I cannot recall the last time I had Sheng. For whatever reason I said to myself that today it was a must have. I brewed this up in the Yixing and I let it steep for maybe 3 minutes. When I poured it out an aroma of burnt orange and cloves filled the room with this heavenly scent. My first sip the liquid seemed to laugh at me as it went down, tickling me with this energy that only a fine Sheng has. The flavor is much better than my last tasting. My second cup I let steep for an eternity. When I poured it out the liquid was laughing at me from the cup, daring me to drink it. I am so tea drunk off of cup 1 that I think I will save it for later. The first cup made me wise….

I love your tasting notes! When I’m drinking sheng, I often think about how you would describe the tea, and my cup is better for it.

I’m with you…the flavor of this tea is amazing and only solidifies my love of sheng pu erh…been so busy that I haven’t had the chance to post and reviews, but I will be putting this one forward as it is fantastic

And I have been busy too. And this Sheng literally is still putting out how many days later? And this includes steepings of 18+ hours at a time.

Hum …reading this for the first time …it sounds as though this Sheng took you on a journey. Possibly a lovely tea buzz?! …Some like the 1998 xingyang have that effect and some others. …Anyway, nice review oh wise one!
