pulled this one from the tea box and thought i’d give it a shot this morning. I’ve been drinking it since i woke up and i’m not entirely convinced this is a sheng for me. Not surprising really, since i tend to prefer shou. I am happy for the taste though. It was a more subtle tea – hay and sweetness for the most part. nice but not amazing.

This is not a powerhouse tea, but one of subtlety and presence. It has a gentle fruitiness I associate with Yiwu, lovely large leaves, and is relaxing and contemplative. I am enjoying it.

Backlog from last night.

GCTTB4

Many thanks to Ubacat for adding this to the box! I had about half the sample last night in my gaiwan. I got about 10 steeps before I called it a night.

I used 80-85C water, rinsed it for 2-5 seconds, then did steeps of 10s/10s/15s/15s/20s/20s/25s/30s/35s/40s.

All throughout, the tea was a lovely clear yellow. The taste remained quite consistent from steep to steep – a bit haylike, a bit fruity, a bit mineral. However, I did notice the mineral note become more prominent on the last 2 or 3 steeps.

By the time I was done, the leaves had greatly expanded in the cup, but they hadn’t completely unfurled – they were still quite twisted up.

Unfortunately, I noticed that as I drank this tea, I developed a stomachache. For the last year and a half I’ve had unusual stomachaches that I can’t pinpoint the cause of; I thought it was one of those. However, boychik wrote recently in a note for a different sheng that really young sheng gives him stomachaches, so I think the tea is a possible culprit. His sheng was from spring 2015 — quite a bit newer than this maocha. But still, I think it’s possible.

Despite this, I’m glad I got to try a new vendor. Thanks for adding it to the box, Ubacat!

Christina, Did you drink this tea on an empty stomach?

I had it about 2 hours after dinner. Dinner itself was a filet of fish, some salad, and some roasted veggies.

Well, I have to say I’m better now. Maybe because instead of avoiding it I drink it more often. Kinda training myself. Another tip is to limit steeps. Like 5 a day. And continue the next day. I do snack before and after. This tea didn’t give any problems. It’s not as green.
