Driking it today. I was thinking that ill start it with “omg crazy shit, every sheng is different” sentence, but then i have realized its so obvious that it would be very dumb :P
Dry leaves smels good, very good and – when i have smelled them at the morning shortly after waking up i got hungry immediately. Hungry for eating but also for drinking that smell. The first comparison that came to my mind was fresh cut sunrays, it got even stronger when i have firstly sniffed wet leaves – had to hold the table otherwise i would faint out of awe. Usual gongfu brewing, and i can explore different layers of this tea – from basic one (pungent – tho not that hard) which is similar to the teas i tried so far, then second one which is mild and sweet, to next one that brough “something like mix of the coffie with black tea” effect and wanted me to go deeper till the refreshing waterfall. I will update later when im done with infussions, so far im on very interesting tour :)
Update: some infusions later strong punch in the face with bitterness but still followed by sweetness and some acerb notes.
Update: end of the day – strong bitterness coming out, just strong enough to call it a night :)
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Hot Hay, Summer
