This tea isn’t ‘White2Tea’ quality, but it is delicious. This tea taste like Passion flower, honeysuckle and bee pollen. My mother has a huge garden in her back yard and actually grows passion fruit and honeysuckle. I harvest the flowers to make herbal tea, and this sheng reminded me of what that combination of pollen-powered flowers tasted like.
This sheng really shines in the first 5-8 steeps, but afterwards turns green and a bit bitter. Although this doesn’t hold out on great flavor on later steeps, it’s really good for what it’s worth.
I like this much better than Mandala’s other sheng, and is one of my favorites by them. I’d reccomend – to the least – getting a sample of this one.
