Going back into this sample I got from Dragon Teahouse.
To be “Fair” the sample I got was from the middle round divet of the cake, so it was really compressed. I got 10 grams from it and found a surprise when separating the tea.
It still has the smoke aroma of the wet leaf. Color has darkened a bit.
1st steep. 10 seconds, very light in flavor , aroma and color.
2nd steep a bit more “golden” as an aged sheng would indicate. Flavor still a bit off.
3rd steep it opens up a bit. Some smoke a little sweet and a slight astringency to it.
Not my favorite Haiwan cake but hopefully will age a bit more as I think it is still a bit young. In a “fairness” the middle of the cake piece may not have aged as well as the edges of the cake.
Holding back rating as I intend to pass this sample on in the future for a better analysis than mine.

What was the surprise you found when separating the tea?

mrmopar

Oh I shouldn’t say but I think it was a piece of hair in it.

SimpliciTEA

Thanks. I was thinking it was perhaps something worse.

mrmopar

Nah I have found hair and the plastic from the sacks but nothing more than that. I do hit it with boiling water so the should kill anything.

Hints of age, mild and pleasant cigar smokiness, slightly peppery. Nice creamy color and mouthfeel, camphor that lingers. Qi not very strong but noticeable, gentle. Overall very drinkable and enjoyable. May be something special with a little more age.
