1113 Tasting Notes
I may have reviewed this tea before under a slightly different name. I’m a little confused about it!
ANYWAY a sample of this tea was part of my Christmas gift from Marzipan <3
I really didn’t enjoy my first steep of it this morning, but the 2nd steep is very very nice :D
It has a nice combination of aged and younger sheng flavors. Mmmmm :)
Happy Friday Steepster friends!
Aged sheng appears to be growing on me! That or I’m starting to find styles I actually enjoy.
I stole this sample from Marzipan when I went to her house a few weeks back :D Ok I didn’t steal it, she was very generous and willing to split some of her White2Tea samples with me!
I am drinking it today because Cheri was drinking it yesterday and the day before and talking about how awesome it is on Steepster chat! I agree, this is a very nice one :)
Still having trouble describing aged flavors. This one is sweeter and “cleaner” tasting than some of the others I’ve had. I guess some aged sheng tastes like raw, green lumber to me and this woody taste is more of a ripe, almost fruity wood with a more complex taste. Like the difference between the smell of a cheap piece of plywood and a fancy piece of apple or cherry wood maybe? I’m getting a little abstract here, sorry!
