I have really been impressed with What-Cha teas because all of their teas are perfectly intact-there are no broken, mishapen, or dusty pieces in the bags-just perfect tea leaves.
These dry leaves are really pretty, long purple needle shapes.
If you like young sheng, this is one for you to try!
Crazy scent to the leaves after I rinsed them in my gaiwan a couple of times. Really smells like a young, very stern sheng. Very petrol scented with a little bit of edamame to it. Liquor also smells very petrol. (I used green wood in the flavors section, as Steepster doesn’t include petrol in it’s choices) (I didn’t bother trying to add petrol to the Steepster choices :)
Wet leaves reveal themselves to be long, gorgeous green super buds.
Flavor is definitely like young sheng but it is very smooth and not bitter or astringent, just hard core petrol flavor. It has a thick and creamy mouth feel as well. Later as I am done drinking it, I feel it coating my chest area so it does have a biting and a bit of a burning effect so could be a good one to drink if you want to open your chest area for deep breathing.
This is not my favorite tea from What-Cha but I love that I was able to purchase 10g of it to try without the risk of buying a huge amount and not enjoying it. So I really like that about What-Cha as a company.
