I drank this on Christmas Day and I thought at first that they mislabeled this. I could of swore it was a Shu. Today I am revisiting this beauty knowing full well that is a Sheng. The first cup has this lovely sweet mustiness. This tea is a true luxury. Dark and seductive. Truly one of those teas that every tea connoisseur must have at least once. I personally put it on my must have list after reading Amy ohs glowing review that rings true. This is the true beauty of Steepster and the internet. A lady on the other side of the USA can tell us all about this lovely Sheng that comes from a shoppe in San Francisco. I ordered almost immediately. Talk about conquering haste! My second cup was steeped for much longer than I would normally do. The result is nothing short of superb. This is without a doubt the finest Sheng I have had the pleasure to imbibe. It is making me glow. I am also relaxed beyond belief. It definitely is a tea for quiet contemplation.

Very true… Steepster (and hence the internet) has broadened the teas I consider tasting and places that I will purchase from. Being in Ecuador has made me look for the few people that will ship tea abroad and be more aware of people who travel to faraway places and are able to bring me new teas to taste!

I am just psyched to be able to get all of this info about great teas. And to meet some cool people who are like minded….

I am so glad to hear that there is a sheng which is more like a shu and less like scraping the inside of the walls of a cabin in the woods. I will make sure this one is included in my impending order.

It’s all that and more….
