been enjoying this one very much. It brews best in my burt duan ni clay pot from yunan sourcing which oddly enough looks exactly like the one in the picture.
The aroma of wet leaves for first several infusions is rich and deep.
Using min 15 sec steeps with 90 + water 100 ml/5g yields satisfying earthy brew.
It seems to last for about 5-7 solid infusions and then thins out on a steep curve.
If you keep the temp high and pot warm then there is no silty effect as I mentioned before.
Although I am sure there are more complex shengs out there, I think this one is a good purchase. If you want earthy coffe-like sheng this is probably for you.
Compared to 99 menghai the latter is more nuanced in flavor and aroma, and with a sparkling, (yet less robust) character.
