1x light rinse

Light steep: I taste/smell; light
->musty, honey, spices, earth. I’m not sure if this is a sheng or a black tea. It has a funky name like a puerh would so, I’m thinking this is a sheng. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Medium steep: I taste/smell; medium funky -> earth, musty, honey, spices. I’m Totally confused now.

Heav steep: I taste/smell; medium
-> earth, honey, musty, spices.

Can someone please tell me what tea this is? It is lovely with a strong somewhat unpleasant cha qi. So I rate an 80

Medium steep: I taste/smell;
light -> cream, smoke. Medium -> spices, honey, green.

Heavy steep: I taste/smell;
slight -> cream, smoke.
Medium -> honey, spices. Strong metallic.

All in all a very yummy tea. Nice tastes and cha qi. I rate a 90 because there’s not enough smoke, and the metallic kick at the end was not too nice.

Many thanks to misty peak teas for this free sample.

PS: i guess this is not a good tea for my stomach. i had some burning in my lower gut after drinking this tea. i’m not deducting points or saying this tea is bad for you. i’m just saying “people, please remind me to never drink sheng younger than 3 years, thanks.”
