SIPDOWN! I’ve had a little bit of this kicking around for quite some time, and tonight I am finishing it up. I steeped it Western for 2 minutes, after a rinse of 15 s and a second rinse of 25 s. It smells very nice tonight, a fresh almost mushroom scent (what? haha) with some lovely caramel notes. So fresh and clean, perfect for the end of a day of rain on and off.
This tastes very good tonight. So fresh and clean, yet a bit of sweetness as well. I am loving the earthiness in this cup. I will have to try my other shu’s sometime soon, I am enjoying this cup more than I enjoyed previous cups of shu I think. Maybe my palate is changing a bit! See previous notes on this tea :)
