I bought this cake as just an experiment to see how similar it was to other 75xx recipes I’ve had and at $10 for the 5 YO beng I thought I’ve bought crappy tea before. I’ve now brewed this tea two or three times and I have to say it is indeed excellent. Todays brewing struck me as being creamy… I did a brief rinse infusion and drank the second infusion. I was amazed when I perceived a thick and creamy with a distinct flavor and texture of sweetened whipped cream in the first infusion. This continued through the second as well though the color of the liquor was a much deeper darker red. I would not call this a complex tea but I would call it a very good to excellent tea and just as enjoyable as the more traditional (and pricier) Da Yi 75xx offerings.

I’ve been drinking tea for about10 years now. I started out with a couple of orders from Harney and Son and some local vendors and living in Utah good local tea vendors are very hard to come by… makes me think we might need another one, maybe mine?
