From Kunming Chuncheng Tea Factory

This is a small tuocha made of raw materials from Lincang area. The infused liquor is very aromatic and has a pretty and clear golden color. Good sweetness and a light pungency go nicely hand in hand.

Vintage 2006

Notes on Jan.22nd, 2012. After being stored in Indianapolis for 5 years, something has happened to it. The aging element does kick in as witnessed by the color of the brewed soup – it becomes light reddish, oily with certain thinkness. The original floral scent is disappearing, in its place, there is vegetal aroma, a very surprising/interesting result. If I was not told I was brewing this tuocha (I had not touched it for a few years), I would think it’s a Xiaguan tea.
‘Yinhao’ in Chinese means Silver Buds in English.
