Thank you Nicole for your generous sample.
its only Shang Tea today. i want to sample everything to place an order (they have sale till March 8th). I’ve been very impressed with Shang. This tea is great quality. Prepared in 150ml gaiwan 3.5 g 185F
1st steep 10sec produced malty cocoa tea with some light tree floral notes
then i decided to increase temp and time
2nd steep 200F 1min whoa this tea is strong and bold. dark chocolate and very pronounced roasted flavors.
I think this tea is great gongfu style. I didnt really like those roasted flavors. steeping short you can notice sweetness progressing each time you brew

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 0 min, 15 sec 3 g 5 OZ / 150 ML
