Many thanks to Glenn and Lamu for the chance to sample this amazing sheng!
After twice rinsing the 7 grams of leaf I was struck with an aroma like balsamic vinegar and sweet steamed spinach. In the full bodied and mouth-drying soup I tasted the peppery start mentioned by others, as well as sweet edamame, with a little bitterness that faded with each steep. The energy was very pleasing and noticeable. If only I had more!
