I am really glad that Steepster seems to have the cupboard feature all sorted out, so I could easily sort on the teas I just added… yay!

So this is an interesting tea… normally Xiaguans are smoky and fairly potent. But I do know that Yiwu shengs tend to be more on the mild side, and so is the case with this one. I don’t detect any smoke at all in this. The flavor is very woody with apricot notes. After sipping, you are hit pretty hard with a lemony bitterness that gradually transforms into a sweeter, mellow more honey like flavor. This is a mildly energizing brew that gives a nice, glowing feeling….

I found that when I lowered the water temp. from about 200 F to 190 F, most of the bitterness is gone.

I tend to like smoky shengs myself, but this is a nice change of pace for when I want something on the lighter side. Will be interesting to see how this ages if I don’t drink it all before it ages. :)
