Just out of curiosity, since I’ve noticed a lot of ‘by unknown-china’ did you order these? or are them from local sources that don’t state the company?

Kirkoneill1988 I ordered them from Aliexpress but the company and tea name is unknown. Or I couldent find anything

the tuo had a flower on it. it was a white flower. alas, i don’t know what flower it is.

when i smell the leaves dry, they smell musty.

when i smell the leaves wet, i smell floral and popcorn.

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell popcorn. :)

when i taste the brewed tea, i taste popcorn, floral and peaches.

i rate this a 100 even though it was very cheap and came with my order from ali express. it tastes awesome!

an amazing tea!

this one comes in a white wrapper with light peach color at the very back and a green dot on the top with white letters.

when i looked at the leaves/wrapper i thought it was a sheng., but it turned out to be a shou.

when i smell the leaves dry, they smell musty.

when i smell the leaves wet. it smells like a sheng mixed with shou.

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell earth and sweetness.

when i taste the brewed tea it has amazing sweetness and earthy taste!

i rate this a 100 even tho its from the pack from ali express and is low quality and cheap. it just tastes too amazing and reopened my interest in shou.

an awesome tea!

this tea came in a white wrapper with a orangish peach circle on top with white letters.

when i smell the leaves dry, they smell musty.

when i smell the leaves wet, i smell a fishy smell (which i don’t mind).

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell a fishy smell and some earth.

when i taste the brewed tea, there is no fishy smell. however, there is a sweet earthy taste.

i noticed green stem like particles included in the leaves. maybe this is ginseng or green tea? i don’t know.

i rate this tea a 100 because even though its cheap (came included with the $1.50 order from aliexpress), and its low quality, its still amazing. if you can find this tea, i suggest you try it
