Sampled this one, wasn’t expecting much, but certainly am not disappointed. It is light bodied and floral, as expected from Jing Mai-Shan, but is BITTER in the best possible way. Very sweet and inviting, with one of the better huigans I’ve had in recent memory… Loses a couple points for wok-charring, unfortunately, otherwise a very good tea. Reminds me most of the Yi Bi, of all things.

This tea was good overall. It was sweet and smooth. It had notes of apricots or plums. I added a small amount of sugar, don’t know if this intensified the apricot flavor. There was also a very slight, slight note of sourness that appeared around steep four and persisted. Even with this it was good. I would still rate this quite highly and would try it next time at 175 degrees and see if the sour note goes away.

I brewed this six times in a 150ml gaiwan with 7g leaf and 200 degree water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 45 sec. The spent leaves had a distinct burnt aroma to them.

Flavors: Apricot

I wonder if the sour note was my taste buds as I got it in another tea last night?

This one has a creamy mouth feel. Quick rinse and then 10 sec steep. Very smooth and did not detect any bitterness. 2nd steep, Still creamy but with a bitter edge. All other steeps stayed the same as the 2nd.

I drank this the other night but didn’t rate it. I don’t think it has enough “Punch” for an old arbor cake like some of the rest I have tried. Maybe with age it will open up more.
