I received a healthy chunk of this as a sample from Yunnan Sourcing. It is very drinkable but does not blow me away. There is a slightly metallic taste to the tea that I cannot quite place. It is not unpleasant, just different. It also does not seem to have much longevity at the moment. I am brewing it in a 170ml Yixing pot with 8g of tea but the real flavour seems to go quite quickly. I am very tempted to get some of this for storage and see how it ages.

I am a qualified peripatetic berserkerologist peddling berserkjaknowledge wherever I can. I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
