It’s late here on the Jersey Coast and the full moon is making everything shine. I am going to brew up the Yixing several times and fill up a glass jug and then leave it outside in the 35 degree cold. This is my attempt at Moonshine Sheng. The brew is a golden burnt orange hue. As I was making my tea I noticed it had the most wonderful aroma. And for whatever reason I still cannot determine a flavor to compare a Sheng to. They are so unique and in a class of their own. This tea promises a " floaty feeling ". I have’nt drank much but between the full moon and this delightful tea, I am floating….

Where did you buy yours?

Grace

Do you know where it was stored before they got it? Are they storing in the USA? I just got one stored in Guangzhou recently, it tastes much different than the others I have tried

Charles Thomas Draper

Grace I am assuming it was stored here in the USA. I would think that different storage locales would affect the quality.
