This sheng continues its journey and by now produces a distinctly orange-coloured liqour. In its taste, there is still some grassiness, but fairly subdued. Today I noted a more nutty profile with mild fermentation tartness, pepperiness (like rocket) as well as notes of oregano, pear, walnuts and grass seeds. Its aftertaste is nicely warming, which is interesting to see in a young tea like this one.
