Thanks for the sample Dennis!

This is a bit of an odd bird to me. A lot more vegetal than other young shengs I’ve experienced. Light spiciness/herbaciousnes in early steeps. Extremely mild bitterness, and a tiny bit of sweetness but not much. Really interesting and different!

Glad I got to try it :)

Back logging from memory

Started out mildly citric fruity spectrum which bled into lemongrass due to lemon flavor being more pronounced followed by a slightly herby tail which reminded me of dried lemongrass. Unlike other fresh sheng I have had by verdant I would say this is an attempt at storage puer where as in the past it seemed they were friendly/light “drink now” profile whether intentional or not. There was a bitterness which I like but unfortunately it was not followed by a sweetness (as per bulangs I enjoy) which would have sealed the deal for me to order a larger chunk but we shall see in a year or so. It slightly reminded of w2t bulang mini cake I really adore but this tea was more complex but it was lacking the body and sweetness that complete the experience personally.

I will have to rebrew in the near future due to this being the first sheng by verdant that has held my interest and have potentional to be flavorful with flash steeping or sub boiling water.
