From the Sheng Olympics. Thanks to Liquid Proust for putting it together.
I had this immediately after the Whispering Sunshine. The 1st steep is sweeter with less spice. 2nd steep was more interesting than the 1st steep, but still suffers in comparison to the Whispering Sunshine. Lots of cha qi. By the 4th steep I’m noticing some spice that wasn’t really there before. Also has a bit more bite to it. Really feeling the cha qi. The spice gradually submerged the sweetness as the dominant flavor, but the tea never achieved the complexity of the Whispering Sunshine.I suspect this tea suffered by comparison to the Whispering Sunshine. I found myself liking it better (and raising the score) as I got to the later steeps. It’s a bit more approachable, though and I enjoyed it on an absolute basis.
