5.5g, 100mL at 100C.

Didn’t take particularly careful notes here, but the texture and sweet taste are the highlights of this tea. It’s got enough body to hold up on its own, and has the texture of like slightly unset jello but not in a bad way: just a little bit thick. Astringent at about Steep 3 but that clears rapidly. Really nice apricot huigan in the back of my throat, extremely sweet. Unfortunately, not a lot of qi or bodyfeel which I’m realizing I value a lot in sheng. At the price point this is a great daily drinker for those of you who prefer a sweeter profile tea that isn’t weak.

Flavors: Apricot, Grass, Sweet

MD-PhD Student, new to gongfu brewing and serious tea tasting but excited to learn. My favorite kinds of tea are oolongs and both Chinese & Japanese greens.
