This doesn’t smell like much when dry. After a rinse steeping the wet leaves smell sweet, like honey graham crackers. I have been rising my ripe pu-erhs twice.

Aged shou rarely tastes like much to me. This one isn’t much different. It’s only a little sweet, a little nutty, a little creamy, and not fishy at all. It’s somewhat bland but still enjoyable. I enjoy this tea for soothing a raw throat.

This tea smells slightly tart and a little fruity. The first couple steepings taste a little smokey and then slightly tart, eventually sweetening more. After a few steepings it starts to leave an after-drinking mouth-feel like ceylon tea with milk. This is not currently one of my favorite shuos.

This tea may have changed due to the container it was stored in. I am using an air tight container which I believe had no smell beforehand, but I may be mistaken.

This reminds me of a dancong, but less tart and more smooth chocolate-like. This is one of the smoothest oolongs I’ve had so far.

This is the least smokey young sheng I’ve had so far. It smells a little smokey dry, but it smells fruity when wet. It tastes slightly fruity and I enjoyed eating it with some smokey gouda cheese.

It smells somewhat sweet, like tutti-frutti. It tastes less floral than it smells. I haven’t fallen in love with Dancongs yet, but this is one of the tastier ones I’ve had so far.

I don’t know whether this is a shu or a sheng. Is this what sheng becomes after 17 years of aging? It’s not as potent and fishy as most of the shu I drink. It seems slightly smokey, but not nearly as smokey as the young sheng I’ve had.

The flavor is subtle and a little grassy, but I enjoy it.

Fairly smokey and a little bitter. I think I’m still not a fan of sheng.

I really like this tea. It’s reminiscent of a silver needle white tea (tastes soft and fuzzy), but it’s rich like a black tea.

I brewed 4 grams in my 4 oz. gaiwan, starting at about 8 seconds for the first steeping.
