I know, I know – it has been a great while since I’ve been able to post on here, however all has been good and life continues to speed up as the family grows older. I have NOT stopped drinking tea. In fact, there is not a day that I can remember that there hasn’t been at least a few cups that find their way to my lips. Most days, it is several pots of tea that comfort and keep me while on the go.
Anyway, here is a little concerning the tea:
This one still holds its character of a young sheng, however there is already a certain smoky, medium soupiness to the brew. The bitterness is mild considering the production date and leave a satisfying astringency to top of the tongue. I’m certainly looking forward to tasting this one a couple more times over the next week or two, as well as setting some back for a taste in a couple years. This one, I believe, can grow in it’s complexity as it ages.
