2011 Dashu Bulang White2Tea— Nothing short of very tasty. I see that it is no longer on the site but the 2013 is there. It’s a serious price performer. I found it to be sweeter than bitter, but with hints of smoke and a bitterness that builds. This was another sample from JC. Highly drinkable in oppressive heat, refreshing, what a Bulang should be.
Flash steeped. I’ve been experimenting with 195 degree water and flash steepings of around five seconds with good success. This one works well that way, no overwhelming bitterness and little astringency, a kind of slickness is evident as with other highly alkaline teas. Not as bitter as I would expect a Lao Man E tea to be.
Yum.

Dry – Floral, Tobacco, hints of sweetness, bitter-woody and floral notes, faint fruit notes.
Wet – Bitter, Tobacco,Smoke, floral, some sweeter fruit hints.
Liquor – Gold-Amber

Gong Fu in Yixing Gaiwan 130ml — 5-6gm tea**

1st 4s – Tobacco, some smoke, bitter and bittersweet notes with hints of young harshness. As it goes down, it mellow a bit, but still wears smoke. It slowly builds a pleasant Huigan.

2nd 4s – Strong Tobacco, smoke, some deeper notes that remind me of Licorice/medicinal taste and bittersweet notes up front. As it goes down, it mellows considerably and wears sweeter notes that linger through the more apparent smoke and tobacco notes.

3rd 4secs Harsher, more assertive Tobacco with bitter-wood, medicinal/licorice notes and bittersweet notes up front. As it goes down, it mellows again, but wears some of the harshness, smoke and tobacco notes. It slowly develops sweeter notes that may slightly resemble fruit(apricot?)

4th 6 Strong tobacco with again assertive bitter-wood almost medicinal/licorice-like taste and bittersweet notes (somewhat floral) up front. As it goes down, it mellows considerably, but continues to stay mostly harsher; however it slowly develops sweeter notes at the end.

Final Notes
I had around seven steeps from this one. I feel like it would take another 3 easily, but only if you can deal with the cumulative harsher notes and also cumulative astringency. Even after all of that ‘harshness’ I can still respect this tea. I feel like Islay Whiskey fans will get a nice kick out of this one, even more for the price! Lagavulin anyone?

I’ve got something from this tea company called Silver Peacock. I’ll send you some along with the samples. It’s aging quite nicely. Amazing clarity to the liquor.

Yang-chu

It doesn’t strike me as that harsh at all. Hmm.

JC

Well I did had it directly off the box it shipped in and samples do mellow a bit in the baggies :P To me it is a bit harsh, not overly, just more than others I’ve had recently (like the ChaWang BanPen I sent you).

This is another absolute steal. One of the few cakes I’ve bought without bothering with a sample first (partly because I’d read some positive reviews, partly because of the price), and I don’t regret it. I really like the strong tobacco-flavor and smokiness (although it’s definitely not for everyone), and the endurance is just superb. Can easily go 15 infusions or more. It doesn’t come with a lot of surprises (or development throughout the steeping), but it’s a nice tea for everyday consumption for those of us on a limited budget.

This is just a tasting note. After tonight this lovely tea is really starting to grow on me. The lovely tobacco flavor was highlighted by a very subtle smokiness that wasn’t present on my first tasting. Once again, the kuwei was perfect. I just may have to rethink my rating for this tea!!!!

I agree the smoke didn’t really jump out at me, but a nice compliment.

Fairly smokey and a little bitter. I think I’m still not a fan of sheng.
