Handmade Dragon Ball Pu’er
#TodaysTea: At my son’s tennis tournament – Dragon Ball Pu’er from Yunnan. Steamed aged cake, hand pressed by myself, into a ball in Shanghai in 2019.
Dry leaf aroma, dank, forest floor, dry, woody
Wet leaf aroma, hints of honey and sour candied fruit.
Tea aroma is fragrant, hints of honey, longan, and cantaloupe.
The taste of the first wash to wake up the leaves is intensely bitter with a touch of liquorice and longan, the mouthfeel is thin to moderately textured, with a light astringent, mouthwatering finish and a hint of sweetness. With the first and second steepings, the bitterness is less pronounced.
