Very drinkable for a young sheng. Leaves have a pronounced barn smell which transforms into forest scents after brewing. Astringency is very high which is to be expected from a young tuo but it isn’t off putting. Liquor is colored green with a slight trace of orange.
I steeped this one with water slightly below boiling point as the young sheng would be destroyed with boiling water

I know your note is old, but I just wanted to say I thought this was smooth too! :)

Very long, individual leaves. After a short brew with almost boiling water it gives of an amber/green liquid with a very floral scent. The tea itself came out slightly bitter, but not at all unpleasant if you’re used to chinese teas where some bitterness is a desireable trait.
After varying brew times and temperatures it comes out consistently tasty. Bitterness can be controlled this way so you can reduce it if you’re not a fan.

After breaking up the tuo and letting it air out for a couple of weeks I tried it again. All the fishiness is gone and the tea is really pleasant to drink, thick & smooth with a great aroma. Considering the price:quality ratio this is a very good tea afterall

Somewhat bland loose shu pu. Lasts only 5-6 infusions, not very high on cha qi or hui gan. Since its not that strong in flavour it serves as a decent daily drinking tea, best enjoyed with dim sum or similar snacks.

Great looking tea streaked with shiny silvery tips. Brewed it ‘grandpa’ style, 3 gms in a 200 ml tall glass. Very delicate flavour with a hint of very pleasant bitterness in the throat. It has a lovely tropical forest fragrance. It lasted for 4 infusions.

What a tough cake to break into, phew… Still has slight fishy smell thats almost gone after a couple rinses. The liquor is thick and creamy as advertised. Not that complex in taste but a strong hui gan

Has a strong fishy smell and taste. Also a strong muddy component. Has a long lasting hui gan and decent cha qi. Didn’t like it one bit cause of the overwhelming fishiness, Maybe it’ll improve with time!?
