I received a healthy chunk of this as a sample from Yunnan Sourcing. It is very drinkable but does not blow me away. There is a slightly metallic taste to the tea that I cannot quite place. It is not unpleasant, just different. It also does not seem to have much longevity at the moment. I am brewing it in a 170ml Yixing pot with 8g of tea but the real flavour seems to go quite quickly. I am very tempted to get some of this for storage and see how it ages.

I am a qualified peripatetic berserkerologist peddling berserkjaknowledge at the University of Nottingham.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
