From Teaurchin

Our blend of carefully selected, 100+ years old Yiwu 乔木 tea bushes, this is a punchy full flavored cake with lots going for it – brown sugar fragrance, a honey sweet liquor that coats the whole mouth, and some nice bitterness to balance. It is surprisingly complex, with some small tree astringency, but easily countered with shorter steep times. Buy together with it’s sister cake – our 2013 Spring Yiwu Snake Blend which was made from ancient trees 古树 and provides an interesting comparison.

This morning I am drinking a sample here I got from a friend… the 2nd time I’ve had it in the last couple of weeks.

It’s interesting the different type of flavors you get from sheng. Compared to a smoky, sour tea like a Xiaguan, this is much more mellow and more of an every day drinking tea for most people. I’m getting the sweetish/brown sugary notes, with a definite bittersweet flavor in the finish. I’ve tended to like the “Yiwu” shengs I’ve had in the past. I like the more relaxing energy I am getting from this. Not sure how to rate this one right now.

Seriously tempted to buy some but why is TeaUrchin shipping so expensive? $20 flat rate for China Post airmail? Seems like a lot if you are ordering something small.

It is a harsh price, especially after paying those prices! lol. But I do have to say that they package their teas really well, if that makes the difference.

Now I am curious How do they package them?

mrmopar

You get the cake packed carefully in a nice storage box. They do package well and they usually toss an extra “goodie” in there.

JC

yeah! I agree that the price is high, but they have to be the best out there when it comes to how intact the cakes arrive.
