I received a small coin of this in the W2T club. It’s a strong young tea. I kept getting fruity notes when smelling the lid. I had cut up a honey dew melon earlier in the day and the fruit smell reminded me of that melon. Of course, that fruit note is light, and the dominate note of the wet leaves is young green sheng. There is some nice sugary sweetness that returns, but to get there, you will go through bittervillle. It’s rather intensely bitter even with very short steeps. I think this one has good aging potential. It is thick in the mouth, good lasting sweet aftertaste. Astringency is very low. As for caffeine or qi, it’s strong. I felt my face get heavy, I had to squint my eyes a few times to shake it off, and developed a sweat later into the session. Toward the end of the session, the bitterness did settle down.
