From Hai Lang Hao (Yunnan Sourcing)

“Yang Chun San Yue” means Springtime March. This is Hai Lang’s first production of 2012. It’s a wild arbor (not ancient arbor) tea picked in Mid-March from the village of Zhang Jia Wan in mountains of Yi Wu. Zhang Jia Wan teas are some of the highest altitude trees in Yi Wu, significantly higher than Yi Wu town. The tea is a small production of 110 kilograms and was stone-pressed in the traditional manner with a 40 kilogram stone press. The tea itself is quite powerful in aroma, but balanced taste. Some bitterness but little astringency. An affordable high quality Yi Wu tea that will benefit greatly from aging.

Random backlog I found on Microsoft Word…

2012 Hai Lang Hao
Yang Chun San Yue
8g, 92c, 120ml
S1 shows immediately that the color is no longer ‘green’. Shades of ugly green/brownish stuff with some darker leaf in there. Up front there is a soft astringency that I assume will disappear because it’s quite faint. The taste leaves a nice tartness going on as the sweetness cannot be tasted unless you lick your lips since the mouth feel kind of tingles the taste away.
S2 the tea is opening up a bit more which makes the astringency not noticeable anymore because there is a bitterness that is creeping in. Maybe this is the type of tea that will need me to ride the waves with it until I find the calm waters. The taste is appealing behind the upfront hindrance of taste though. Somewhat of a wet cigar taste… if you’ve ever experienced that, not unpleasant but unique.
S3 took some time to let the mouth feel sit. Easily last for 5 minutes. Went back into the next steep with some more thought on what I am tasting. I think the bitterness might actually be described better as ‘full of tannins’ in regards to the light tobacco taste which reminds me of roasted asparagus; yet the mouth feel gives it complexity that I cannot describe very well.
S4 to S6 still a really strong mouth feel and the bitterness/tannic aspect is very much alive. Was not expecting to still have this going on at this point.
S7 to S10 still got the mouth feels but the bitterness is either used to by my mouth or it is dying down. This is probably a tea for someone who wants that tobacco’ish feeling going on or to store away a darker sheng that will produce a nice thick cup later on down the road as the viscosity with this one will surely grow.

I got 10 grams and put it in gaiwan and gave it a rinse for 5 seconds . The first steep for 5 seconds and it tasted like bitter grass.The second brew was for ten seconds and tasted stronger and the color was darker as well and it had a bitter edge to it and made my tongue tingle as.The last steep was stronger and darker and and done it for fifteen seconds and tasted like older hay and you could fell it in your throat after drinking.
