This brick was one of my first forays into sheng and I’ve really enjoyed seeing this tea change over the years. The green young smokey puer flavor has given way to a smooth aged puer showing me that sheng indeed does age into something more like a shu. Over the 9 years that I have owned this brick I’ve used a little less than half of the brick. The scent of the wet leaves is literally that of an old antique book store, all of the smoke and bitterness and astringency of the early years of this brick are nearly non-existent. The liqueur is no longer a pale green shu but is now chrystal clear leather brown. As I mentioned in my earlier reviews, this brick is made from heavily processed material but even with mulched material the liquid is clear. I brewed this time in a 125ml yixing with 210 spring water. 30 Secs first infusion 10 for subsequent infusions.

I’ve been drinking tea for about 15 years now. I started out with a couple of orders from Harney and Son and some local vendors and living in Utah good local tea vendors are very hard to come by… makes me think we might need another one, maybe mine?
