From Yunnan Sourcing

“Huang Shan Gu Shu” (lit. Remote Mountain Old Tree) is a mountain in Jinggu County of Simao where 100-300 year old tea trees are growing. Huang Shan tea trees are Assamica varietal growing wild without intervention. Tea is harvested only twice a year, not 4 times a year like in many places. This gives the tea more strength, body, aroma and cha qi!

The brewed tea is pungent, full-bodied and with layered bitterness and sweetness mingling together. It can be steeped many time without losing steam. This tea is certainly good for aging and will be noticeably more delicious and textured as times passes.

Bought a cake of this a whim based off of the amazing 2015 production.

Many similarities come to mind, but mostly the sweats. They started after cup one and heat followed, it’s going to be a ride. Love the energy in this one, cannot say enough. Flavors are all there with a small hint of aged flavors. Took me almost 2 years to crack into this one and it is well worth it.

Manure comes to mind, but more of a woody manure rather than an stringent/green manure. Strong earthy tones are noticeable.

Like mouthfeel? Starts in the back, moves to the middle and then again to the back and it doesn’t die out. Between the energy and mouthfeel, I would recommend this tea to anybody who doesn’t know what puerh is or what Qi is. On top of that it has plenty of flavor and is a very deep tea not lacking in any aspects.

Try it, regret and Huang Shan cannot be used in the same sentence.

The 2015 HSGS is my favorite sheng so far. I’ve found that too many sheng are either too expensive for the quality or just not interesting. I’m glad 4 cakes while it was under $80. Now, I wish I had grabbed a sample of the 2016 version, but the price has skyrocketted.

If you go to that listing, you cannot review the tea. There is some technical error occurring with that one and when I pull it up I get a disfigured listing if compared to any other one. Check it out and let me know if is just my computer/browser. If I wanted to review this tea I needed to recreate a listing, sorry if that was the wrong move but I didn’t see any other alternative.
