The 1st steep without rinsing is 30 seconds or so. It’s mild with redwood and cedar forest flavors. The 2nd was steeped for 30 as well and it’s a lovely reddish brew with an intoxicating feel. I am getting the warm feeling and I actually started to perspire. The clear liquor is pure and crisp with that electric feel in my mouth. I can only imagine what it’s doing inside of me. I am only going to do 3 steeps because once again it’s a gorgeous day. I will leave the rest in the Yixing for tonight. I am coming to the conclusion that Shus are my favorite teas period. There is wonderful feeling that i get from them. This is why we drink tea. When I went back to brew number 3 I noticed the nugget was still intact. I gave it a gentle nudge and steeped for a bit longer. I knew this cup was going to be special. The Redwood and Cedar is now a dense forest with lighting in the sky. This is a very, very special tea….

I can’t wait to have my own brick of this one. This is the kind of Shu that makes me want to drink pu-er all the time. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Your description is wonderful, Charles. I know that I’ll remember it the next time I drink this. Cheers!
