This is a very impressive tea. It’s aging very gracefully, with no wet storage characteristics at all. It starts out very sweet with a sharpness in the background reminding you it’s a sheng, but one with a flavor that has matured into something very balanced and refined. This has a honey-like sweetness with notes of ripe plum, pine, bourbon, roasted barley, and flowers. The tea liquid is champagne in color the leaves are a golden olive hue, mostly intact, and highly fragrant. It starts to reveal its aged nuances in later steeps.
This is one of those hidden gems.
