Got this from a buy from a friend with a Taiwan hookup.
I got about 10 grams of this one out to brew with. The cake as I got it was fairly dry in appearance. The leaf on the cake showed the signs of the humid storage. They seemed to be a bit older than the cake stated for its age. I would guess some humidity early on and then a lighter storage.
I gave a rinse of about 5 seconds and let it sit a while. The rinse showed color so I knew a bit about the age. I had the old book scent with some of that camphor mixed in. First steep about 5 seconds and color was nice. It has the notes of the storage early in the sip but the sweetness and smoothness of the aging of the tea. It has the camphor cooling and the sweetness on the tongue that seems to linger a while at the back of the tongue.
The cooling and the sweetness with some of the aged date notes are what stand out to me. This would be an easy choice when you wanted a no fuss tea to have every day. Pretty nice.

I am going to list another thing. I am going to be in the Santa Clara/ San Fran area March 7th through March 9th with the better half. I am wondering how to get my tea on the airplane so any tips? Also I know a few of you live in the area and I am fairly free after 1630 on Thursday , about all day Friday and most o=f the day till about 1700 on Friday. I am going to try and visit Alcatraz, ride the trolley car, visit Chinatown and see the Golden Gate bridge. Anyone around and maybe we can do a tea session while I am there. Would like to meet a few of you if we can do it.

I take my tea on vacation with me every time, not once have I had an issue. I make my loose leaf and have never been asked about it… I’ve ever stuffed entire kettles and gravity well infusers into my baggage carry on!

Todd

Oh, I was hoping you’d have some time on Saturday. I do have appointments those days and will probably work from home, so I should be available close to lunch time.

Todd I will be available Saturday lunch. I want to do the Chinatown tour. I will message you on here.
Mastress Alita, that is an idea I haven’t thought of. I am going to pack just like that.
