This certainly is an unusual green tea! If someone had made this tea for me without me seeing the package, I would say it was a sheng. Even the dry leaves look like sheng. Very dark and grey.
Brewed up it’s a bit smokey & earthy. There’s a bit of nutty in the notes along with black pepper that hits the tongue on the finish.
There’s only one tsp left of this so I’m putting it back in the box to let someone else try it out. Definitely an unusual tea!
This tea is all sheng to me.
