The pics are nice, but I don't do speechless.
OK. So we are different.
Hope that is not a problem. :p
Today, I dug out a piece of an 06 Lao Ban Zhang beeng from Scott. Took about 3g and decided to brew the tea in my favorite old gaiwan. The tea cake has been broken up and stored inside a zisha container for the last 3 months under humidity conditions of 70-80. So, this is what I got.
Astringency - not noticeable
Smoke - none
Dryness-(mouth) - none
Mouthfeel - lingering fresh floral
Hui gan - nice flowback after going down
Cha qi - Weaker compared to the 06 LBZ 100g brick
Flavor - Smooth and bitter turning into sweet as the back of the tongue starts to salivate
Overall value - 4 out of 5
Purchase again - OK to buy some if price is acceptable
