From Yunnan Sourcing

Feng Shan Mountain in the county of Feng Qing is a series of mountain peaks with altitudes of about 1900 meters. The classic Feng Qing black tea and Pu-erhs were made from this area. This is a premium early spring 2008 production made from Yunnan large leaf varietal tea leaves picked while still small. The tea is characterized by a vigorous cha qi with some wood-like tones and thick somewhat flowery after-taste. This tea would benefit greatly from just a few months (to a few years of storage). Feng Qing tea factory teas have a long history and have proven to be an excellent investment for tea drinkers worldwide!

Very smooth, mild astringency, lightly floral, but no sharp edges. The leaves are very roughly, mechanically, cut in small pieces, it makes them look younger, I think. All in all, good pu erh, but, for me, it lacks a bit of character.

That pretty much describes my view of this tea. I wonder if it will age well. Your comment has also made me realise that I have not yet written anything about it. I must remedy that in the near future.

Drinking this tonight. I’ve brewed it western style and note the differences in my experience of it from last time I reviewed it. The dry leaf has a warm horse aroma still, but with mild tobacco notes. When brewed up I get a heady thick floral aroma, like a heavily perfumed old lady at the theatre, or a walk in a tropical garden on a warm evening. It is strong and laden with pollen. The brew is sweet with no astringency and coats the tongue thickly. There’s that word again: thick. I’m getting a lot of honeyed sweetness now, and no vegetal notes at all. It’s very pleasant, although I don’t think I could stomach a lot of this level of sweetness and tropical flowers for too long. All in all, I reckon it is developing well in my carefully curated storage, or is that despite my storage technique? (top of the bookshelf in a cardboard box)

This made me laugh.

It does not do to take oneself or one’s tea drinking too seriously! :)
