From Mei Lea

2010 Fuding Bai Mu Dan & Shou Mei that comes in a 150g cake, 5×150g tong or 5g taster. Super buddy with lots of fat, furry, silver buds to give a bright taste. Comparable to Jade Star I for those that are familiar. It takes a few steeps to get going, but once it does, expect an incredible experience. Pleasant mouth feel with psychoactive effects.

Very heady. Takes a couple of steeps to really get going but when it does it is a strong buzzy tea that is very relaxing. Orange honey liquor and some nice fruity notes. Good astringency. While it has already been aged I think this is one to improve over time.

First few steeps give stone fruits with a kind of jammy background then opens up with a little more citrus and a slight sweetness.

15 sec first infusion + 10 seconds on each infusion after. I’m sure this tea can do more than 10 but usually with an aged white I will do around 8 infusions before putting the leaves in a pan with water and simmering it for a good 20 minutes to bring out all the goodness and make a super potent last brew. Try it and I guarantee you will love it.

205 Degrees F, Gongfu, 20 + 5 Sec infusions

Everything I was expecting and more. This tea is very smooth. I usually find aged whites a little bit rough around the edges. Definitely strong hay and light honey notes (as usual with aged whites), but it is very well rounded. The tea put me in a state of bliss. After infusion 2 I started feeling relaxed but after about 4, I found myself daydreaming and feeling extremely relaxed and content. It is taking way too long to write this review. Im about 6 infusions in and think there are still quite a few left but Im taking my time with this one. Wonderful tea. I will be ordering more cakes. Best aged white i’ve ever had.
