OMG this was an amazing sheng.

I drank on the leaves all day, towards the end just leaving them in my cup to continue to steep as I drink…

The first few steeps were a bit woody, but not in a bad way at all. There was some gentle smokiness too. No bitterness or astringency that I could find. Usually I enjoy sheng with a more bold fruity or floral taste/scent, which I did not get much of here at all, but wow, as this one began to open up as the steeps progressed and it sweetened, it was magical nonetheless! I guess I can appreciate the “sweet wood” type of sheng after all! I had a rough afternoon and the energy from this really helped me power through. Clarity in a cup! Thanks very much to my special Steepster friend for a sample of this one :)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.
