Here’s another great Jinggu sheng that YS offers, Long Tang Gu Shu. It is extremely smooth and clean tasting with a unique profile that’s hard to describe.

The dry leaf aroma is sweet and floral, with notes of bell pepper and oregano, while wet leaves smell nutty and vegetal with scents like sugarcane, pine, persimmon, and ficus.

The taste is strong and balanced with great clarity, moderate to high bitterness, and medium astringency. It is very vegetal with a floral sweetness not unlike honey. Particular flavours are quite elusive, but some I picked up include vanilla, green bell pepper, star anise, thyme, and fish meat. Aftertaste is then savoury, crisp, and tangy with a lasting bitterness.

I like the mouthfeel a lot, it is creamy, thick, and numbing. As I mentioned already, the liquor is very smooth. I get a nice calming sensation from the tea, but the cha qi doesn’t seem to be overly strong here.
