A few months after my original review, I find this tea to be almost perfect.
Very Wu-liang Mt at the outset and then flowery beyond the beyond, a sensation that build and lingers.

Finally bringing this out after some aging.
I got 11 grams to start this off with. I gave a rinse and let it sit about 30 minutes. I knew from the rinse that it had aged a bit.
First brews at 5 seconds each and into the mug.
This has a nice golden color emerging in the brew. This one is till pungent and bitter in the cup. I get smoke , wood and the bitter notes from this one. Still pretty strong and there is the hint of camphor in there. It is a fairly full bodied head on one, just still very young for and XG in the age department.

Flavors: Bitter, Camphor, Smoke, Wood

I have a 90s Xiaguan that still has some harsh notes to it, the only thing I’ve noted is that is is thicker and smoother, it started developing that reddish spectrum of amber. I hope it keeps aging. it would be awesome to get to that day where you say ‘WOW! it happened!’ lol

Kirk, I have had this in my storage for about 3 years now. I hope it keeps aging away well.
