It's all about

the feeling of drinking salted caramel. There's a bright salty flavor in here that pairs well with the underlying mellow nutty sweetness. Even though this is a young shou puer and there is some wet pile scent in the dry leaf, it washes away quickly in the rinse. The body and staying power are on the light side, but all said this is a pleasant easy-sipper for those who are decidedly in the sweet shou camp.
