I'm having fuhai 2005 7576 ripe tonight courtesy of yunnan sourcing. If shou was meant to imitate aged sheng I think this one does pretty damn well. Lightly fermented and aged in guangdong for 12 years, pretty tight compression. I really like this one.

Here's a picture of my cluttered tea station tonight


Here's an extra picture of the sweet sweet liquor

Not drinking right now, but starting night before last, and much of the day yesterday, 2010 Ban Pen Sheng from Essence of Tea. I was at a satellite office where there are fewer tea drinkers, so it's easier to share a fine tea on a smaller scale, with one person at once. I started this tea while working by myself in the evening, had 2-3 infusions, and suddenly realized it was time to go but the leaves had a lot of life left. So I left them overnight, and the next morning, shared day 2 infusions with two different people. One said it was her favorite of what I've shared with her so far (not sure of all the details but likely at least a gyokuro, shu pu, deep roast oolong, a light roast taiwanese mountain oolong). A mid afternoon, when it was really getting long in the leaf, someone else dropped by who had really been impressed by a freshly opened light roast TGY a couple of months back. I brewed a long infusion and then added a little fresh leaf to the pot, brewed a little more, combined the two infusions, and he was suitably impressed by his first experience of 'aged' tea.

Ban Pen Sheng, making tea friends and influencing people!

I look forward to another session here at home over the weekend.
