From Yunnan Sourcing

First flush of spring 2012 material from 60 to 100 year old wild arbor tea trees growing in Xin Ban Zhang village. Xin Ban Zhang is the neighbor village to Lao Ban Zhang and the tea from here shares much character with Lao Ban Zhang tea. The bitterness is a bit more persistent with Xin Ban Zhang. The leaf structure, mouth-feel and aroma is much the same. An intense cha qi accompanies the drinking experience. This intensity is the perfect fuel to transform this tea through the years.

This is a nice loose compressed cake that broke apart easily. It has a slight mineral taste with a touch of bitterness on the tongue. It has a very thick mouthfeel to it that is followed by tongue tingling after drinking it. I have done 9 infusions so far and it is carrying on well. A pretty nice young sheng with a nice floral aroma.

Perhaps I will sample this tea =)

Sounds like it’s a good candidate for aging :)

mrmopar

Yeah I got a sample size used about half of it. I may get some more of this and stick it away a year or two/

How do you think it will age? Bulangs are among my favourite to drink and stash!

mrmopar

Not sure since this sheng thing is kind of new to me. If it has already lost some of that bitterness people associate with it. Should age well if that is any indication.

For got this has some nice leaf in it. Not chopped up.
