Brewed 15 grams in the yixing for this one. I gave a 10 second wash to begin.It has the aroma of a damp forest. The brew is almost as dark as other shou of this age. It has a distinctly lighter taste than most shous I have drank. My guess would be a shorter fermentation on this one . It gives an almost cross between a peach and a near ripened plum. Avery easy tea to drink. It has a very nice flavor without being to “assertive” as some can be. This will move up my chart for these reasons. Nice , smooth and a touch of fruit.
