I am amazed at what a difference 12 degrees of temperature makes. This time I used boiling water during my steeping session and it made a really big difference. From the first steeping this tea had a very sweet and floral taste, with 200 degree water it took 4 steepings to get that taste to come out. With the boiling water there was a very smokey undertone that was not present during my last steeping. I really had to shorten my steeping times to prevent the smokiness from overshadowing the other flavors. This is a really good Sheng and it is an excellent bargain at $15 for 357g.
