From Yang Qing Hao

2004 Yang Qing Hao “Yiwu Gushu” Tuo Raw 300g
Premium YiWu Gushu blend (not single origin YiWu).
YQH was started by Taiwanese pu-erh collector, Yang Shi-Nan. Mr Yang has collected and studied pu-erhs since the 1980’s. His dissatisfaction with modern “pu-erh making” led him to work to revive the pre-60’s pu-erhs premium quality and tradition. His teas are now highly regarded and considered a premium boutique brand.

Premium YiWu material + authentic GuShu + 100% YiWu area blend + produced by a knowledgeable tea maker + carefully stored in Taiwan = a good tea in my experience. This tea did not disappoint. While this may not be the very best YQH tea I have in my collection, it is a very nice tea. Sweet and earthy notes initially coming from the wet leaves. The early sips offer a sweet, earthy taste which becomes a bit fruity after the first two infusions; a vanilla overtone emerges in the 4th and 5th infusions. The tea liquor offers good mouth and throat feel – smooth feel of the tea in the mouth and throat with nice textures. Overall, the tea has a fairly light body which deepens with longer steeps. Decent chi comes from the tea throughout the session. The wet leaves look very good but since this was formed into the more tightly compressed tuo shape, there are more bits and pieces resulting from the picking off of leaves; nonetheless the material seems to be of high quality.
When you have an opportunity to purchase 12 year old authentic GuShu YiWu material in 2016 at $200 for a 300g tuo ($0.67 per gram), that is a very good deal and a tasty tea to enjoy! If you enjoy tea with nice age on it, as I do, this one is worth owning.

The Tsang Liu Gushu is top shelf as well. Excellent body and throat feel to it.

This tuo also went down by something like $40 since the last order which makes it very tempting! Better than all of the cheaper YQH imo.

jschergen – yes, my ’04 tuo cost $240 but it is now priced at $200. For my tastes and preferences definitely a good purchase.
mrmopar – I am very happy with every YQH purchase I have made (each is worthy of mention and comments). Many are similar if they are YiWu (like this ’04 tuo) but the 6 mountain blends are also very, very good (like the ’05 Tsamg Liu you mention – now increased in price from $175 to $195). The YiWu and 6 Mtn. blends differ a bit but both are worth owning IMHO. Quality like this is more difficult to find (again my opinion) so I am picking up quite a bit because it will not be available to us forever.

Like Marshalln says, “Hit it hard”. He talked of the same thing. If you like it stock up om it as it won’t always be available.
