Still an excellent sheng in comparison to 2 years ago. It has retained many of its quality characteristics. Along with the liquor color that has changed into a bright and clear orange, the most noticeable transformation is of the sweetness to something fruitier like a cross between melon and dates. Very nice tea that gives me the speedy Jingmai energy that’s normally overbearing but it’s useful for this post-lunch session. It possesses a subtle, gripping depth of feeling that tempers the usual Jingmai jitters.

Eventual tea farmer. If you are a tea grower, want to grow your own plants or are simply curious, please follow me so we can chat.

I most enjoy loose-leaf, unflavored teas and tisanes. Always on the lookout for teas from countries and regions not commonly known for tea production or those that are not well represented in the western market. I seek these teas to gain an understanding, however vague, of how this plant performs in different climates.
