I started this sample pretty late in the evening. I’ve been drinking down some samples today; however, this session was the longest from the few sessions.

This tea has a darker color than most shengs I’ve had. Not a lot of bitterness. I tasted earthy-mint (with a touch of honey toward the first few steeps) notes throughout the session. I’m not aware of the total number of steeps, but this tea didn’t give even after I stopped after 3 hours….I might be willing to get a whole cake later down the road.

Drinking down a lot of my teas in 2020. I may not observe these sessions as much as I’d like, but I’ll note them, when the mood strikes.
