I'm surprised that you didn't mention the durability thing. It lasted longer than 4-6 interesting brews?
I only brewed it about 10 times, I didn’t count actually, too many shengs yesterday... I'll brew it again and more than i did to get your point… If think that when it became blander the salivation effect was stronger and there was more bitterness too, it probably has more to give in the future, maybe that's what you meant
About the aged taste I have exaggerated a little bit: there is some caramelized apple flavor at the beginning, but it’s not the kind of aged taste that I associate with umami, and i can be wrong on that… the tea is ok, but it’s not what I’m looking for, and less at this price...By the way, I take this rare opportunity to tell you I’ve only tried one pasha until now and it tasted plaster and a sort of very bland watered hot chocolate, like a medicine i had when I was a child: smecta… and soap too… just to say i just can't talk about pasha…
