Classical version of a dry stored tea. There is smoke in the cup and a bunch of the youthful notes still alive and well in this one. The later steeps mix the smoke and wood along with the sharper green notes still left. If any of you can separate the leaves in these Dayi cakes my hat is off to you. I just can’t seem to do it without breaking a bunch.
Still a good one to experience a storage that doesn’t take as many youthfulness of the tea away.

Hope you all have been well. Has been a crazy year and a half for me. I am finally able to unplug from work for a week and not have both jobs going. A bunch of people seem to be mia on here and I hope they are all well as anyone reading this is I hope to be as well.

Hey y’all good to see ya! Yeah tea-sipper I have needed a break. Still need to find some people that seem lost to me at the moment. Rich, how is the kitty doing? I am working on a chairman junior at the moment.

mrmopar

ash, we are heading to healing springs in October. May be a side trip if all eases up with this covid mess.

Sounds like fun!

My latest experimentation is leaving some loose liubao open to elents (leaving kitched sliding door for few hours open rain or sun) and leaving chunks of liubao brick on top. I better start patenting these blends. Oh, maybe burning incense nearby to attract spiders.

Sierge, I have some Liu An airing now. I also save the loose stuff off my teas and make mrm’s house blend. Just toss it in and brew and you don’t have to waste much time or worry about.

Liu an is very cool. The best one I came across was from thetea.pl but still to me it was missing oiliness. I knew there was method to my nonchalance

2005 Spring of Menghai Dayi (HK Dry)

ordered as part of LP spring sampler

6.5g, 100mL gaiwan, Brita water, 212f

1x 5s rinse that smells slightly mushroomy (but have picked this note a lot in cha hai, so maybe just that lol)

dry leaves smell of smoke and dried fruit

wet leaves are smoky! a bit of sharpness, some dried fruit, and something oddly reminiscent of gasoline. Thought I also caught something like meat, but I had a bacon egg bagel for breakfast at this same desk earlier, so it could just be that.

consistency is thin throughout.

4s: sharp and slight medicinal that turns into a brief celery tinged sweetness on tongue before fading. light smoky aftertaste that lingers.

7s: less sharp. bit of mint, cooling, and medicinal on aftertaste.

8s: similar. itchy feeling in throat, but slightly fruity sense upon exhaling in throat/back nasal area. a bit hard to describe.

11s: not as harsh upfront, but lingering sweetness on aftertaste remains.

23s: lighter on taste. slight mushroom notes on initial that fade into fruit almost immediately.

25s: slight sharp + smoke that turns into similar aftertaste as before. slight aroma in throat.

30s: fading

1 min: similar to before

thermos: bit bitter, but not undrinkable. Nothing special to note. Unlikely to spring for a cake.

Flavors: Bitter, Celery, Fruity, Mint, Mushrooms, Smoke, Sweet
