Been trying to work through the BLT sheng samples I have sitting around. Gave it a wash and a quick steep. Not too much flavor in the first steep. Soft and like. A bit of hay, in my opinion, with a slightly sweet aroma that clings to the cup.
A little bit more robust in the second steep, but still quite gentle. Florals start to emerge over the next few steeps, but nothing too distinct. I put the session on pause for a while due to getting absorbed by a few tasks. When I come back to it, I’m greeted with a sweeter, thicker brew than what I left behind. Still smooth.
I’ll be coming back to this one tomorrow!
So I have come back to this one (it’s the following morning) and it’s still very smooth and gentle in flavor, but it has a bit of a buttery taste behind it. Other than that, I’m still mainly getting florals, but nothing overwhelming. The sweetness seems to have died down, as well. Overall, I feel the same about it. I’s not particularly impactful in any way, to me. But it is good and easy to drink.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Smooth, Sweet
