From Berylleb King Tea

Size: about 460g/Column, about 500g/Column with the bamboo basket.
The tea is made from good tea leave from Bulang Mountain in Yunnan. The tea leaves were processed by transaction traditional crafts first, then were pressed in a bamboo tube, after 2~3 months, the column was shaped completely, the bamboo tube was opened, the column tea was taken out and put into a bamboo basket. The tea liquor yielded is not very bright, the taste of it is not bitter into our mouths, after a few seconds, we will feel very good sweet and good pure good tea flavor, and the sweet will linger. If store for some time, the tea will be yield bright yellow tea liquor, and the taste and flavor will change better. In all, the tea is good in quality, it is a product with good quality and low price.

One of the last samples from my swap with AllanK.

And this is another good one. The dry leaf smells a bit apricoty, but there’s also another very sweet scent. Like candy. O_O

There’s no bitterness on the first two steeps and this definitely has a slightly different character from other shengs. It’s got a medium body and is very pleasant through the whole sip. Nothing to kick you in the ass right at the end. The aftertaste lingers nicely.

I added 1/2 tsp of sugar to the sharing pitcher, as A had suggested, and there definitely are some fruity notes that come forward. I don’t think this really needed sugar, but I found that it was a nice addition.

I don’t know if I would buy this one because of the size. How do you even store something like this? Aaawww who am I kidding? It tastes good, so yeah. I probably would buy it. I would be interested to see how this ages!

This tea is really, really good. I added a small amount of sugar to it. This brought out an incredible honey and apricot flavor to the tea. I don’t know if it would be there without the sugar. I did not add much. I bought this because I thought it looked interesting and I am glad I did. I don’t know if three weeks in my pumidor had any effect on the tea but it was good. The honey and apricot notes were prevalent in the first two steepings and less thereafter. It was only a little bitter in the first steeping and not at all after that. By the fifth steeping it was very smooth. It lost a little depth of flavor by the fifth steeping, but not much. In the end I steeped this six times and think I could certainly have gotten three or four more out of the tea.

I steeped this six times in a 140ml Yixing teapot with 5g leaf and 200 degree water. I gave it one 10 sec rinse. I steeped it for 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.

The spent leaves had a really nice apricot aroma to them. I never noticed any bamboo flavor despite this being stored in bamboo.

Flavors: Apricot, Honey

Awesome, A! I think I will try this one tomorrow morning :)

I predict you will like it. You might even like it more than me because you are more of a sheng fan, I am at heart a shou drinker.
