06 Luxi Brick of Dehong - decent tea...enjoyable enough. Tastes like purple leaf as I have stated before.
2010 Mangshi Maocha - horrible (trash)
09 Mengku Wei Zui - Pure dreck. Tastes like poison. (trash)
08 Menghai 0622 801 - Just okay. It's a shame to dry store this stuff.
I'm done keeping crap tea around. I'm cleaning house and tea is going in the trash. (Changtai above is in the trash as well.)

Sadly its the same size as my Sunsing pot but thicker/heavier and possibly lower fired. Does a duller clay mean it's lower fired? I brewed that 90's Taiwan brick from realchinatea and it does a rather nice job. The other 2 aged teas worked well too. It doesn't mute too much aroma or flavor. I suspect this pot is gonna see some heavy use with mid-aged sheng. I also picked up another cheap 100ml yixing in Chinatown today. Its a bit thinner and possibly higher fired too. I'm hoping to use this one for dryer stored sheng under 15yr. I already have 5g of 2000 Fu Hai brick set for my first session with this new guy. I'm really hoping this pot likes it younger and dryer. Its the perfect size for everything i drink so if dryer sheng fails i'll try my Hong Kong stuff. Tomorrows update will include my first impressions. I now have a family of four!
