Of all the new boutique shou being made these days like Hai Lang Hao, Crimson Lotus, Yiwu mountain tea, this Raspberry pine is my favorite. That one is quite good and unique too. I’d like to see the Raspberry pine teas pressed into cakes or mini tuos.
My favorite of all the Pu Eh tesd
Raspberry Pine is just really cool ... and soft and tasty ... But berry notes are just super
So nice soft, sweet rasperry, milky. Can be brewed for many brews. Very pleasant ripe.
Fired up the 3rd (final) session of my sample of 2018 "Raspberry Black Pine" ripe before getting to some yard work today. . .
The aroma was creamy and smelled a lot like slightly underripe raspberries, later woody tones turned up.
The taste was somewhat bitter, but even when my spout got clogged and it oversteeped a good deal, it was not overpowering. Actually the stronger, thicker steeps were my favorites. Flavor was also smooth, creamy and sweet, raspberry is very present in first steeps. I didnt notice so much the pine, but the mouthfeel was oily and thick. The later steeps reminded me of the flavor a lot of the ripe thai teas from @tea_side end on- woody and grain notes. A very dynamic experience!
One of my favorite ripe teas, for sure.
