I just got my Sheng sampler in the mail! My first tasting is the 2006 Artisan Revival. I brewed it western style in a basket. The directions stated 1 tsp for 2.5 minutes. I had to let it go longer because I just felt it was not ready. It’s very smooth and comforting. I am getting orange and clove aromas. It is definitely not like other Pu-Erhs that I have had that somewhat musty. This is my first tasting of a truly fine Pu-Erh. When I brew it again it will be in the Yixing with more leaves. Even though I feel I should have used more leaf, I can still see it’s a fantastick tea. It’s very comforting to the mind and body….

I am an avid surfer, gardener, golfer and freespirit. I have been a tea drinker forever. Tea has provided me with contentment. I love White, Oolong, Green, Black and Pu’er. I do not care for flavored tea and nor will I comment on it.
