This has been an awesome afternoon! My son Drew & I went out to lunch, & then I came home & spent the entire afternoon sipping teas like a crazy woman, packing up teas that I promised to send out (almost a month ago), slow roasting tomatoes from my garden, straining both milk & coconut milk Keifers & starting new batches for tomorrow, & drinking more tea! The tea I want to share with my Bodacious Babes arrived, & that’s ready to go! I still haven’t drank much from the HHTTB yet, so I may hang onto that box until next week. Maybe. I’d really like to mail it tomorrow. By the way, it is Huge! Tea Sipper, you’ll never have to buy tea for a year, LOL, maybe longer, as long as you are willing to just drink the stuff that’s in there.
So in the middle of roasting tomatoes, picking & slicing peppers for the pepper steak that’s in the crock pot, measuring out teas, etc, I’ve been sipping. This is a really interesting looking Sheng from NofarS.
It’s not really all that Sheng-like in my opinion, very mild, reminding me of the oaty taste of Ya Bao, but with a tangy twist of lemon! I’ve been sipping cups of this, along side cups of a shu from NofarS as well. I often enjoy the contrast of a Sheng & a Shu, sipped side by side. Other times I’ll sip a sheng for an hour or so, & then break out a Shu. I love them both, & the contrast between the bright ‘raw’ flavors to the super mellow smooth earthy taste is awesome!
