- Very fine old shou
- Taiwan dry storage (very clean taste)
- Traditional lotus ‘chen xiang’ (aged tea aroma)
- Calming Qi, good aftertaste and thickness.
Golden needle white lotus is the name given to various shou puerh made from 80s (or earlier) to today, both as loose leaf (80s-90s) and cake (more recently). Generally a premium grade of shou puerh given its small buds and leaf composition, having a flavour that’s both concentrated, dense and in this case also really clean.
This is the only kind of shou we like to drink: the long dry storage gives it a very clean taste while still being thick, soupy, with good presence in mouth and throat, generally a very fine shou and with beautiful aromas.
From taste and history me and Mr Chen believe this to be most likely a 1980s vintage, but I’m not 100% certain (shou is harder to date by taste than sheng), it might be early-mid 90s. Brews dark and thick.
