So with all the shipping nightmares from China I’ve been getting my fix from the YS US site. I’ve heard a lot of buzz about this tea in relation to its potency, balance, complexity and bang for the buck so I decided to blind cake it during the 12% off sale. Glad I did. I’ve lately become a bit of a single origin snob and forgotten how satisfying a masterful blend can be . I don’t know if Xiao is a Taoist but she has achieved a perfect balance of yin and yang. Big evergreen notes balanced by stone fruit and honey. Bitter and sweet rotate around one another. Just enough astringency to let you know it’ll age well. Big qi that punches way above the price. It’s the stoned roadrunner feeling I get from Banzhang area teas. I have only one complaint about this tea but it’s only been in my storage 2 weeks so I’m hesitant to lodge it…I only got 6 steeps. A tea this good I want at least a dozen. Sometimes a little resting will fix this. I’ve found that hotbox storage can increase the number of steeps and bring life to tea in its awkward stage. I’m gonna rest it a month and see if it steeps longer. If not I may try the hotbox. Either way this tea is a hit.
