Decent but slightly disappointing shou! I got this tea from my CLT order, and honestly I thought it would’ve been better after reading the reviews online. Leaves that were decent but having a unusually high stem proportion, aroma that is rich, especially in the wet leaf, and liquor that is dark and vibrant. Flavour that was decent but seemingly unidimensional, texture that was thick and juicy, character that was average with the session not having much variability over time. Finish & aftertaste was decent, nice lingering mushroom yumminess at the tail end of each cup, cha-qi that is slightly noticeable especially in the stomach and the head, and steep longevity that is bang average for shous, ending about steep 10-12.

Overall, decent but slightly disappointing. 2000 Old Warrior is better in my opinion.
