Decent Jin Xuan that’s more mellow on the floral notes. There’s a definite creamy texture…a certain butteriness to the texture. It brews a beautiul darker golden brew that goes down easily. It’s not my favorite because I think it lacks some character, but it’s not bad. Think more creamy, less floral for a formosa oolong.

One of my favorites. I steep this many times over (learned this from Chaikhana, presently Hidden Peak Teahouse), and the sweetness resonates beautifully. It is a complex puerh that has earthen notes. Hailing from 1997, this tea really is Grand! It’s a high quality puerh. One that you feel may have transcendental affects…like float out your window on a cloud…a tea that makes you glad to be alive. Ok, ok, it’s my favorite. I accept that now.
