From Yunnan Sourcing

“Lasting Fragrance” (岁月留香) is a new product for 2010. Just 65 kilos of this tea was produced entirely from early spring 2008 wild arbor material. The mao cha was carefully stored in a dry condition in Yi Wu area and then stone-pressed just this year.

The tea itself has some yellow mature leaves (黄片) present which lends the tea a thick and somewhat sweet grassy taste. The tea is mostly bud and leaf sets and the stems are thick and stout. The brewed tea liquor has a golden-orange color and is very clear! The tea itself is pungently aromatic with a plumpness in the mouth and a protracted by subtle stimulating mouth-feel. The later infusions gradually surrender the real subtle beauty of the tea with a pleasant sweetness that reminds the drinker of rock sugar!

This is a tea with a little age, but plenty of fuel for future change and development. An affordable high quality Yi Wu tea to enjoy now and into the future.

This tea started out as a very complex mix of notes of spice, vegetal notes, camphor, and even medicinal notes. It did not in my opinion have a strong start. But by about the fifth steep it began to become a sweet and smooth raw puerh. By the twelfth steep it was very sweet and very smooth. Not quite the apricots of a new sheng but still sweet. It was overall very good. This would not be a good tea to steep western style however because the good notes took a while to emerge. This is definitely an example about how gongfu brewing can improve a tea dramatically.

I steeped this tea twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 9.1g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. I could have kept going with this tea but I decided I had had enough caffeine for today.
