It's all about

An aged white tea profile in a younger sheng puer. The dry leaves are so beautifully floral I wasn't expecting much beyond florals in the cup. But instead these aromas only make an appearance in the aftertaste. The liquor hits deeper honeyed medicinal notes I recognize most often in aged white teas. The body is light-ish but with a pleasantly mineral texture, balancing well with the strength of the bitter/sweet flavors and aromas.
