Puerhshop - 2006 Arbor Yinhao Tuocha

I will attempt to give a very crude review , bear with me.

Tea is from the Mengku, Lincang area. The claim is that it is silver buds. Examining the toucha shows that the leaves are indeed nice looking, at least on the outside.

The wet leaves have a pleasant odor and a slight fruit smell.

I brewed at least 5G in a 150 ml , (dont laugh im at work) plastic gongfu pot.

infusions - rinse 10s, then 13s, 10s, 15, 15

The liquor is clear, bright, and amber.

This is a very light tea. No bitterness, but a slight mouth dryness. Im still not sure how to judge presence of Gan, but If I am correct it is a sweetness associated with the taste. I would also say there is also nice buttery-ness too it.

I am into the 5th infusion and it is still very pleasant.

If anyone has some constructive criticism on my review, by all means go ahead.

That's a very nice review. I have had this tuocha and my experience was similar to yours. My first session I thought it was pretty good. The second session I started to get a little bored with it, but it wasn't bad.
