54 Tasting Notes

Drank again today. Great looking material! Pretty standard young sheng profile but lacking any pizazz as far as bite or sweetness goes. Feels muted and brews out quick.

54 tasting notes

My first shomei. The feels thin and thick at the same tome, hard to explain. Kind of like southern sweet tea, it runs like water but is thick in the mouth. It coats the mouth and throat well and has some slight woody and spice notes. The rest is mostly sugary and slightly flower. More of a brown sugar.

Been giving my sample a heavy dose of humidity since last tasting. Flavor and aroma is definitely improving. Starts with very faint wet storage taste. Some bitterness and floral notes, no astringency.

Perhaps it’s in an awkward stage but this tea is somehow lacking in flavor over all. It’s hard to describe. I will need to try and increase the leaf ratio. Initial flavor is of eucalyptis and slight camphor/menthol. Delayed sweet apricot huigan, some bitterness. Thin body. Some qi. Vegetal and some umami.

Flavors: Apricot, Eucalyptus, Menthol, Umami, Vegetal
