An amazingly good Yi Wu tea for the price… blows the 2011 Chawangpu Yiwu Zheng Shan Xiao Bing Cha out of the water!!! Not as good as the much more expensive 2012 YS Xi Kong!

Something exquisite about this. Reminds me of early spring mornings, fresh dew on freshly cut grass. There is a serious spring mist flavor to this Sheng. The name is really well suited. For such a young tea, the mouthfeel is like drinking clouds. I brewed this in my purple yixing, and after about the third infusion (at 15 seconds) the mao cha really opened up, and gave a full umami feel. The viscous of this tea is sharp, full bodied, but not overly bitterly thick. The astringency is pleasant, and gives a sweet/slightly anise bitter aftertaste. This tea is full of Chi, and I felt very energetic but not giddery, (and without a stomach ache, which some young sheng-cha tend to give after long sessions) for several hours after finishing my gongfu session of this bingcha. One of the best “tea drunk” sensations I’ve had in quite a while. This almost reminded me of a good fukamushi sencha.
