For aging

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

This is a bland of two teas from two villages in Menghai area. Material is coming from an old tea trees 60-120 year old. The cake is well processed.

Dry tea smells heavily fresh. Odour of wet leaves is deeply flower-sweet.

Infusion is bold, herbal, strong, bitter. Nothing uneasy in the taste, but also nothing distinctive. But the energy, on the other side, is quite distinctive and warming-up. This strong energy will make you sweat.

I can spot a little mushroom aftertaste in later infusions. Very long aftertaste.

I have over-steeped the 8th brew and it is still very bitter. Stamina is good, though.

This tea, in my opinion, is not suitable to drink now. You can find far more pleasant young shengs in 2015 ChawangPu Collection (Bada, Mengsong, Hekai). The taste of this tea is not distinctive, but judging by energy it quite interesting. Really outstanding chaqi. It will be though more suitable for long term aging. The price is favourable $18 for 200g cake (2015).

Quotes

„kou gan; 口感 - Literally mouth-feeling. Dictionary definitions vary between mouth-feel referring strictly to textural character - i.e. 质地/zhi di, others to a broader definition of flavour. In tea drinking it is largely referring to the former, but cannot be easily separated from other gustatory and olfactory sensations.“
