From Tea Yuan

This is a 2014 Spring production harvested from old arbor trees near the village of Gua Feng Zhai. A very powerful tea that leaves a strong fragrance in the cup and has a long lasting hui gan. A great candidate for long term aging or drinking now.

Puerh Tea TTB. This tea was fairly tasty. It had a light bitterness and a mild sweetness. Not the full on apricots notes but it was sweet. It is interesting to try tea from Tea Yuan as I have never drank anything from them before.

I brewed this eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.3g leaf and 200 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.

About 8 grams in my usual 100ish ml yixing. Tea opened up with some promise. Had all the good Yiwu characteristics along with some deeper bass notes that gfz is known for. Fairly thick but not super dense like some of white2tea offerings. Through 3 or 4 steeps the tea was fruity and sweet, not much bitterness which was the first sign of trouble. Also those bass notes brown sugar, plums mushrooms were there. Around steep 5 or so the tea lightened significantly in both taste and body. Pushing it harder the next steep didn’t translate into a much better cup. Next steep I ramped up the water to full boil and went even longer. Results were once again disappointing. Got a watery thin cup.

I did one or 2 more but it just kept getting worse. Was really disappointed in this session considering that this is a pricey tea, right around 270 for a full cake. Puts it around the price range of both the Tuhao and Bosch from White2tea and either of those are leagues better. I’d put this closer to the poundcake and if your reading this which are less than half the price and have better durability. Only thing this was better at than those 2 cakes is qi and even that was light and short lived.

Shame to see this producer release a product like this when a year earlier their gfz got rave reviews
