Is almost an actual baked good masquerading as a sheng. I was so blown away by the massive popularity of this tea that I bought a cake blind at a significant markup at a party earlier this year. While there were tastings, it was not possible to get a good sense of the tea before the purchase because of all the giddy socializing. But “dessert tea” is a very accurate description for those familiar with wine and western style dairy heavy desserts. It is gentle enough to splurge on the grammage, offers up a wonderful energy, and features huigan that somehow really is reminiscent of castella. It may be an excellent choice for those trying to give up the crutches of dairy and sugar.

Flavors: Berries, Cake, Cream, Honey, Sugar

I’ll not adore every popular tea. Nor shall I always prepare it skillfully enough to do it justice and understand it before the sample is gone. Also, my search is for teas that are delicious now. I don’t know yet what will age well.
