This is a nice sheng. Sweet from the beginning with little bitterness and some astringency. The tea had a darker color than you would expect for a new sheng. It had a nice taste to it including a positive flavor note I failed to pick up on specifically.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 9.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. Overall this tea was quite good. I could have kept steeping it but want to drink something else.

Boiling 9 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
