Thanks so much for this one a while back, JakeB! Am I the only person so write a tasting note for this one? Sheng is a bit tough for me to decipher sometimes other than saying I liked it or I didn’t (and usually that is probably just because I mess up the steeping of a sheng…) But I liked this one! I was surprised at the creamy texture it had. Otherwise, it is a sweet tasting sheng. Even the third steep at just boiled it still had a sweet, creamy flavor. So this sheng is a win. Basically if the sheng has a unique flavor that I don’t ruin quickly, it’s a delicious sheng to me. Usually only the first steep of a sheng tastes like the third steep of this one. It’s a shame there is no evidence of any other Steepsterers loving this pu-erh.
Steep #1 // 22 minutes after boiling // 35 second steep
Steep #2 // 20 minutes after boiling // 40 second steep
Steep #3 // just boiled // 35 second steep
