This is part of the Pu-Er sipdowns samples That I am slowly, but surly getting threw.

Ok, to be short and sweet I love almost everything about this tea. The smokey cedar notes combined with sweet and savory berry notes is good. However, the strong floral aspect of it is throwing me for a loop. It is that kinda of perfume floral, the kind that has a bite to it.

The later steepings and a long 1 minuet leaf drain steep I found to me be more pleasant. The floral bite isn’t as strong and it is more vaporous.

Overall I can tell this is a very nice and complex sheng, but I am having a hard time getting into it. It’s floralness is just so odd to me.
