Shou lover transitioning back to Sheng

by mosshorn » Sep 20th 16 5:11 pm

Hey all! Wow, it's been a hot minute since I've been here :mrgreen:

Anywho, as of late I've been on a huge shou kick, loving the depth and mouthfeel a good one produces. I happened to buy a cake of young sheng with my last order though (YS 2014 Spring "Dehong Ye Sheng") and really enjoyed it! I think what drove me from sheng in the past was I didn't have much of a budget to buy anything other than the freshest, most overly energetic sheng available.

So I ask, what sheng should I try next? Bonus points if it comes from YS, since I have to restock on shou as well :wink:

Is there much difference between the '14 autumn, '15 spring, and '16 spring cakes? I liked the '16 spring sample.

I haven't tried the Autumn version. Only the 2 Spring ones and they are nice.
Cavalier fan as well I see. Hope they can beat the Hokies that are just up the road from me this year.

One man's nectar can be another man's dreck and vice versa. I'd try as many samples as possible and move on from there.
