Spent the day with a 1997 "camphor" CNNP that auhckw offered awhile back. It has a very interesting flavor, rather enjoyable.

80s Moacha day

80's menghai factory Moacha from Teamasters. This was pretty good for a Moacha but a little one dimensional for how much he raved about it on his blog.

80's da ye Moacha courtesy of TingJunkie. A nice sweet tea. Similar to the 70s jiang Chen brick. But with much better hui gan .

2003 Yong Pin Hao 'Yin Hao Tuo'. A very clean blend of Bada & Yiwu leaves with a mellow hay aroma and thick mouthfeel. Tea is smooth, good huigan, and plenty of buzz in the body. Flavor develops after some brews. Liquor is deep orange and can take plenty more aging. No smoke or wet storage.

2013 Guafengzhai. Has calmed down significantly since I first tried it in May after pressing. Still sort of a bucking bronco. Still like it anyway. Was a crowd favorite when tasting with a group of 5.

1999 Aged Liu An Basket of Anhui from Yunnan Sourcing--a sample tea that tonight is just sweet and lovely with bits of anise and earthiness and so very, very nice.

2007 Mr. Feng FD (Qingchan)

Nice initial flavor profile ... smooth with little harshness and slight sweet notes right out of the gate. Definite energy in the first brew, but second and third infusions seem noticeably thinner/weaker.

Plan to keep brewing tomorrow and see how it continues ...

Today i decided to brew some early 90's 7542 in my newest yixing. This was stored very wet in HK so its normally a bit rough and unpleasant in a gaiwan. This pot smooths it out and makes it sweet and thick w/ deep dark bookish flavors i love in Hong Kong pu. I can't believe i wrote this tea off as a bad purchase. Its amazing what effect a well paired yixing can have.

93 yi wu moacha from EOT. this has the qi of a much older tea. It also has a interesting flavor. Not a lot of depth compared to a bing, but that is to be expected. This would be a good/cheap introduction into the energy of older teas.

I also had Another tea with strong qi today the 80s Chan xiang liu bao. The cha qi is noticeable after a couple sips but the tea has a weird flavor for the first three infusions it settles down and developed a taste similar to a liu an cha

I think tomorrow I may try that large leaf LB from the 60s now available at EOT.

1970's Zhi Ye Loose leaf Sheng Puerh from EoT

Nice tea. The dry leaves in a hot pot initially made me think the tea was stored too humidly for my tastes, but it doesn't come out that way in the brew. It's pretty clean tasting. Maybe lacking a tad in aftertaste, like most old loose pu. Other than that, Nada's description is pretty spot on, and I really appreciate that.

00 Kunming Hong Yin. This was traditionally stored . The tea is clean with no real funkiness but it was over done. So it is a bit life less but there is still enough bite left though that I think with dry storage for a few years it might start to brighten up and be something decent.

Today my pot was filled with 1970's Tong Qing Hao. A sharp pinesol like woodiness fills the air as i lift the lid off my yixing pot. A lovely yet simple tea that brings nothing but happiness this morning. As i sip away i reminded of a time not too long that i could have acquired a cake from EOT. This sample came courtesy of Gasninja and i assume it originated from EOT. This session leaves me with a desire to try the 80's version that is offered at sampletea.com. Though i suspect its priced above what i'm willing to pay for border tea.

@Gasninja, Have you tried that 80's version?
