Drinking this tea I couldn’t help but exclaim “Tastes like chicken!” Not as in it actually tastes like chicken, but as in it’s an excellent example of what a “very ok” sheng tastes like. It’s fairly bitter with a flavor thats slightly vegetal and green like parsley. Theres some honeyed sweetness, and the alcohol/gasoline scent that you get from a lot of fresh factory sheng. Theres a touch of apricot and tobacco, and just a hint of smoke. Brewing reveals chopped and shredded leaves. It’s a very ok tea.

Flavors: Grass, Honey, Parsley

205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 15 sec 6 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

Tea addict since around 2011.

My favorites are pu’erhs, blacks/reds, and roasted oolongs, but I have a growing interest in good whites, and sometimes enjoy greens.

Currently trying to get an education, working a part time job, expand my ceramics/pottery skills, and trying to make the best of existential crisis.

Other than tea I love the outdoors, ceramics, guitar, and diy/building things.

I started a tea blog in February 2018, though admittedly I haven’t updated it much lately.

When I give a tea a numerical rating it’s simply meant to reflect a balance of how well I enjoyed the tea and how it compares to others of the same style. I don’t follow any universal rating criteria, and my ratings are mainly meant for my own use, to remember what I though of a tea and if I want to repurchase.
