“Gold Barrel” is a Shu Puerh harvested from 200-year-old trees in the Madeng garden, produced in a very small quantity (presumably only 15kg were made), handmade. After the second steep you may begin to realize why this Shu Puerh is so expensive: Cha Qi is strong with this one, something between an aged Sheng and an aged Shu. The raw material is truly wonderful, hats off to the tea master. The flavour profile includes something along the lines of cottage cheese, lemons and dried fruits. Juicy, creamy with a slight sweetness. Soothes and warms you up.
