Quantitea's Qiao Mu Lao Sheng Cha!
Quantitea'sQMLSC ( because I am too exhausted from typing it once to type it twice) is a delicious sheng. First and second steep are both deep rich amber, sweet and earthy, slightly smokey with a touch of camphor, but just a touch.
Qiao Mu Lao Sheng Cha is a Sheng Puer from 2001. It was harvested in the mountains of the Yunnan Province in the spring and is processed into maocha then aged. Naturally occurring microbes ferment the dry tea leaves over time causing a shift from a young sheng puerh into a well-rounded, complex tea.
This tea is earthy, notes of bark with a hint of cinnamon, herbaceousness like geranium greens, oak smoke, camphor, and subtle green grapes, with an underlying rose fragrance
