Smallish leaves in this cake with mixed brown coloring. Very clear light yellow tea soup after two quick rinses. The tea has a little bitterness followed quickly by a gentle sweetness; offers a pleasant mouthfeel which seems to linger; grabs you quickly and gives you a modest kick. I experienced a little dryness in the mouth and throat and a bit of warmth moving through my extremeties.
The first two steepings present flavors of butter, pine, and mushroom blended together – interesting and enjoyable profile here. The next few infusions become more like a sweet tobacco with those pine and mushroom accents remaining. By the sixth steeping, the sip produces a woody base with hints of flavor – pine, spice, a rather mild fruit – and continues to be a pleasant cup of tea. Does not seem nearly as full or powerful as it did in the beginning of the tea session. I believe this Bulang is a more gentle tea than most from this area but I must say that I rather enjoy it.

How do you feel about it overall? I’ve had a few ChangTai Lately and even though they were pleasant, I didn’t come out a fan. I’ve had this one, the Lao Ban Zhang and a Six Start. They seemed fairly similar with the Six Star one being the most different in that it lacked the stronger tobacco/medicinal notes (mushroom?) and perhaps was more fruity. I’ve yet to find something I fall for from ChangTai.

The final words of my tasting note are “I rather enjoy it” and I think that is my first overall impression. Certainly not my favorite sheng but seems good for my palate. I’m likely to re steep these same leaves again this afternoon. I’ve noticed Hobbes tasting notes so I decided to begin exploring them. Don’t have the LBZ and I’m not familiar with the Six Star. I did quite enjoy this one: 2005 Changtai Chenhongchan Yiwu
