From the S&S TTB #2
Thanks to Rich for the generous addition to the TTB.
This tea is the reason I love sheng. The tea is rich and complex, with every one of at least 10 steeps showing a subtly different character.
The first steep (some would call this the rinse) was light but delicious with floral highlights. 2nd and 3rd were rich, complex, and powerful. Middle steeps (3,4,5) were woody and tannic, presumably suggesting an ability to age. After the 5th steep, the steeps became soft and round and sweet. The combination of the flavor and the cha qi leaves me sitting on the sofa with a smile on my lips.
