Description

2018 was a strong year for tea in Yunnan, and there is no better demonstration of this than our 2018 WMD. This tea is made from unblended gushu material from previously abandoned land in Mansa, which lies north of Yiwu and leans on the border with Laos.

As with previous years, this tea carries a strong cha qi/energy that is both uplifting and energizing. In addition to producing a strong sensory reaction in the body, this year’s tea also brings to the table an equally strong and unique fragrance, as well as a thick, expanding feeling in the mouth.

With very little coarseness or bitterness, we highly recommend this for drinkers who prioritize texture and unique fragrance.

    I’m new to sheng puerh, but I have bought about 10 cakes at the same time from the 2017 and 2018 offerings across 3 of the major western suppliers, and though I can honestly say that all my choices have been really satisfying ones, even those too bitter to drink immediately, this is the first cake I will run out of, and not just because it’s a smaller one… I would not regret the $$ I would have to spend to get another one, and I will seriously consider getting perhaps 3 more. With the exception of 1 other cake, I would mostly just try different things rather than repurchase the others.

    I can confirm that the description above regarding body feel and Qi is completely accurate and is a huge part of what is making me completely addicted to this tea. The fragrance I can’t approximate to particular foods, but it has the more-ish, decadent quality of fresh warm caramel, the maddeningly elusively, suddenly powerful scent of unknown flowers, perhaps similar to white lilies, or notes present in the scent of camellias, with a depth that requires contemplating. The taste and feel of the tea is rounded, smooth and lingering. This is a tea I would love to share with others as it is happiness in a cup.

    Very gentle.
    Nice Texture though hasn’t thickened out yet.
    Good taste, that changes in an interesting way along the brews.
    Had a calming effect on me.
    Worth a try.

    This is an incredible sheng. Mouthfeel and body are second to none here. Herbaceous, grassy aroma, with a smooth mouthfeel. Thick bodied, and a pleasant bitterness that’s not immediately apparent. Wonderful finishing sweetness that gives way to a lingering floral after taste.

    Very interesting everyday drinking tea! Loosely compressed leaves ; so it’s easy to work with. The leaves smell like an old leather bag and clean/wet clothes. Medium silky texture. Complete mouth coating. Comforting fragancy of humind hay et hot summer day. The color of the liquor is a vivid yellow; which is pretty cool!
