Description
The first question one should have is: Why is this a picture of the backside?
Well, I’m hiding something… so naturally next: Why are you hiding the front?
So, you don’t have to buy this! I’m one crazy guy and this is a pure reflection of that.
This cake is a blend of two areas and the leaf has a roasted profile to it similar to that of aged Wuyi teas. There’s also a hint of chestnut in the background. This is a crazy sheng… and it’s being offered as less than it should be, however I wanted to provide this experience to those who follow me so they get a great deal.

If that’s not your thing, that’s fine! I’ve got plenty of great options in the shop with easier to access information. This is more of a thank you to the 11 people who pick a sample up. There will not be many other sheng out there that will be able to compare to the unique roasted oolong to middle aged sheng taste this puts out.

Each sample is for 25g

The scent and flavor and mouthfeel are all right. But I rather dislike what it does to my throat, which feels coated with something uncomfortable after only 2 steeps. Is it smoke? Is it lingering astringency? Either way, it isn’t a good feeling. I am not sick, and it isn’t from a reaction to something I ate just before.

This is the last of the sample. The first half was shared with dear company, so the conversation outshone the tea. The first solo tasting was low energy compared to others tasted week. This one lands in a similar fashion.

I can see how someone who smokes might not even notice the yucky throat feel and thus enjoy this far more than non-smokers will. Farewell, strange blend that smells good and feels like I am smoking a cigarette. Blecch. Merry merry.
