This tea has a stable, warming character. Most often I gravitate toward puer of the smooth and mellow variety – this particular aged sheng is best described as smooth and heavy so I have learned to lighten up on the leaf. Seems to be made with high grade material. It is clean with good body and the sweetness is of the deep meaty variety. Nice mouthfeel with a little tongue-tickling and a light cooling sensation. Dark brown leaves with a few tips and twigs. Clear and bright orange liquor with a nutty sweet aroma. Good durability (I’ve steeped it 12 times). Age has served this tuo well.

I drink mostly puer and sometimes what we as Westerners think of as black tea.

I no longer assign numerical ratings to teas because our enjoyment of tea is very subjective. Reactions to a particular tea vary from person to person and within the same person across different tasting sessions.

My tea notes are simply comments reflecting my impression at that specific point in time. They are helpful to me and if they happen to be useful to someone else that is good.

For me, tea is magical with its ability to transform by bringing one back to center and inspiring both peace and contentment.
Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since.
