Recent Tasting Notes

I would be interested to know if anyone has tried this because I found it to be a wonderful surprise! It’s not showing much age (except in later steeps where a bit of smokiness and camphor sneaks in) but it has a sparkling flavor which features a ginger and honey fizzle that morphs into mango and tangerine in later steeps.

Mouth feel is moderately thick and makes my teeth buzz; the soup is sweet and goes down smoothly with very little bitterness. I guess this tea would be considered a teenager, but there’s none of the awkwardness or immaturity associated with that stage of life.

200 °F / 93 °C 0 min, 15 sec 7 g 130 OZ / 3844 ML

I’ll add this to my wishlist and pick up a sample with my next YS order


It is under 2008 Menghai ‘Springtime Water’ YS has it or if you need a different source I know of another.


Sounds good
