Well I am finally getting to try the younger sister, brother or cousin of my beloved ‘98. After drinking a weaker ’98 yesterday I was paranoid. I brewed this one up with generous leaf in the Yixing and with no rinse. I let it steep for maybe 3 minutes. The result is a glorious nectar of the Gods. I am definitely getting the sparkle. When I was pouring it out of the Yixing I loved the color contrast with the brown of the teapot. It was a beautiful reddish brown color. I don’t know yet about the sensory overload that the ‘98 provides, even when brewed weak like yesterday. My mind is opening to say the least. This is something that coffee cannot provide. Yes it’s an eye opener but what about the third eye? These Xingyangs stimulate the brain and the body and everything in between. I am only on my first cup. I am not myself until the first sip of tea. Gee David, it looks like I need a tin of this too….
