This is a gentleman’s sheng. It has a rugged pungency and robust bitter, nutty, and tobacco-like flavors. Mid steeps are more herbal and bittersweet. It’s a very comfortable tea. I imagine myself sipping on this on a cold evening in front of a fireplace. It’s highly infuseable and has consistent energy that only fades at after the 13th or so steep. The leaves are quite large and thick. Very distinctive!
