Delicious puerh from a mini tuo of unrecollected source--enjoying the deep bronze/red color of the liquor from my Splitfire seashell yunomi, and the sweet earthy taste of the pu. Whatever it is, it's quite delicious, and will stand up to a hearty supper without any difficulty.

2005 Shuangyi Factory "Bulang Zhi Xing" aka 2008 Hailanghao - Star of Bulang

I bought this cake about two years ago I and did not pay to much attention to it since. The description says that the maocha was produced in 2005 and pressed in 2008, it costed less than 20 USD at red lantern. The storage seems to be pretty good, the liqour has a nice orange colour, the aroma cup caries a heavy honey like fragrance. The taste is good old fashioned bulang, woody and sweet. As the wet leaves cools, a fruity element is added (peach, I would say). Good thickness with nice kuwei turning to huigan. I am happy with this one and I have hopes regarding its ageing.

BTW, I had now idea till now, that this cake can be also found under the Hailanghao brand name.

2012 Lincang Impression from teaurchin. It has a wonderful floral/nectar aroma. In the cup there I'd quite a bit of bitterness so I keep the infusions short.

Jianshen Xigui laozhu '12. It was weak in the mouth unlike a good quality xigui that should be more impressive, but the slow huigan was explosive and really good: 100% red currant jelly

I tried their Serenity Liu Bao last week and thought it excellent. Their Longan Puerh was good too. They have some of the best tea but it is expensive, expensive, expensive. Looking for some quality Liu Bao in the web, any ideas?

Zhou Yu's 2004 Tai He... This is a good tea. Smooth with a nice mouth feel and relaxing qi. A good tea for a cold and rainy evening.

Sometimes the tea has to be the beauty of the session....like in 95% of my tea drinking at work!
