The best Hekai I've had was 2700/500g last year, a pretty famous vendor sitted at Maliandao..the Laoban might be crazy putting the price but people still go there because their tea is good.
fairly sweet with a lack of real character is exactly what it was. Some people might even believe to be putted as Yiwu...very friendly taste I'd say.
And I've had other Hekai of different characters..from harsh bitter to def. platation trait. Gushu is difficult because so many variables exist.
Very true. Hekai has a huge production of tea and a large range of flavors and character. Part of what makes the whole "This is not that region!" game so laughable is the gigantic variance in what kind of tea can come out of a certain area.
The 2014 Hekai I liked a lot had a strong bitter character and was thick in body. Others were more towards the sweet and non-descript end of the spectrum.
