A pretty good little cake. I brewed up about 6g in a 100ml gaiwan at 205-210f. I gave one rinse then started with a 5 second steep at 205f then decided to move up to 210f as the tea is pretty mellow. The wet leaf has a really nice smell of flowers and woodsy rain. There isn’t much sweetness to mention as the tea is mostly floral. There is a very slight hint of smoke but very light and is mostly on the nose. There are some nice purple leaves in this tea. All in all this is a pretty good young sheng that doesn’t have a lot of bitterness. Not that sweet or smoky but a very floral tea. Pretty aromatic nice tea.

205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 15 sec 6 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Tea is my offering to the muses. Fuel for song. I like Oolongs, Blacks, Shou and Sheng Pu’erh. Each were a “gateway drug” that led to the latter in that same order. I fear becoming an obsessed brew fiend though I think that I have possibly crossed that line after trying my first Pu’erh. I don’t pretend to be a knower of all things tea but hope to learn more everyday….so please feel free to share as it would be much appreciated.
