I haven’t tried so many semi-aged sheng but this is so far my favourite.
No camphor, no medicinal flavour. Very complex bouquet like a jurassic forest.
Plums, wood, leather. Very fruity. Tobacco.
Turns into something purple. There’s a reason why this tea’s wrapper is purple. Medium thickness, cooling sensation. No smokiness.
Starts tightly packed, and then opens up to a more sour high pitched variety of flavours.
Chestnut honey, green pepper, cherry. Very elegant little bitterness and astringency. Aftertaste coats mouth and throat very evenly. Cooling sensation. I feel lightheaded, in a gentle way. Great dynamicity.
This tea is sold out. Gone forever. I never thought of spending 120£ for a tea, but if this was still available I would have considered that.
