Used 4.20 grams of leaf first time with this one.
(Did two quick rinses)
Bright, clean, & slightly smokey.
Infuses to a nice pale orange hue.
Smells fantastic brewed.
My little studio is overpowered with sheng aroma.
Very smooth tea no astringent properties for the first couple steeps!
Slightly sweet and greatly pleasant to sip.
Almost a citrus hint with a juicy “easy” drinking quality.
Calm but mentally focused chaqi.
I feel the heightened awareness starting to creep up.
Ima play with this one a few more times before final judgement but mandala tea has brought the good stuff yet again. ;-)
Flavors: Citrus, Cut grass, Eucalyptus, Honey, Smoked, Wet Earth, Wet Wood
