Not exactly my cup. The taste is way too aggressive and though I kinda like it, it is a very bad idea to drink it while eating or as a complement to anything else… (like thinking, lol). The taste overpowers everything. It’s certainly an interesting experience but not the one you’d like to repeat too often. (i.e. brewing multiple times is definitely possible but by the time you finish first cup you are a week away from wanting to try it again)
The latest(as in – sold 2 months before this note) batch of Yu Lu Yan is considerably different in taste to the original and, imho, much much worse.
The balance of sweetness and astringency is way off. It feels too sweet and there’s this aftertaste which was ok in the previous batch but here its too strong.
