This tea seems to have “aged” a bit on the outside but still shows very green on the inside when breaking it apart. It brews a dark yellow almost orange color with an almost honey sweet aroma. It still maintains a lot of the bitterness associated with a young sheng(much more than the 8582 I tried earlier). this tea gives a good mouth-feel with a touch of dryness after drinking. It still has the tobacco punch with the camphor many people talk about numbing the sides of the tongue. It gives some hint of “metallic” and then turns to a touch of lemon. Not a bad sheng but not the best so far. We shall see how it continues to age. With the hit of camphor I think it holds promise.
