I’ll be the first one again to review :)
I’ve been craving a good Sheng session, and my Berylleb order came in. I dived into this right off the bat. I opened the package and took in a deep smoky aroma. It carried a slight aged scent. The beeng was of long darkened curls with a few brilliant gold strands standing out. I broke a generous chunk and placed inside my warmed yixing to open up. The scent broadened to the charred remains of blackwood forest after a firestorm. This brew had some intense smoky tones; however, the taste was surprisingly different. The initial sip had a light oak base and a delectably sweet aftertaste. It wasn’t a nectar sweet tone, rather it was a sugar cane sweetness. This smooth taste lasted for quite awhile, and I swear I could even taste the cane itself. The qi from this brew was prominent with the first drink, but it faded soon after. I can still feel a slight subtle presence. This is a great sweet treat. It did not hit the spot though, and I will definitely be exploring my other shengs until I am satisfied, hahah.
Flavors: Char, Oak wood, Smoke, Sugarcane
