Hey the wrapper has a picture of The Last Supper! :lol:

Seriously, it is beautiful looking. I never heard of the Bai Cha Tang Tea Company. Very curious to hear your thoughts on it. The price is high enough it might really be all Lincang wild tree, and with two years to its credit, it may brew soft enough to enjoy now.

Oh, my gosh, it's beautiful! So much green and gold. Does it actually look like the DTH photo? I am more of a shu drinker, but that does look tasty.

Why did I have to be born so middle class?

Maybe I'm just being a pessimist, but there's something about that picture that does scream Image->Adustments->Hue/Saturation.

The cakes is a much deeper brown in color the buds and leaves are smaller and in my opinion of better quality. I'm telling you the real thing is far better. The cake had a wonderful odor to, like a barn full of hay bails, which I love because I live out in the country where there are plenty of farms. The brew smells wonderfully of sweetens and honey and as hop describes it, musky. The liqueur is full bodied, well rounded, no bitterness or smokiness just beautiful. The liqueur traveled well, very smooth. It leaves your mouth warm and thick. As hop descirbed in his review this tea makes you warm everywhere! You will sweat, It should provide a wonderful gongfu session on a nice winter snowy day. A+, Get it!

Thanks Hop Goblin!

Wow, sounds great! Just after you announced in the IM that your notes were up, Adagio went down on me for 4.5 hours. I feel like I arrive late to the party, but the cake sounds really good! Just what I need, another gotta have cake! You are evil, Shogun89, evil I tell you!

There is nothing more disappointing than buying something, looking forward to getting it and it looks nothing like the picture online. Are you brewing or saving? I saw your review, but no pictures . . . hmmmm.
