From Tea Urchin

2014 Gao Shan Zhai Spring Raw 200g
2014 was a near perfect year, weather wise, for Gao Shan Zhai, with dry sunny conditions prevailing throughout the harvesting period. As a result, the aroma is especially good this year, with brown sugar, broad beans and orchids, followed by cotton candy. The soup is not that thick but very clear and beautiful. Best of all is the chesty chaqi, a tight ball forms in the chest, and it feels like your collar bone is vibrating. The flavor has a clear beginning, middle and end with mild tannins rising to a pleasant bitterness, with a slight drying sensation followed by a sweet finish and a gorgeous aftertaste that lingers in the throat, the huigan can be felt with each breath.

I finally took my taste testing a little more serious these past few days. I weighted out 15g of this tea and split it into 3 piles. Sunday, Monday, and today, I went through a session of this tea.

I find it to be easy to brew: Flash steeps provided a more clear liquid that was sweeter, but longer steeps (10+ seconds) began to darken and have a more deep vegetable taste. The leaf, at this point and age, is not as beautiful as it once was which stinks because the pictures of this from when it was first pressed are WOAH!

This could be a pretty good daily drinker with the ability to steep light or medium on the spectrum of depth or even the balance of sweet or roasted spinach. It’s really as simple as that. I don’t find this tea to be a showcasing one, but it’s certainly one I enjoyed drinking for the last few days which means something as I am probably hitting 100 different shengs this year at this point which means the bars keep going higher and higher and higher. Saying that this was enjoyable is a compliment most teas will no longer see anymore.

Oh the issue of trying so many things… so many become typical and I do not look forward to realizing that more this year.

A lot of teas in general started to taste the same to me after a while. That’s why I’m narrowing teas down to my favorites with the attempt of being pickier in purchase, or go by several suggestions of the people whose taste buds I know. Or can accurately simulate and imagine.

I’m so excited for tomorrow. I’m thinking about minimizing the blind tasting to four teas at most, with two being ideal. I’m also expecting some Shan Lin Xi if you want any.
