another silly question...
It's official, I am bonkers lol.
i recently bought a few sheng cakes and 3 arrived this week.
I know it sounds rather daft, but all I seem to be doing is holding them, caressing them, and smell how lovely and aromic these cakes are. Love, love the anise.smell.
(why no one ever came up with the idea of making air refreshner from sheng I have no idea
I also received a sample from
yunnan chi tse beeng pingcha cha-CNNP 2003 (shou)
brewed in a gaiwan 110ml. Smelled like farmyard (no problem for me)
first few steeps deep red.
nothing fancy, and i am a bit disappointed.
It seems flat(?)/blant (English is not my mother tongue, sorry)
I expected fire works, but found it lacking of different taste sensations, like in sheng, and def. no plumps
, I only experienced a chalky aftertaste.
tried to steep short, long, VERY long (till almost black) but stays the same?
am I doing something wrong here?
