7.5 grams 100 ml yixing. First the dry leaf long intact fuzzy leaves with a nice sheen, excellent material. They are extremely pungent, opening the tin filled my entire kitchen with the scent of the tea. Now for the steepings all i can say is HONEY BOMB. On the lid, in the cup, in the empty pitcher and especially in the taste. Thick sweet floral honey hits all parts of the mouth and throat and sticks. There are some hints of other typical yiwu flavors but they are in the background but the honey is driving, ain’t no one else touching the wheel. Needless to say but this is some very tasty brew. As the session goes on the honey subsides a bit but remains the dominate flavor throughout. 10 plus steeps and the tea is still oily and full tasting. Steeps are still short showing that the tea has plenty of strength.
Now the qi in this comes on relatively fast compared to most teas but slower than other CYH teas I’ve tried. Creeps in after the second cup builds to a nice buzz and remains at that level till a good hour after I stopped. Typical yiwu feelings of calm and relaxation (for me).
Very much enjoyed all aspects of this tea and I’m strongly considering a cake of this after I have a couple more sessions with it
