Recent Tasting Notes
Haven’t had any new teas to review so I thought I’d revisit this one. Seems like the edge of the tea has diminished a bit compared to the last time I drank it, signs that it potentially is starting to age, but overall still a nice tea. Great leaves with decent amount of buds, beautiful aroma both in the dry and wet leaf, vibrant and clear colour of liquor, great flavour full of floral and herbal notes, decent texture with a slight bite, decent character with minor steep variability, decent finish & aftertaste albeit less than last time, cha-qi is somewhat there and semi-potent and steep longevity has reduced to maybe 8 steeps. Overall still good.

Great young sheng! I got this tea from my recent KTM order, and it really is tasty and more. Beautiful leaves with a great proportion of buds, complex aroma both in the dry and wet leaf albeit could use a bit more potency. Liquor is vibrant and clear. Flavour is pretty nice and decent, great florality blend with a nice tinge of bitterness and minerality + fruitiness. Texture is super oily, nice smooth tea in the mouth. Character for this tea is pretty exceptional, great steep variability, keeping the session interesting through steeps through the change in flavour profiles from a more bitter upfront profile to a strong body profile to a lingering sweet profile.
Finish & aftertaste is pretty great too, lovely lovely aftertaste of herbaceousness and florality that permeates in the mouth, slight oily + astringent finish to it as well. Cha-qi is the biggest criticism of this tea. Definitely a slight buzzy cha-qi present but not enough to be decent or exceptional for that matter and it wouldn’t stand out compared to other shengs. Steep longevity lastly is pretty decent with the tea lasting up to steep 12+.
This tea does well in many parts but if it had a slightly better cha-qi and had an extremely outstanding quality to it, it could be very well be a high 80s tea for me.
