Dragon and Horse – 2nd batch

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

This tea is a blend of Lancang and Menghai material. Seller has explained that Menghai material comes from Bulang area. Tea was stored in dry Kunming (4 years) and also in more humid Guangzhou (5 years), where this tea matured well.

After flashing leaves, the empty cup smells pleasantly sweet. Rinsed leaves aroma recalls dates, fruits and it’s also astringent. Colour of the brew is brown.

15s – the first sip – taste is sweetish with a small aged tones at the end. Further sips highlight mature tastes. Sweetness is coming back to mouth via your nose. No bitterness at all. Nothing disturbing. It’s interesting as there was quite bitterness in this tea year ago.

12s – the second cup – more mature taste, a lot of sweetness, still no bitterness. Here comes astringency.

You can spot camphor flavours in the tea pot.

18s – the third cup – astringency is growing and you can observe cooling effect on your tang. There is no bitterness, just more mature taste.

25s – the forth cup – 35s - the fifth – it is not a bad tee at all, what an improvement since last year – 6, 7 & 8 - the end.

Unpleasant bitterness present in the tea year ago is now gone. It’s good medium aged sheng. Price was $32 one year ago (2014), now it’s $54 for 400g (2015).
