This pleasant silky soft and creamy Sheng was such a delicate pleasure in so many ways. The scent of the dried leaves indicates already a very sweet and floral bouquet which also developed a distinct corn aroma. But lets skip to the tasting part what immediately came into my mind was a certain complex structure with a sharing pattern to it – Honey – Propolis – Beeswax – and I loved it. Even the color had something quite honey-ish to it. But beside this getting to the point notes there was also another sweet aspect to it which really reminded me a lot of bourbon vanilla. The aftertaste a small delicious earthquake holds a very herbal menthol spiciness to it which conquers your whole tasting field from the tongue to the palatal deep down the throat. Remarkable. There isn’t such a thing as bitterness to it. After a couple of steeps this fine soup gets creamier and creamier but also his natural aspects of herbal and floral notes are stepping forward like a full blooming herbal garden richly covered with camomile, lamb’s lettuce , mushrooms, a hint of barley grass and soybean sprouts. A very durable one you can enjoy for many many steepings.
