I’m finding that I can tolerate these older shengs, but this is the first one that I actually enjoy.
I would have to agree with Liquid Proust on this tea in that it is quite smoky and smooth. There is a bit of astringency on the back of the palate, but just a tiny bit. There’s just a hint of woodsiness, like cedar?
Leaves my palate all tingly after I swallow!!
