Grabbed this one for work today. I don’t think I will again, this tea seems much to delicate and was a waste to drink at work under the wrong circumstances.
At any rate, grabbed too much leaf again and I’m not going to waste any so I was forced to fill half the cup with leaf. Wasn’t so heart-throbbing as I would anticipate with that much leaf. I guess that and the lack of consistent bitterness (apart from the first cup lack of any bitterness) plus the sweet dirt tones are all signs of Yiwu, in my experience anyway.
I drank a whole cake of 2005 “Big Green Tree” over the past few months at work and that being a daily Yiwu drinker I thought I’d go for this one. Would prefer to save this one for the gaiwan or jianshui and get some more Big Green Tree for work… as far as Yiwu is involved.
Keep this one to finer brewing.
