I think Wesli is referring to the Wild Old Tree Cake Ming Yuan Hao at Hou De rather than the 2005 Yieh Sheng Chiao Mu.Wesli wrote:2005 Ming-yuan Hao will seem very similar to the 2003 Keyixing.
Sounds like the same stuff! Light and breezy. You might try upping the leaf to 6 or 7 gr, which may require a bit shorter brewing times and give a little more variety of tastes.Bubba_tea wrote: I'm not getting a lot of complexity out of it. A bit smooth and buttery in texture, flavor is light & easy. I'm brewing just off boil, 30 sec, 5gms to a 5oz gaiwan - sound right?
Mmm,well, there are similar comments in the 4th paragraph of an article on the Puerh Live Journal today and if you look above your comments, you will see Tony has some less than glowing words for this cake also. It's not impossible that it is changing for the worse with time ... might also be it's your brewing or it's just not your kinda pu. I guess I might have to try to drag this out tonight and give a test drive.zacstill wrote: it was not harsh or smokey, but it wasn't very flavorful either. It reminded me mostly of watered-down dish soap, slightly flowery but mostly like hay or earwax. Not much sweetness in this cake. The viscosity was a bit too much for me as well, adding to the dish soap feel.
