s how we do it:

    These tasters won’t last long Ô_0; I should probably get a cake ^_^

    //Smell : Clean clothes drying on the clothesline, hay, brine, pleasant floral presence
    //Texture: Tingling on the tip of the tongue and on the gums, creamy, smooth
    //Taste : Old leather piece, downstairs library, wet rock, salty, fizzy astringency, pineapple ‘sharpness’, pretty punchy at first
    //Body sensation: Laughing cheeks, energy, general good mood

    The dry leaves had a hint of black pepper.
    Wet leaves a little old cheese. (love cheese)
    1. steep Tastes of fresh spring water with a hint of sheng? Have never tried it in a tea before. Is that a normal note?

    I’m really not good at notes.
    Sitting with my eyes closed and the only thing I taste is Sheng.
    But I’m dry in my mouth already before I finish 2nd steep, my thoughts are flying around, having a hard time focusing. And the heat spreads in my body.

    My verdict. Taste-wise, it is very gentle. The body sensation, a really good energetic restlessness. Am sure that if I had drunk it with friends there would have been a lot of laughing and talking.

    Classy, full, low pitched kind of tea. Fragrance is subdued. Taste is discreet and leathery, like luxury car seats or something. Has a pleasant high pitched astringency dancing around the sides of my mouth between infusions. Nice sweet bitterness. Liking the mouthfeel and soup a lot. Just a very full and substantial tea experience in general, not a whole lot going on but everything it does have is on point. Good body feel and has good stamina.

    Preserved citrus and florals, black pepper greens, melon, sweet onion in the cup. It’s sharp, punchy, on the offensive from steep two. Astringency, bitterness, and qi vie for attention, a battleground in liquid form. The roughness smooths after a few steeps, where an oily, warm broth emerges. This sheng is dynamic and challenging, making for a thoroughly enjoyable focused session.
