I brewed this last night (10g/200 ml) after work. I’ve not been able to sleep anymore, so I have started working out and drinking a variety of sheng (which helps me relax) to slow my mind down.
At first, it was a bit bitter, but from my experiences with Naka, that’s how it goes with most of them…After a few steeps in, the bitterness vanished and there was a nice smooth ‘sheng’ (leathery) note….However, I hadn’t realized that the tea was taking hold of me, and allowing my mind/body soar in the state of relaxation/sleepiness. Upon drinking more and stopping momentarily to allow the kettle to boil back to the temperature needed, I was asleep.
So, in conclusion….this is pretty good stuff.
