Can’t help myself, but it’s great and highly uncommon.
I prepared this tea gongfu, close to 5 grams / 125 ml; which is quite watery, but I didn’t wanted to use all the remaining amount I had. The rest (I guess around 3 grams) I will brew western.
I did several steeps, wasn’t counting them at all, just adding a few (usually 5) seconds. I got a several great steeps, though the taste of sawdust is a bit weird, but liked by me. Pine. Forest floors. Grassy. Smooth. Quite thick as well.
Several steeps were a bit vegetal. Not troublesome at all though! Unusual flavour profile for sheng and I liked it; though it is a bit far from “typical” cup of sheng. I will miss it one day. mrmopar I see you still own it. I wonder what would you think about it; as it’s 17 years old! And you tried it 6 years ago.
