I have just started my “sheng samples trying week” with this tea and im kinda suprised. I have started safely – first brewings were rinse, flash, flash, 10 secs; i was expecting much more bitterness (not that im a huge lover of that taste, just considering it as young tea i would expect a punch in my throat) while i have found very enjoyable bitterness that was transforming into sweetness. Magic happens im telling you. Nice golden liquor, very fresh and enjoyable smell, like sunflowers and hay i used to lay on at summer, plus some freshness – hard to describe for me, like breath of fresh air. Totaly relaxing tea.
Update: after somewhere arround 6th infusion it has changed – bitterness apeared quite intense, few more infusions later the hay notes and sweetness apeared intensively again but overall taste and smell was fading out.

Flavors: Flowers, Hay, Summer
