92

I am drinking this after the 2007. In the Yixing with generous leaf and no rinse. The first steep was light. Maybe I should of rinsed it. Steep 2 is holding its own. Darker. Stronger. Earthier. I do not think I will be able to go through this one for multiple steepings. I know when to say when. Or do I? For the 3rd steep the nuggets seem to be coming apart now. I am still getting the numbness and this mouth coating sensation. It is a very good tea. I probably should have waited another day to try it. It is hard to properly taste it right after the 2007. Besides, I can take no more….

Fair enough….I like your honesty.

This one is VERY good. I think that a 92 is a pretty fair and accurate rating nonetheless.

I will be tasting again. I am sure I will do things differently that may improve it.

Nathaniel, you work for Verdant, right? ;-)

I do, David and I worked together in a Teahouse for a year before we both left. He went on to start Verdant Tea, and I work in a church ministry now but do a few things with Verdant. David is the main man to talk to though.
