2 Tasting Notes


I got this sheng puerh as a sample from the YS tea club and was eager to have a go at it! The first infusion came out very light and mellow with absolutely zero astringency or bitterness. Alas, there weren’t a lot to feast on for my taste buds in any direction. I found it a bit dull although it should be said that the taste was clean, fresh and nonintrusive. In the second infusion I pushed it a little more with a steep time of 30s to lure more flavors out of the leaves. This revealed a much more complex profile but also a hint of astringency. In the following steeps I lowered the steep time to 20 seconds and was rewarded with a sweet and richer experience. It was a mistake to brew it for 30 seconds the second time – the overall impression was a very pleasant sheng that I can recommend for times when you feel a little less adventurous :-)
