Singing Moon - 8582 Sheng Puerh 2001 - 2 oz
The health of the old-growth trees from this venerable 1985 recipe are evidenced by the robust appearance of the leaves like combed hair. Singing Moon is smooth and round with distinct flavors of deep forest leaves after a rainstorm. Clean, clear and mildly unctuous, this tea feels hydrating with a poised balance of pleasant bittersweetness. Curiously, the aroma is slightly minty and strong. This is a meditative tea with great patience that leaves you feeling rooted in the earth. The name Singing Moon refers to the first moon of Autumn as this is a great mid-aged Sheng for the Fall and Winter as we move into the colder, dryer months.
