This was a fairly nice sheng. There was some bitterness buy not much. There was a little tobacco in the first infusion but none in the second. It seems to have lost the taste of apricots but still had some sweetness to it. Overall this was good. Didn’t get much qi off of it, maybe a little. There was a certain amount of astringency to this tea.
I steeped this ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.8 g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.
