From White 2 Tea

2005 Gaoshan Qingbing Raw 357g
We have never been so confused by the wrapper of a cake in relation to its material. The label boasts that the puer cake is:
Tall Mountain
Wild Tree
Big Leaf
Xishuangbanna (and from Menghai)
Made for Export
High Grade
Of that long list of claims, we can verify that exactly zero of those things are 100% true. However, the tea is good and that is all that we care about. The tea is sweet, soft, smooth, and an excellent daily drinker – it resembles Yiwu character more closely than typical Menghai character. Ten year old tea with clean dry storage, it is a great value.

Strong bitterness if over brewed or with too much leaf (found that out the hard way). With a lighter ratio and short steep times the bitterness is tamed to a good level. Subtle hints of aged flavour like liu bao or traditionally stored 7542. An underlying dustiness that continues throughout the steeps. Seems like a good candidate for further ageing.

The strength of the aged flavour in this tea seems to very quite substantially between sessions. Perhaps different areas of the cake have aged at very different rates? I prefer this tea when the aged flavour is not so overpowering, when it is strong the tea feels a bit thin.

I’m just about out of this tea, so really need to write a review. The thing is, my scores have been all over the map, ranging from 84 to 89. The main reason for the variation is that the dominant flavor is a meaty herbaceous taste that I sometimes really like but that often is off-putting. The flavor is strong, with slight bitterness and some smoke. Best part of the tea might be the finish, which is long and pleasant.

As you can probably judge from the above description, the flavor is quite complex, which is a major plus for me. I was going to check the recommend box, but realized that while I enjoyed the tea, I won’t buy more when the sample is gone, so perhaps that is not a very strong recommendation.

First I put ten grams and put it in a gaiwan and rinse it for 5 seconds . The first brew was for 5 seconds and sweet tangy flavor and dark amber color. The second brew was darker and had a nice new barn smell and was like a ruby color. The last brew was a darker color and had smelled stronger .

Having a nice Christmas evening session with this. A good relaxing tea compared to the Last Thoughts this morning. Plenty of energy but not ass whooping energy. A perfect tea for a casual session with the family.

It’s odd that my mother can not stand this tea but was loving the 2005 Rocket Yiwu yesterday. I will admit the Gaoshan is a bit more earthy but I was still surprised to see such a night and day reaction. I have to admit, Rocket Yiwu is more up my alley, with the floral/fruity flavors and huigan, but the Gaoshan is considerably smoother and thicker in my opinion.

I think I experience more qi with the Gaoshan then with Rocket Yiwu. There’s a million variables to take into consideration when talking about qi so who really knows. But I think I’m getting more body effect from the Gaoshan, but more enjoyable flavor from Rocket Yiwu. So all in all I’m glad this tea fits my needs. But I may have to get the Rocket Yiwu as well. The two teas are surprisingly different from eachother.

Sounds like an interesting tea. Do you equate body to richness? Can you elaborate a bit more on the flavors you picked up? How many steeps does it yield?

When I said “body effect” I was talking more about energy and cha qi. The flavors are sweet, slightly floral and earthy like wet wood. I got about 8-12 good steeps out of it.
