Chaiman Meow picked this one 2 times in a row and the chairman knows best. I broke off 10 grams and separated what I broke off into mainly full leaves as this is compressed lightly. I used the Gaiwan also per the chairmans pick on the brewing vessel. I gave a good 5 second rinse to wake everything up. The wet leaf had a touch of ’mustiness" that most teas this age exhibit.
It gives bit of the floral and citrus along with sweetness and an almost caramel touch to it. It also gives the tongue tingle that most older quality teas give. Really nice, not too harsh astringent or bitter considering its age and origin. A really nice one done here. If this is “middle of the road” I think it does a good job.

Flavors: Caramel, Citrus, Floral, Sweet

Preparation
10 g 10 OZ / 295 ML

mrmopar – you have a Chairman Meow too? I think Sarsonator’s cat is also named that – and I LOVE that name for a kittie

mrmopar Sarsonator pegged my kitty as Chairman Meow. So I stole it from here.
Sarsonator

Oh my. I don’t know if the world is ready for two Chairman Meows! What if they decide the Earth isn’t big enough for the both of them!?! It could be war, people!!!! LOL

It’s funny that your Chairman picked this one, mrmopar. I’ve been thinking about placing an order with White2 and I wanted to try this! I guess if the Chairman has spoken, I really can’t refuse. All hail the kitty overlord! :)

I love the Kitty Scratch Method.

MzPriss

mrm – did you know that Sarsy has become a raging sheng-head?

Sarsonator

Kitty tea randomizer!!! LOL. What’s not to love? :p

It’s true, I have. I’m currently staring at the Yunnan Sourcing site trying not to click “place order”

MzPriss

I ordered a buttload of samples from them and I had to trim my list way back because it was outrageous

Sarsonator

I wish the shipping wasn’t so high. But they don’t have everything I want on the us site.

MzPriss

Yeah the China site is the one for me too. But my stuff came really quick and I only paid $2 more. And I got a purple yixing. Happy.

Sarsonator

Blah. Shipping is half the cost on the us site. Maybe I’ll just buy less.

Cwyn

Plus the package shows up faster, he uses Priority in the US. I always check there first for something before the China site. Trying not to hit Place order for 4 orders of the Wild Purple Dehong black tea.

you can “play” with shipping. the more you order the shipping kinda stops. so usually i say to myself $20 is max for the ship. and I keep adding to the cart. i think that China site is more economical overall. and better selection. but i try to wait for sales. the discount sometimes equal to free ship. and dont forget you earn loyalty vouchers

Roughage

I do the same, boychik. I keep adding until the shipping tips over my limit and then I remove enough to bring it back down. Then I will try adding samples up to the maximum weight to get best value for money from the shipping. I’m based in the UK, so I don’t worry too much about comparing China with the US site.

Sarsonator

I just made this and I adore it. Chairman Meow absolutely does know best!
