2010 Hai Lang Hao "Cha Wang" YiWu Autumn
Probably not the best idea to start off YiWu tasting week with this good a tea, but the temptation was too hard to resist.
I like young sheng when it has a complex blend of floral and tobacco suspended in a nice ku wei wrapper. What has impressed me with this tea is the durability and ability to take varying lengths of infusions in stride.
It has quite a long coating finish that floats between flavors and ends a bit sweet.
Compare to HLH's wallet busting LBZ, I'd say while not cheap, this is a nice representation of YiWu and for that matter, young sheng. I sure would like to try a spring version of this tea.
Sorry for the lousy iPad photo.
