Recent Tasting Notes

Broke this out during our “Fritz” on the site. Still trying to keep up.
Got 10 grams off the cake for the Yixing. Gave a 10 second wash and went with it. Semi-dark brew as I think this is a lighter fermented shou. No off flavor in this as I am finding about 6 years and the shous are coming in like the shengs do. It had a nice raisin and semi-sweet flavor and just the slightest touch of bitter/astringency.
I only did 2 brews with this over 2 days but it has been pretty nice and you get a little earthy and woody on the second day.
Enjoyable on a cool rainy night.

Flavors: Bitter, Raisins, Sweet, Wood

Sounds like a really good one, mrmo! I love the ones with a little sweetness!

I think the light fermentation in Dayi cakes are nice. I have a couple of others like this kind of a mix of shou and aged sheng.

I recently heard about both things. I did not know that there were different levels of shou fermentation. I think I fall solidly on the side which prefers a lighter fermentation. And someone was telling me about pu’erh that is a mix of sheng and shou. So that’s also on my list of things to try. :)

wow, Dragon Tea House has so much stuff! I don’t see this tea on their site. Maybe they sold out of it?
