This tea was well regarded, but I hesitated to get overly enthused as it is one of YS’s very few wetter stored cakes. However, having been in Kunming for 5 years or so now, it hit that sweet spot for me where’s it’s clearly seen some humidity but it not so funkadelic as to offend my oh-so-delicate white man sensibilities.
Mouth coating and length of flavor are both solid, while not being world-beating. As far as the actual flavor components, it’s one of those where you’ll just have to take my word that I liked it, as no actual descriptors that come to mind will likely sound pleasant. I suspect if you went out on a sun-dappled, dewy spring morning and threw a slightly damp stick for your faithful canine companion, the taste in his mouth as he clamped down to return the projectile for another round would be similar, if more fleeting.
I’ll not lie, though, if you threw a beeng of this like a frisbee, I’d lope after it on all fours and leap my best to capture it. Just sayin’.
