I brewed this in the Gaiwan this time. I feel this is the best vessel for truly tasting a tea. It’s blowing me away. It is a touch bitter on the 1st and 2nd steeps but it’s a very flavorful bitterness. It is an incredible eye opener. This so different from any other Sheng that I have had so far. One of those teas that you feel with each sip. I cannot place a particular flavor other than earth and roots and vines. This is what’s coming to mind. This tea is scary good. And the bitter taste lingers and it’s a beautiful bitterness. I am upping the score on this incredible tea….
