This is a fairly nice tasting semi aged sheng. It had not developed the notes of leather and tobacco although there was a very, very faint trace of that. It had what I would have to call a sweet note but I am not sure how to characterize it. Not sweet in the sense of sugar mind you. Overall I liked this tea more than a lot of other ten year old sheng I have tried.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 150ml gaiwan with 9.2g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 minute. I could have gotten a few more steeps out of this but ten steeps was enough for me.
