I find that the more sheng I drink the more I sort of come to crave it and like it…

This came as a sample from Puershop.com, the sample was pretty inexpensive and they give you a good amount to play around with. This is not an expensive cake anyway, the entire beeng is only $19.

This tastes like what it is, a Chinese green tea. It’s slightly earthy and woodsy with no extreme astringent or bitter flavors, it has a bit of a sweet aftertaste. I did accidentally leave my first steep too long which made the tea pretty harsh. But, I should know better! My second steep was around 30 seconds and that was a good amount for this one.

I’m not a sheng expert but thought this was a good value for the price, especially if you can keep the steeping times very short. It did not blow my mind but it’s quite ready to drink now…

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.
