Got this as a sample on my Yunnan Sourcing order. I brought out 10 grams into the Gaiwan to brew. Gave it a quick rinse to open up. Aroma of slight floral on this one. Not in your face but a light aroma.
This one has no smokiness to it at all. No astringency and a very good mouthfeel to it. It has hints of a slight woodiness and honey with some flower to it. It is very smooth and easy to drink compared to some of the other Hai Lang Hao teas. It is not punchy or in your face but nice and easy to drink. It gives a nice feeling of relaxation after drinking and the sweetness continues after the cup is empty. Actually day 2 on this one and it has progressed very well. A nice evening sheng that is great to unwind with.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Wood

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 15 sec 10 g 10 OZ / 295 ML

Every time I read one of your reviews, it makes me want to become a better pu’erh drinker :-)
I admit to it: I’m a mrmopar wannabe!

Sounds like a good one. The smokiness for me takes awhile to get used to so I prefer non-smokey shengs right now.

This has been on my list for a weeks now. I need to just go for it.

Nice review, as always!
So I have to ask…how big is the Gaiwan?
In my Sheng drinking, I have been mostly using 2 – 4 G to a 4oz gaiwan or yixing, which initially seemed very intense to me, but lately I’ve been starting to go a little heavier with some.

And also a very modest one!

Terri 4 oz Gaiwan usually about 10 grams and I do 3 really quick steeps in a big 12 oz cup.

Wow! I’m probably missing out on something by using so much less!
