Derp, I put my note in the spring 2015, moving it over to Autumn 2015
Alright. This review took awhile. Lots of hype on this tea (so many fellow bloggers love it) and some weird “how’d this come out so soon?” drama, but I finally drank this tea. Twice. (only twice, I only had enough for 2 sessions).
Using a standard ratio I use, and temp I like for young sheng, 1g to 15ml 200F, this is super light. Lightest sheng I’ve had so far in my tea drinking days. The texture is very nice and thick, with nice floral cherry notes, wood, vegetal, avocado and butter – but super delicate light notes. I only got 10 steepings. I was unhappy.
So I came back to this tea and went insane. 1g to 10ml, so 9 grams to a 90ml teapot. Boiling water. I dumped all the leaf I had left and steeped it like IDGAF. Much better – the intensity is ballzy, an excellent sweet bitterness, nice avocado notes, and it melted my brain in 7 cups. I got 16 infusions, probably could of gotten 18 or so, but I got hungry for burritos. It’s nice, but expensive.
