I saw most of the 2015 cakes have sold out at Crimson Lotus so I had to get a cake of this while it was still in stock. I was sure from the reviews that I would love it so didn’t bother with any samples—Just went ahead and bought it.
I was right. This is an excellent sheng. I used 5g in my gaiwan with 90C water. I got plenty of steeps from it (Maybe up to 6 or 7- that’s a lot for me). It had a fresh taste to it. Maybe that’s the “green” others are picking up. It’s not like a green tea but just has that fresh tea taste. I did not encounter much bitterness at all in any of the steeps. It had a slight creaminess with a bit of fruitiness. Not as sweet as some shengs but there was still a bit of sweetness. A really great tea for drinking daily.
Also want to add that this tea did not have too much energy kick to it. That’s another reason that makes it great for drinking plenty of steeps and having often.
Flavors: Creamy, Fruity
