This came as an offering from Angel and Teavivre.
One thing I love about Teavivre is when they say sample, they really mean it…VERY generous size, they allow you to have a real gongfu session.
I’m using one full sachet for a 5oz yixing pot. The cake chunks are always separated with care.
After a quick rinse, steep one is a little shy it seems. A bit sweet, slightly fuity with hints of astringency.
It gets interesting at steep three. Nice body and texture to this tea. To me, it’s really fruity.
Like a blend of grape and apple juice…sweet and tart at the same time. The typical young sheng astringency is building up, and that’s something I appreciate.
There’s also a certain woodsy finish to the sip.
I lost count of how many steeps I had, but there were many.
I really enjoyed this one.
Thank you so much Teavivre for the oppotunity.
