Breaking this out after storing a few years. Time to see if the “hype” is up to par.
Double wrapper as stated in the vendor description, phase one pass.
Got 10 grams , easy gaiwan brewing for this one.
Leaf looks a bit “chopped” not the full leaf teas that I have drank lately.
Gave a quick rinse to wake things up. Quick steeps of about 5 seconds each. Poured into my 10 oz. mug. Nice color to be as young as it is.
Still a bit strong, a fair bit of smoke in it. Nice hit of tobacco and camphor. Gives a bit of a tongue buzz to it.
Still “burly” and young but quite a bit more stout and powerful than most other Dayi products of this age . Not for the faint of heart but for those punch me in the chops type of tea. Some light fruit notes and a touch of an in between bitter to sweet note.

Yah I have enjoyed the “Smack to the choppers”.

Sometimes you crave some the strong ones!

5 more years should start to be a good tuo, still smoky but will have that color of scotch. I have a tong of 2005 Menghai tuos and they are pretty good now.

Cwyn you are a lucky one to have that tong. One day I will have some good aged stuff as well, I hope…
