First time being the first reviewer on a tea, I think. Certainly one this old.
I take this with me to work and brew it grandpa style mostly, first steep is typical shou, second and third have a wonderful cola taste that I love. Like cola flavored candy – think Bottle Caps. Some warm spices, particularly cinnamon. Slightly slick/creamy mouthfeel. Really pleasant. I will have to gong fu this to see what else it’s got.
This was a blind buy for me before I was sure I liked shou. Didn’t like it much at first, stashed it away for a year and a half or so. Definitely a deal when I bought it, I’ll have to blind buy more.
