A really nice aged Baozhong from FLT - wasn't available on her website because she only brought a couple bags back and her regular customers bought them all the first day - wonderful stuff.
Flash infusions to start: chinese medicine, spicy herbal notes, date, plum and leather. Big round mouthfeel, persistant hiu guan and serious sweet and smooth aftertaste that will make you smile hours later.
This is an aged baozhong to Love! I'll be sooo sad when it's gone but this is the nature of life - do not cling to the future or past, cling to the present with all your might!
edit: second day of this session, at this point the brew time is around 15-20s, still going strong with no end in sight. I'm brewing it with boiling water and the gaiwan leaves have expanded to mostly fill the gaiwan but not pushing the lid up like I brew most gao shans - this tea seems to like a small bit of breathing room. It's nice to have a whole bag of a tea like this - gives you time to live with the tea, get to know it, have many fruitful conversations with it and yes, grieve it when it's gone.
