4g in Gaiwan.
Dry leaf: Dark.
Wet leaf: Dark chocolate; electric smoke.
Summary: The darkest cooked pu erh I have had. It has a surprising amount of complexity.

20s – This was a rinse.
20s – Browny liquor. Very mild with an unusual sharp/bitter note, that doesn’t seem to fit.
3 minutes – Dark brown liquor. Dark, sludgy, tarry and bitter. This is a very interesting, heavy going cooked pu erh. Thick mouth feel. It leaves a dry, dark chocolaty flavour, but not a dry mouth. This is the darkest chocolate in the box.
5 minutes – There appears to be a dark version of White2Tea’s 90’s Hong Kong in here. Raw beetroot still in the background. There is some soil and earth. No milky creaminess here. This is Darth Vader.
7 minutes – There is a vegetal, earthy sweetness. The darkness has mainly gone and left the skin of raw beetroot.
15 minutes – Has a raw beetroot / turnip (swede) sweet taste. It would be interesting to do a side by side comparison with White2Tea 90’s Hong Kong with this brew.

Flavors: Bitter, Dark Chocolate, Tar

Back into pu-erh and loving it.
First time ordering from Yang Qing Hao and I have had highs and lows. I aim to review at some point.

I drink mainly rooibos and peppermint tea these days as I leave my pu-erh tea to age.

I decided to join Steepster because I have found other people’s opinions on teas very useful in deciding what to buy, and I thought I would contribute.

Online orders so far:
Dragon Tea House – Free shipping and a huge selection of tea.
White2Tea – Excellent communication with the seller and good selection of teas. Teas came in metallic zip lock bags.
Yunnan Sourcing – Huge selection; recent change to delivery price made this a good option.
SampleTea – Selection of aged teas. Teas delivered were very well packaged and presented.
Pu-erh.sk Small selected. Excellent communication with seller. Packing was solid – the teas were more than safe.
Street Shop 88 (eBay) Low prices with free delivery. Sample size was precisely what I ordered.
O-Cha Seller of Japanese teas. The daily Sencha and Shincha were awesome.
Essence Of Tea – The order arrived after over 5 weeks, but I am really impressed with the teas so far.
Chawangshop – Order came very well packaged.
