Here’s a sheng I picked up with my latest Dragon Tea House order.

When I first sipped it, I thought it was a very light tea without a lot of bitterness but I was wrong! The bitterness definitely sneaks up on you so that by the time you’re finished with one cup it’s really strong. Very sour, makes your mouth pucker!

It doesn’t have many sweet, honey like notes to counteract the bitterness. I would say it has some lighter haylike flavors in the first couple of steeps. I am not detecting any smoke in this tea.

3/4 steeps – the tea is still so strong that I had to add some hot water to dilute it. When it’s diluted it’s a lot less strong and I am detecting some sweeter notes coming forth. This is a very potent tea however. Always the risk with young shengs.

5/6 steeps – I am getting the same result. The tea needs to be diluted to make it drinkable. Maybe by around 20 steeps this will start to mellow out more. It’s definitely a potent tea… needs to be aged for about 10 years probably. Not sure how to rate this one for now.

i can take bitter tea as long as sweet aftertaste is following. i also like sheng that is “juicy”, producing more saliva . Put it away. its too young to judge

yep, it’s only a sample so I can put it in my tea storage warehouse, aka the closet ;)

2 years from now and it will be different. I have one stored we could do pics on Instagram to compare.

Wow that sounds like a young one for sure. How much did you buy?

TeaBrat

I just got a sample, 50g. It was super energizing too, almost to the point of giving me an anxiety attack!

Indigobloom

Yikes. Maybe you can blend it with a different one
