This is a wonderful Sheng! Thanks so much Terri HarpLady for letting me try it :D

So much going on here…where do I start? Pleasantly astringent, mineral notes, a little bit of resin or fresh cut wood, and a wonderful strong cha qi. I’m still in the midst of several steepings, so I may update this later if it morphs again. It is really opening up for me now :) It is a little grassy with a faint fruity or floral aftertaste…gah, I love sheng so much! Gives me a happy :D :D :D

Not bitter at all, but astringent to the point that maybe some people wouldn’t prefer it.

If you want a REALLY fruity sheng, you should check out Butiki’s new offering…its crazy!
