For lovers of lasting boldness and soothing aromas.
The producers of this colorfully-wrapped bing have managed to bring aromatics more often present in sheng pu'er to a shu, with its thick mouthfeel and full body. The bitterness typical of Bulang tea is here just a pleasant touch of cocoa powder and sassafras, while the wet leaves give off a strong aroma of camphor and sourdough, just detectable in the final infusion. It bears the benefit of being easily able to control the strength of the infusion, with a little less time for a more drawn out flavor, or a little more for a true shu intensity—and to come back to reality.
