Quick rinse and the smell is very bright grassy with camphor. Mellow liquid, sweetness already. Nice quiet first steep, still pretty compact since I didn’t break up the chunk. 2nd steep has mild bitterness, nice astringency, and a pretty nice texture. Tasting rice and dried grass. 3rd has growing bitterness but still low astringency. Increasing grassiness, still tastes more like dried grass than bright fresh grass. Some mineral. VERY nice body, one of the more interesting shengs I’ve had, texturally. 3th steep is very creamy and thick and sweet. Less grassy now, more rooty and mushroomy. 4-6th still good. 7th and 8th getting sweeter and slightly more boring but still has awesome body and full flavor, just flatter.
Real good. Awesome price. Will cop a cake for sure.
