Begin Again - Yiwu Mountain Chang Tai Sheng Puerh 2003 - 2 oz.
With ostensibly greater maturity than most teas from this time period, Begin Again is an excellent example of a mid-aged Yiwu Mountain Sheng Puerh. The Changtai Tea Group's early pressings of Yiwu Mountain leaves during the late 90's until roughly 2004 are perhaps the most sought-after. The astringency of this tea has completely mellowed over time, leaving a nice structure to the body. Very clean and well-balanced with slight grassy, woodsy flavors, yet difficult to capture in words. Begin Again is somehow beyond simile or comparison because it stands so distinctly on its own. As soon as you think you can describe this tea, it evades you, and thus the name, which also refers to the great patience of the tea. The Qi is calming and grounding, but seems to bring underlying feelings to the surface- a trait shared by multiple drinkers as we were first discussing this tea. Another very special tea from Yiwu Mountain.
