Powerful beginning astringency that overwhelms, followed by great sweetness and hui gan. Full bodied and complex. Lovely fragrance. I get the feeling that this would be great for aging. Energy is not physical nor mental, but rather emotional— feeling uplifted.

$250 for the whole cake eh? Add it to my list of sheng to consider buying and aging after my first or second year of newbie tea exploration.

Hello! My name is Mateusz, or Mat for short. Started brewing gong fu style in January 2021. This is mostly for logging purposes; don’t expect fancy reviews as I’m not great at picking up every note and hint and I’m not too picky anyway.

Happy to exchange tea samples! I haven’t been great at updating my cupboard but feel free to ask about the teas that I log on here.
