Recent Tasting Notes


This one is raw and tasty, a bit of a Bulang or Wuliang taste. Sweet, a pinch of smoke most noticeable in the huigan, early spring material, so leaves are on the small side. Good cha-qi. The real deal with this brick is that 1) it was stored nicely, though it went through hell in shipping (I got it for the wrapper and it’s all shredded); and the craft in forming the brick. Most are packed like hockey pucks, literally requiring chiseling and scraping to get bits for consumption but handy if encountering bandits, wolves or wild boar on the way to grandma’s. This one is decidedly NOT like that. One of the best I’ve run across. Clear broth, nice body. A good drinker for the one who likes the tobaccoey tasting raws, where everything blends together just perfectly. Definitive thumbs up! The “60” is marking the 60th Anniversary of the PRC’s founding, so it’s a commemorative brick.

I had a sample of this from Red Lantern Tea ebay shop.
It is a lovely tea, very fruity, pears are prominent underlined with a slight citrus note. There’s a hint of smoke but way back in the background. There is no bitterness at all. Mouthfeel is pleasand and quite thick. Chaqi isn’t very powerful and the aftertaste doesn’t linger for long.
Its a very nice tea for casual drinking since longer brew times didn’t mess it up at all.
