Really nice tea. Bang Dong, it seems, is one of my preferred areas, and this one didn’t disappoint. Really nice herbal notes that are restrained by a mushroom savoriness and fruit and chocolate sweetness.

Great complexity and variety of flavor, and super easy to drink, especially for such a young tea.

I like this one as well.

I remember some chocolate milk and citrusy notes in the 2014 YS Bangdong too — now, that’s a dense, pungent tea that’s severely gone up in price. It tastes completely different from more recent BD pressings which are much more generically vegetal.

Quite the qi on this one! This is another very fine tea from glyxtea. It’s the second one I’ve tried so far. One thing that stands out is that both have had excellent broth color and clarity. This one has some super qi – I am getting hot and prickly at just the third steep, and I think my face is turning red. The tea is strong, but also light and crisp, with some high note bitterness throughout. It is also buttery, like young shengs often are, which I take to be a sign of good processing. Overall a very nice tea.

I really like this one too.
