Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox – Round #5 – Tea #45
Whoa, how did I not know this was sheng rather than shu? The leaves looked like shu to me. I guess I haven’t had shu in a while. I don’t think I ruined it at all, because I could tell by the rinse color it was sheng. The flavor is just sheng to me, sadly. A decent sheng, but I never feel like I appreciate them as much as I should.
Steep #1 // rinse // 17 minutes after boiling // 45 second steep
Steep #2 // 15 minutes after boiling // 60 minute steep
