Tha magic of this Shu begins as soon as you unwrap it: the cake is pressed into a thin waffle shape that looks a lot like a chocolate bar. Breaks off easily. The dry leaf aroma is pretty simple, but when you begin the steeping process it opens up to reveal a fine aroma of plum, cranberry jam and woody notes. The flavour includes leather and wood with a dominant mushroom note throughout the composition. Viscous, brews into a thick liquor. This Shu can handle many steep without losing the thickness and darkness of the brew. Goes down smooth, gently elevates.
Best brewed in a clay teapot, recommended brewing temperature : 90-95°C
