I wish someone would post a new listing for the Autumn Laoshan Black. I commented on this yesterday while my keen sense of taste was dulled. Today I brewed this up in the Yixing with generous leaf. I knew when the boiling water hit the leaves I was feeling better. The aroma that we loved is back. I am getting a sweetness again with flavors of a lighter cocoa and the buckwheat honey. The second infusion was steeped for maybe 8 to 10 minutes. It’s alive. I am seeing dimensions with this that I did not see with the Spring picking. I am getting that copper sensation that I got with the Big Red Robe. My body is warm and glowing from this second cup. Am I feeling 100 percent? No. Did this tea make me feel better? YES.

Excellent! I am relieved to hear that this tea is performing for you. It is always a risk bringing in something new, but I trusted the farmers and told them to ship me the whole crop after it was harvested and not wait for samples to approve.

Thank you for sharing this comment and confirming my suspicions that this harvest may indeed be more complex than its predecessor. I am also glad that it may have had a small role in pushing you towards health from being sick.

It is deep honor to have loyal customers, and I don’t take it lightly. Thank you. I will continue to work my hardest in finding thrilling new teas to try and maintaining or raising my standards of quality.
Best Wishes,
David
