Brews a medium yellow, pretty light for it’s age. Moderately bitter, but quite astringent. Prominent woody oak note with hints of toasted grains, kale, and honey, as well as the alcohol-like taste of many young factory produced shengs. Good lingering flavor/aroma in the mouth, it’s lightly sweet and floral. As I steep on it gets more of a honeyed sweetness and I get I mild qi feeling in my forehead.

Somewhere I heard someone describe Wu Liang teas as “sunny” tasting, and this one fits that description. Kind of like walking through a lightly wooded field on a sunny summer day.

It’s a nice tea, but the strong astringency is somewhat off putting. Not one I need a cake of.

Nice oak aroma with very nice young muscadine contrasting astringency and sweetness. There seems to be plenty of immediate numbing to the back of the tounge and warmness to the lower jaw and upper chest. This one has good strength and and the liquor is full in the mouth.
