From Taiwan Master's Shop

I had completely forgotten about this tea. I get so used to trying my usual teas that sometimes I forget about the cakes I have stashed away. This one I picked up in Taiwan before I left 4 years ago and it only seems to have gotten better over time.

The flavours and aromas have their usual earthy feel to them, however, the spice in this one is a smooth clove with a smokey hui gan (lasting flavour on the back of the tongue). The energy is light, but it will definitely lead to that feeling of tea drunkenness when I take the time to sit and meditate over it. A fine red label tea, to be sure.

Drank this tea again this morning. 3g of leaf in a 100cc gong fu yi xing pot. I lost count of the number of steepings after about 9 I think. This tea has real drinking longevity. The colour was an intense burgundy. I’m a big fan. Spice, smoke, almonds are all flavours and aromas to describe this tea. And very potent energy.
