14 tasting notes

this is a very light tea, the color is a light yellow, the taste is very easy, not strong.
it reminds me of bamboo tea with a hint of mint and a little hay in the beginning, a typical easy going sheng flavor, it doesn’t really get stronger throughout the session.
later steepings remind of a milky oolong, i never had that oolong taste in a sheng before.
it could have potential for storage if it got stronger with time, but i am not sure if there is enough intense basic aroma in it for developing an intense aroma. maybe in the end with the milky oolong.
compared to other shengs it may be quite interesting as the hay and astringency and withered flowery aroma is only very light and might not get stronger.
it’s a mild and light but pleasing tea keeping you relaxed and fit.
