The aroma from the first steep aroused my curiosity. I had never smelled anything like it. The first cup is bursting with flavor. I used one of those tiny cups that accompany Yixings and I left the rest in the pot. It was strong !! The flavor to me is mysterious. I cannot pinpoint any particular profile. This is a very unique sheng. A very unique tea period. I feel if I did not steep the first pot so long I would be better able to judge this fine tea. As I continue with the process, it appears to be getting better.
