This is one of the mystery samples sent to me by Hster of the Tea Closet blog.
I decided on trying this one first because i felt like some younger sheng and this one seemed to be the youngest of the bunch just by its looks. The dry leaf a nice sweet mellow aroma. It seems to be maybe a early spring pick with a lot of buds. Looks like being stone compressed as it is quite loose.
The first few infusions are nice and heavy with a bitter sweet flavor and slight mushroom. As the brews continue it turns very sweet with almost a fruity aftertaste. A cane sugary sweetness which coats the entire mouth and lingers. I pull many fine brews but forget to count.
The infused leaf is mostly buds and small leaves.
It brings me a very relaxing chi and clears my mind. I enjoy it very much.
If I have to guess as to what it is, I will say its the 2006 wild elephant Hster posted a few weeks back, because of the high percent of buds and the sweetness she mentioned.
What's the verdict H am i at least close on this one?
