334 Tasting Notes
I like smoky teas. But last time I brewed it western method it was too much for me. I could not get rid of smoky flavor for long time after I finished my cup.
Today I decided to brew in gaiwan. 5oz+1tsp+1/1/1. i combined all steeps in one cup.
This way smokiness was minimal and tea was so sweet
Here we go. As always I start with shortest steeps possible like 5 sec and slowly increase the time.
This shu is amazing. Clear amber color, leather smell but not strong. Very easy to drink. I do feel sparkling. My palate is not trained yet to recognize all the notes. All I can say I really enjoyed it.
Free sample w/purchase – thank you. I wasn’t into sheng but wanted to try. It’s nice, some astringent but pleasant. After I had 3 cups there is a tingling sensation in my mouth, kinda cool and minty.
Thank you so much TeaExplorer for sharing this fabulous tea with me. Your notes are great and I can only add that I love it. It’s clear red sweet and not boring. I’m on 7th steep. Only short steeps like 15/15/30 sec. My 10 yr old daughter came to me asking " whatcha drinking" and finished my cup and asked for more. On my shopping list 100%
