2015 Menghai DaYi Legend of Flying Tigers (Chuan Qi) Ripe 357g
Currently available from King Tea on Aliexpress.
The tea cake was made to commemorate late Mr. Claire Lee Chennault (September 6, 1893 – July 27, 1958) was an American military aviator best known for his leadership of the “Flying Tigers” and the Republic of China Air Force in World War II. Based primarily out of Rangoon, Burma, and Kunming, Yunnan, Chennault’s 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) – better known as the “Flying Tigers” – began training in August 1941 and fought the Japanese for seven months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Chennault’s three squadrons used P-40s, and his tactics of “defensive pursuit,” formulated in the years when bombers were actually faster than intercepting fighter aircraft, to guard the Burma Road, Rangoon, and other strategic locations in Southeast Asia and western China against Japanese forces. As the commander of the Chinese Air Force flight training school at Yunnan-yi, west of Kunming, Chennault also made a great contribution by training a new generation Chinese fighter pilots. The Flying Tigers were formally incorporated into the United States Army Air Forces in 1942. Prior to that, Chennault had rejoined the Army with the rank of colonel. He was later promoted to brigadier general and then major general, commanding the Fourteenth Air Force.

A man to be remembered, and a quality tea was made to pay respect.

Have this tea now from two sources. This one is from Berylleb King Tea and it is quite good. I really don’t remember how much I liked the other. Have to dig it out for a taste comparison on the different storage. This one was thick with fermentation flavor but that flavor was not unpleasant or fishy. It was sweet from the beginning with little bitterness. I do hope this ages into something nice.

I steeped this twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 10.2g 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, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. The leaves weren’t done but I had had enough tea.

Tried a sample of this today. It is a pretty good standard Dayi ripe. The flavors are a bit more complex and subtle than some other offerings. A very safe bet if you’re looking for a good product for aging.
