Just a flying visit with this inexpensive little shupu. I'm not drinking too many of these teas nowadays, but perhaps I should given their warming effect on cold autumnal days.
I think this sample is from RJ, but neglected to make a note on receiving it - danke schone, if so!
This was a surprisingly active shupu, with a good, thick texture and plenty of sweetness that sits nicely in the throat. If I were looking for a daily office shupu, this would be a good candidate, being priced at less than $8 at Yunnan Sourcing. I've never heard of the factory or the brand before, and imagine that this is from the recent "new wave" of factories.
Having no photos for this tea, I instead offer you a mushroom from the park. I'd love to be a professional mycologist, but perhaps I'd just eat my way through my specimens, rather than study them...
