2016 Teadontlie

Excellent tea. The depth is coming out on this one. I did my usual 10grams to 100ml of water just off boiling and one rinse. The florality aroma of this one comes early. Sweetness almsxt like a gum taste comes in early. The later steeps lose much of the florality and the tea gets heavier and almost a touch viscous. Later steeps had the bitter aspects coming in. I played around in the leaves and would guess a couple of years leaf in this one. Nice leaf, and mostly 2 leaves and a bud. Found a couple that were almost able to stretch across my palm. Good tea to celebrate a bit with.

Happy Fourth of July to all. Let us remember the ones who gave us our freedom and still are on point to protect it.

Flavors: Floral, Heavy, Sweet, Thick

Hey Bagua, it´s been a while!

These two are great teas!
First one is a bit more bitter than the second one and more expensive. Both are really high quality teas, nice and fast huigan, last many and stable amount of infusions.

Forgot to add this one which is a bit cheaper because it's slightly younger tea.

"That's No Moon," 2015 shou pu'er. Picked and processed in Simao, Yunnan, and aged in Seattle. 5g, rinsed twice and brewed in 150ml of water, starting with a 30 second infusion.

Okay, I bought this mostly for the novelty wrapper, but local Seattle teamaker Crimson Lotus sources good tea, and this is no exception. Rich, dark color, fading to peach in later infusions. Full flavored but not syrupy or harsh, more like malt than molasses. After four or five infusions it gets thinner but in a well-balanced way, just a nice subtle flavor.

I was in Taipei recently and the Puerh prices there are insanely high. Ended up buying Taiwan Oolongs instead.

For the past 4-5 years, I have not purchased any puerh's as there's just too much to last me a lifetime.
However, at a trip to Malaysia late last year, I ended up buying a toong of Xigui, which I do not have a collection of, except for 2 balls (yes, compressed into the shape of a ball).
It's 2015 and I hope it will age well. The other toong is a Bulang shan.

Jesus, I reckon YS 2012 Qiu Yun is possibly the best raw pu offering they got. Bravo Scott, bravo! Superb cake.

Just buy them from Western vendors, YS, EoT, W2T...more reliable and you know what you are getting.

For much I like Taiwan stuff they can't compete against wild raw pu or aged sheng. It's like climbing 1,500 m mountain vs the moon landing. That explains why the Taiwanese prefer pu! ;)
