Mmm, tasty. I have been enjoying a pot of this all day. 8g of tea in my 170ml duan ni pot and short steeps. It is slightly smoky and smooth with just a touch of prickly astringency that stays on the tongue for ages afterwards. It has a lovely aftertaste and left me feeling all relaxed and mellow. I doubt I shall have the patience to age this one. Might be time to buy several more bricks of it, just in case! :)
2006 Guoyan * Gui Fei Raw Pu-erh tea brick
This tea brick is pays homage to the “Gui Fei” (see wikipedia Yang Gui Fei)the title of the Emperor’s Highest-Ranking concubine. Perhaps this tea was created to give the drinker a feeling of elegance and beauty? Whatever the rationale behind its illustrious title this tea is excellent! It is composed purely of first flush Spring material and blended just right to provide a good taste balancing future prospects and a good nutty and smooth, full-mouth feeling!
