This tea was included with the June Global Tea Hut and is a very good tea. It was quite probably the smoothest semi aged sheng I have tried. It had what I would describe as a sweet note throughout all twelve steeps I gave it. Not the apricots of a young sheng mind you but more of a woodsy note, maybe mushrooms or something like that. The tea liquid was a little thin from age but it’s color was a dark reddish color. I wish this one was available for sale. There were no wet storage notes, no tobacco or leather notes developed from age either. If this had a little more body to it I would give it a 100%. It was very, very good. I didn’t feel much qi but maybe a little.

I steeped this tea twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 7.2g 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, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.

Flavors: Mushrooms, Smooth, Sweet

Boiling 7 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
