From Yezi Tea

Xiao Ba Wang (or Sundance Kid) teas are available in 7 oz. / 200-gram disks and come from younger trees. These teas have a forward-facing fruit flavor with only very slight bitterness. Like fine wine, these teas can be aged in your home—and you will find that the resulting flavor can be every bit as intoxicating!

Yezi is having a sale for CNY, and I came across this tea once again. Now I’m thinking about getting more of this, ‘cause it came highly recommended. I got a sample in my Black Friday order and hadn’t tried it out until now. I used the whole 5g sample in my 150 ml gaiwan. i did a short rinse of 5 sec and then started with 5 sec increments. Methinks it could have been better with a slightly longer initial steep after the rinse. Ah well.
So! This sample answered my questions! … well, almost.
1. Is this any good? Yes, very.
2. Should I get more of it? Yeah, couldn’t hurt.
3. Why do they only offer it in 3.5oz and full cake size???

Le sigh.

Yezi is so odd with their sizes. Some of their teas sell by the single oz, some start at 2oz, and with most of their Puerh, the bidding starts at 3+ oz. I guess I am getting another sample. Maybe one day I will cave in and get the whole goddamn cake.
But not this time.

Steeped this gongfu, of course, and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Although Yezi recommends an initial steep of 30 seconds, adding 10-15s per additional steep, I opted for far shorter initial steeps: 10s rinse, then 5,10,15,20,25,30,40,60,90,120,240, and 360 seconds.

I had a black cherry aroma mixed with something else, something earthy and old; when I say old, past-their-prime tangerines, I don’t mean it badly, but maybe that was it… it’s got that great earthy pu-erh aroma as long as you look for it. As pu-erhs go, this is pretty light.

This tea can get bitter quickly if you don’t keep an good eye on it, but if checked it’s fantastic.

so what’s really terrible is that I have been overwhelmed lately with trying to get the house in order so that it’s one lest thing to worry about next year in addition to wedding planning, and my mother cale up this weekend to go dress shopping…etc…etc.. so i had this sample probably 4 days ago…and didn’t get a chance to log it…and my notes have disappeared from the office. SOOOOOO all i can remember was that this was a very light brew…and refreshing. Something i’d be willing to pick up again…if nothing else just to be able to write a proper note on it lesigh
