I had the opportunity to taste this in the store on Thursday. We went through about 4 steeps I think and while I preferred the 1st steep, the subsequent ones were also excellent.

It was buttery, smooth, and woodsy. Another excellent offering from Shang Tea. We also tried the White Tea Wu-Long Premium which, IIRC, has been aged longer than this. Both were great but both my mother & I preferred this one. The longer aged one had a somewhat sharper quality. Not putting this in my cupboard since I wasn’t the one who actually bought it, but I can snag some from Mom anytime so it is still available for swap. :)

So awesome you got to try them both! I am going to write a review of the Special Reserve one very soon, as I have some on hand and have been trying to get more Shang Tea reviews written lately.

I tried the regular Wulong and the Special Reserve Wulong on separate occasions and I thought I had preferred the regular as well. I wanted to find the specific differences in taste so I asked the folks at the shop if we could brew them both and do a blind taste-test. We did that and after a few steepings, the one I consistently liked the most was the Special Reserve, so that’s the one I came home with.
