From The Chinese Tea Shop

This tea has been kept in Hong Kong since the 1990’s. The tea leaves are big and are picked from old trees. Since this tea has been fermented/aged and was transported to different warehouses, a small amount of the leaves are broken, but most of the leaves are still in wholesome shape. The dry leaves consist of a brown color, giving the tea liquid a very comfortable woody, dry date flavor which lingers in the mouth. The tea is mellow and smooth in mouth feel with no bittiness/astringency. A nice tea for calming and relaxation!

It’s not a secret – I hate fall. It’s just the saddest season and it means winter is coming.
One of the only things that I really love is Pumpkin Amaretto Cheesecake from a local cafe.
So tonight I went and got a slice and snuggled in with it and some good shou.
This tea is almost perfect for me. It’s dark and bold, but not over powering. It’s fruity and sweet, but still has some aged woodiness. This tastes old without being musty and nasty. Once quick rinse and it’s just amazing.
All is right in my world…..

I should find this one and try it. :)

Your tasting note said that there was a mustiness to it that you weren’t digging… woody and musty. LOL to each their own. I think it’s smooth, sweet and awesome. Drink something that you enjoy.:))

It might have just needed to air out. :)

I’ll probably be updating this note as I drink the tea. Sample generously provided by Dexter. :) Thank you!

I flash-rinsed twice, and because it was loose pieces it opened up pretty fast. The first steep was still fairly pale orange, and the second steep now is quite dark. It has a bit of musty flavour still that I’m not digging, but it’s reduced even with the second steep so I have high hopes.

It’s fairly sweet (yay!) and kind of woody-fruity. More wood, though. :)

I’ve steeped 7 times now and it’s starting to slow down. The musty flavours are mostly gone, and now it’s a smooth and slightly sweet brew. I’ve enjoyed this very much, although I don’t think I’d buy it for myself.

Thanks so much for sharing!
