This is a very nice, simple, high quality young sheng. It brews up thick, and the leaf quality is very nice. The flavor is not too complex – just a nice simple buttery fruity young sheng. There is very little bitterness until later steepings, and even then, it is muted. It is a great tea, and very cheap for this quality – only $24 for a 200g cake.

I ordered chawangshop’s Wu Yi lineup, and I must say all of them are at least very good. This one is top notch. It is the smoothest Wu Yi oolong I’ve had. It’s a deep baked handmade oolong, done exceedingly well. The roast is deep but not upfront in the flavor profile. It is spicy and zesty, with hints of fruit. The broth is silky. Great stuff. Chawangshop is an underrated gem. Don’t be put off by what appears to be high shipping costs, once you place your order and they send you an invoice, the shipping is usually much less than it first appears.
