Medium fermentation, clearing up after a few steeps. Strong flavor and depth in steeps 2-6, growing lighter in color at steep 7 with the flavor changing to a sweet, honey/wood flavor. Very nice shou at this point.

Pleasant Daily drinker

Typically wood-centric shu pu with a little hint of complexity. I smelled a hint of raspberry from the gaiwan and tasted a very slight rosey sweetness in the background, otherwise a typical light-medium fermentation that will most likely improve with age.
