I really didn’t like this all that much. There were notes of leather and tobacco in the beginning with this tea. They did slowly evolve into something nicer, not sure how to describe them. More and more I am coming to the conclusion that I don’t like aged sheng. It’s not that this was terrible or anything but it had too much leather and tobacco for me. I can tolerate that in an aged sheng if it’s got strong qi. On this one I got no qi at all so it didn’t have that going for it.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 9.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 miin.
Flavors: Leather, Tobacco
