From Jing Long Yi Wu Tea Factory (Yunnan Sourcing)

Jing Long is a small Yi Wu based producer that has been making tea since 1998. This is an Spring harvest 2005 tea cake that was stone-pressed in the traditional manner.

Pressed in Yi Wu from Yi Wu area tea trees, and then stored in Jinghong until December 2016, this has aged well and gives a gold-orange tea soup when brewed. Smooth, sweet with hints of honey and hay. There is a slight dark chocolate bitterness to it that quicky transforms in the mouth to a viscous and lubricating experience!

If you love Yi Wu tea, but want something aged, mellow but still having complexity then this just might be the tea you’ve been looking for!

Smooth, sweet, with a clean golden orange soup. Noted a fleeting bitterness and stone fruit aroma.

I’d bought a few sheng samples, this one has me wanting a cake. A lovely tea.

this was definitely the tastiest semi aged raw I have tried. There was a sweet note from beginning to end with just a little bitterness in the mix. There was no strong note of leather or tobacco although I could taste a feint note trying to emerge but not quite succeeding. This is one I will drink again. I only gave this eight steeps because I want to move on to something else while it is still early but this was really good and would definitely have gone twelve or fourteen steeps.

I steeped this eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 9.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.

Flavors: Sweet
