This is a very mellow and approachable young sheng, one that I have been burning though because it really seems best drunk sooner rather than later. It’s a pleasant contrast from the 2019 autumn Lao Man’E cake I bought along with it, which is a promising but powerfully bitter tea that will need to do some hard time in storage to temper it. Individual flavor notes are hard to pin down, but the texture is silky and perfectly astringent and the hui gan is very pleasant.
My order came with a 20g sample of the 2018 version of this tea, which I have not yet tasted. I’m curious to see how that one handles aging further.

Flavors: Hay, Honey, Sweet, White Grapes

I’m a 27-year-old man who didn’t like tea until college, then downed a dozen teabags a day before switching to loose leaf. I’ve been drinking gongfu style every day since about 2015, and could hardly imagine life without it.
