2018 Jing Mai Mountain from Yunnan Sourcing. A nice shu, smooth and full-bodied.
Also featuring the last of Stefan Andersson's shibos from puer.sk. I was lucky enough to catch this beauty before they ran out.

Oh, nice to see your hygrometer and beautiful Shiboridashi. Pu’erh sound good too :) Looks like summer is around the corner in northern Italy.

Summer lasts longer for me - say from april to mid-october - but yeah, most people would say it's coming. A good time to stock up on pu'erh. :mrgreen:

Dipping into some 2007 Wu Liang "Single Arbor" Purple Sheng Puer that has been in dry storage since receiving it as a gift 12 years ago. I remember this being very strong when I tried it new. It has aged quite nicely, much smoother but retaining some astringency/bitterness that balances the floral and sweetness, thick mouth feel, hints of green apple.

This is inspiring. I feel like I should go back and revisit some of my puerh at least once a year, in some semi-organized way, with notes.

2019 White2Tea Astro Kittens
BItterness with an underlying dragonwell note. Definite lao man e vibes. Maybe the green tea taste is because it is so young, could visit again in a few months. It's really bitter, and not particularly sweet. There might even be man xing long in here, it seems like all the bitter areas mixed together. It doesn't contain that bulang sweetness or complex bulang flavors. It's as if my entire tongue only had bitter taste buds and was full of grapefruit peel.
That's what it said on the tin, so... when I'm in the mood for something upsettingly hardcore, I know what to drink.
