This tea has a stable, warming character. Most often I gravitate toward puer of the smooth and mellow variety – this particular aged sheng is best described as smooth and heavy so I have learned to lighten up on the leaf. Seems to be made with high grade material. It is clean with good body and the sweetness is of the deep meaty variety. Nice mouthfeel with a little tongue-tickling and a light cooling sensation. Dark brown leaves with a few tips and twigs. Clear and bright orange liquor with a nutty sweet aroma. Good durability (I’ve steeped it 12 times). Age has served this tuo well.
