Having a Mandala Tea’s ’Wild Mountain" green sheng from 2011. I started this out with 11 grams that I broke off the chunk of tea I have. I separated it into smaller pieces. There are lots of whole leaf in this one with whole stems with the leaves attached. I brewed this in the yixing after a 10 second rinse. It started a golden color on the first brew after a 10 second steep.. This is nice and sweet on the first brew with hints of camphor, flowers and white grapes. I started the second infusion with a 10 second steep it comes out with more depth to it. The color is the same with the camphor touch and a slight pleasant bitternes that will coat and numb the tip of the tongue. I usually will only have one cup of sheng this late at night but this is the second cup and it leaves me wanting more. This is a very nice sheng, leaves appear to be a smaller “gongting” size about half the size of my smallest finger. The depth and complexity are nice and I may have to get a whole cake of this to age. Very enjoyable. Garret, Garret where do you find these great teas at

That’s right, John! That’s where I got it from :)

So very happy that you are enjoying this one. I was only able to have 120 cakes of it pressed as that was all of this mao cha that they had for me. But it’s a winner. Not many of them left. All of the sudden, they have been getting really popular and Jamie and I are going to have to buy a tong or two for our personal stashes before they are gone!

I love hearing your thoughts on this tea, John! Thank you so much. I am grateful.
