This is a delightful young sheng! I don’t have enough experience with aging sheng to imagine how this tea might transform over the years; however, it is an incredibly light and easy drinker for how young it is, so it might not have the oomph to stand the test of time. I got notes of white peach, grape, yam and honey as well as a very crisp cane sugar flavor. The body is velveteen and thick, quickly coating your whole mouth <3 I get heady stone fruit aromatics, but the white peach is all that made it into the cup for me. I generally have a hard time getting into tea / alcohol that doesn’t have a bitter component to push back against sweetness, but all the sugar works for me here! All the characteristic Yiwu qualities are present in this tea. If I decide to beeng this, I will have a hard time not drinking it all young – which might not be such a bad thing ;~)
