Yiwu Autumn Bee 2017
A savoury tea if ever there was one, the Yiwu wows with a full-on classic sheng taste, reminiscent of pale mushrooms and roasted artichoke. A lighter hand when steeping, however, reveals a subtler side as well: a warm beeswax aroma, a creamy mouthfeel, and an edge of gooseberry are rounded out by a gentle acidity.
We also appreciate the excellent design on the wrapper; there's something just so familiar about it... In fact, this autumnal Sheng is handmade, and produced without fertilisers or pesticides, exclusively for Nannuoshan, and we are very pleased to have such a representative!
