2010 Hai Lang Hao "Lasting Fragrance" Yi Wu Wild Arbor
“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.
