Elegant, refined and powerful shou that I brewed quickly (~20s) for many steeps. Chinese medicine aroma, complex leather-dominant taste, wonderful smooth and lubricating mouthfeel, mouth-watering, bit of spicy tingle and camphor. Qi hits quickly with droopy orange gaze, warmth and relaxation before the chest punch of what feels like Bulang energy kicks in. And oh my is the color of the brew beautiful, like mahogany tinted with that orange-pink color often called coral.
This is an awesome shou, one of the best I’ve had. Thanks, Togo.
