I waited patiently for about 2 weeks to try this YS sampling.. it was worth it.

Brewed Gung-Fu style in a gaiwan. This tea opened up very quickly, after only the 2nd infusion I had very strong mouthfeeling (further toward the throat than I am used to) as well as cha qi. Experiencing this tea through the first 10 infusions left a very heady feeling and was very stimulating.

Slight bitterness/astringency through the first 10 infusions. This tea stayed mostly consistent for the 20 steep session, but I highlight the lack of any astringency/biterness after about 10 steepings and more into vanilla-like tones.

Very exciting tea, can’t wait to enjoy this again.
