I don’t know where I got this tea from. One of my August TTBs I think.
Anyway, I feel like dancing because this is the first time I’ve enjoyed a sheng. Evidence of my changing taste buds I suppose. I liked it so much I brewed it over and over! I think the leaf ratio had something to do with it too. I covered the bottom of my gaiwan with about 2 layers of leaves. The flavour was pleasant, not overpowering. A savoury roasty taste plus some sweetness from the sugar I added.
5 steeps: Rinse, 5s, 10s, 15s, 25s, 35s
