wasnt expecting a session tonight, but the kids went to bed, and the wife packed it in early, so here i am. got this with my first package from the yunnan sourcing tea club. so many firsts with this one. i have nothing to compare this to, but im just going to throw this out there. i mustve went about 15 steeps or so. smoky, tobaccoy. i got a slight bit of astringency at times, but my mouth was always far from dry. after 7 or 8 steepings a baked apple taste came out while still maintaining the smoky tobaccoiness. the last couple steepings had a sourness to them. the taste, and especially the smell of the wet leaves brought the ghost of a memory that i couldnt quite grab. a little later it came a little more, something about arriving at a hotel, or somewhere at night as a kid. this is my first raw puerh, and this is the best tea i ever drank. if i can say that so early in the game with so little experience i cant wait to find out whats in store. cha qi fit this evenings atmosphere perfectly quiet, calm, meditative, heightened focus. finishing this off with a killshot 20 minute plus steeping. to my untrained sense of taste this tasted basically like a regular steeping albeit a bit flatter.
