Sipdown, 126.

Nope. Shengs still not for me. I have to say, I do get a bit of crisp, fruity pear from this, although perhaps unripe pear there is no sweetness. Like perhaps an extremely dry white wine, except I like dry white wines. :P Slightly bitter and astringent, but the sharpness is followed by a remarkable smoothness. A tea of extremes, I guess. It’s like the woods in the spring, but not pine woods like many shengs I’ve had. Deciduous woods with the first buds coming out. An interesting tea.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
