Yeah I would say its a safe bet that the president of the american chapter of the XZH fan boy club knows about this site.
I had forgotten all about it though. I think its been up for about a year maybe a little less.

SOTD: XZH 2011 DianGu TieBing (iron cake) - (http://www.sanhetang.com.tw/product.aspx?productid=1298)
This tea is fairly bitter but has a good underlying fruitiness which produces some nice huigan. In fact I would say that this is probably the most bitter young sheng I've had in some time. Like other young XZH sheng, the liquor is slightly orange. Also, it doesn't have that very green young sheng taste that is found in Nada's cakes and most YS cakes. This seems to be a "signature" of XZH sheng. I don't know if it comes from just slightly more oxidation or some other type of processing.
The qi from this tea was quite nice - energizing but not causing jitteriness. It was also quite durable.

The 2007 DXS maocha could be astoundingly bitter and rough.
No sheng of the day today, was Secret Fragrance shu, but yesterday was a satisfactory '05 MYH Yieh Sheng. Not really having anything exiting these days...
