This was included with my last order as a sample. I know I have tried it a few times before but after watching Davids video I am confident that I will finally brew the mysterious Sheng correctly. In previous tastings of fine Sheng I may have used too much leaf and my steep times were way tooo long and these potent teas will make you pay. I basket brewed this one cup style. I did a quick steep to wash and off to tea nirvana. The first cup was mellow and fruity and numbed my mouth nicely. There was a tingling that remained between sips. My brow began to perspire. My body was becoming calm yet I had the energy to do anything. My second steep was this luscious nectar that was becoming stronger and more alive. An incredibly intense tea even with a 3 second steep!
I am now looking at perhaps 18 more steepings. In my previous experience with Sheng they seem to last forever. As of now it’s a beautiful day and it’s time to play. More fun with Sheng later….

This is what tea is all about. You shared a beautiful story of how this Sheng made you feel…the glow and exhilaration…then the realization of how glorious the world is in the moment.
You grabbed it.

I’m glad that you had more success brewing this tea. Enjoy the nice weather! You’re lucky, the humidity is climbing towards 75% for me, so I;m going to be inside for most of today :-/
