Possibly the most divine thing I’ve smelled in the last few months (mother even called it ambrosia), sniffing the dry leaves in the heated pot made me do a double take on the “raw Puerh” sticker. I don’t know to describe that pre-steep, post-ziplock aroma but it was good. Very good.

The aroma of the 15 second steep isn’t quite as fantastic, but it is pleasantly reminiscent of the grapefruit and cinnamon-like qualities of petunias (that’s what the ones in our garden smell like). The taste is floral, sour, somewhat vegetal, and slightly sweet. My brain is also stuck on cinnamon so I’m getting that too. NOTE later steeps didn’t come out as dynamic, which was disappointing after that amazing first impression.

Now I’m off to steep this to death for the rest of the day (and evening, and potentially tomorrow). It looks like me a Puerh are best friends now, thanks to OMGsrsly.

this one comes from omgsrsly As most know, sheng’s don’t usually do it for me but i continue to experiment and try more since i have had a couple that i adored. After playing with this one this morning, i don’t mind it, but it’s not one i’d search out for myself. a young sheng – no bitterness and very easy to drink…just lacking in the excitement department for me :) thanks for sharing omgsrsly!

I like this one specifically because it IS easy to drink. :) You’re welcome!

I had this tea this morning while I was putting my lunch together. Super mild, reminiscent of pea sprouts, not bitter at all even with a 30 second steep.

I’ll need to steep it more and try it again. It’s quite unlike the sharp almost bitter flavours I would expect with a young sheng. Really interesting.

I’m having more steeps and I quite like this. It’s really gentle.
