I’m pretty sure this just cured whatever ailment I may have had! I havent had a sheng session in quite some time, so I decided I should sit down and go for it. This was waaayy better than I last remember it. The flavors were definitely more prominent than before.

I opened the package and revealed an array of colors. The dry leaves ranged from a forest dull green to silver and gold tips. They carried the aroma of sweet pipe tobacco. I brewed this in my yixing pot. I washed them once and then flash steeped the rest of the session. This tea packs a punch! It has a powerful body encompassing qi and has an incredibly menthol bitter taste. This tight sensation did not dissipate for quite some time. I went well into steeping before the smoother flavors appeared. These flavors were of crystallized sugar and sweet stone fruit.The best thing about this brew is the after taste. These small twigs leave a succulent honeysuckle and plum taste in the back of your throat that you can taste long after drinking. These leaves had a greater expansion than last time; they nearly burst out of my pot! I love Teavivre shengs and this is just what my body needed. A powerful brew with an assortment of flavors and expansive depth to explore. I’m very happy to be feeling like myself again!

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best.

Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
