I’ve been drinking this exclusively for the past 3 days as I await my YS order that I placed in a panic earlier this week after realizing that I was completely out of sheng. I can’t tell if this is really a fantastic tea or I just haven’t had enough shou to know any better. Either way it doesn’t really matter, I guess, because I’m enjoying this tea a lot. It’s cheap enough that I can brew 10g at a time in my 180ml clay and not feel guilty about it. It’s not particularly complex and doesn’t really evolve much across steepings but that’s not what I really need out of this tea. What I need is some consistent, forgiving, soupy, rich shou and this is it. I suspect it’s good grandpa style as well.
