Most aged huang Pians I’ve tried are nice but I usually get about 4 steeps before it’s cashed. This stuff gave me 14 and that was with pushing it. I got all the nice figgy tobaccoey tamarind flavors I expect but I get more than I expected. The only deficit I noticed was a slight sour note. Perhaps I pushed it too hard or perhaps the storage got a little dry although as it was shipped directly from Yiwu I rather doubt that. I plan to add a bit of humidity and try again in a few weeks. The qi is nice and relaxing as well. Definitely glad I got a decent sized chunk. This vendor is exceptional. I’ve tried about a dozen teas and every one was excellent, from the ripe gushu to the semi aged and young teas every one has been a winner in its category. Right now I’m enjoying a 2017 Gedeng gushu maocha which isn’t listed here. Gedeng being my fav of the 6ftm this is probably the best young Gedeng I’ve tried.

I’ve been a huge fan of all manner of black tea since the early 90s particularly second flush Darjeeling, Fujian, Yunnan and Assam teas but last winter fell headfirst into the sheng world and the rest is history…
