ive grown to enjoy this tea a lot since its the only sheng left i like that i have. (the other sheng i have tried and still have i don’t like as its too weak for me. so i did not review it).

i also took a nice chunk out of the strainer and sucked on it like a candy for a little while. quite bitter. but it got enjoyable after a while.

this tea is lovely!

new score: 80 -> 100

a decent tea:

when i smell the leaves dry, they have a spicy smells to them.

when i smell the leaves wet, it has a strong asparagus smell to it.

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell honey.

when i taste the brewed tea, i taste a slight asparagus taste, a slight sheng puerh like honey taste and strong spices.

the color of the brewed tea is a bright amber.

i was confused… i did not know if this was a sheng puerh or a green tea. it has some puerh taste, however it has the green tea taste too.. so confusing….

i rate this tea a 75 because it was good but not the best.

many thanks to liquidproust for sending me this decent sample :)
