Used half the sample for this tea and brewed gongfu today. I was doing a little reading up on the tea on YS’s website with Scott’s blog about the tea and how it’s processed while I had my first infusion.This tea has no bitterness. Not surprising since it’s a 2005 tea. It brews up a dark golden colour. As soon as I tried this tea , I loved it but had trouble figuring out exactly what it was I loved. It was juicy and had a thick mouth feel to it. It wasn’t a light sheng, definitely a full body. It was only after it cooled down that the sweet honey notes became more prominent. That’s what I was loving.
I did about 5 infusions and then I was done. I can’t get past 4 or 5 because I just can’t drink that much tea. The tea was pretty consistent though. A really good quality sheng.
