My second Lao Cha Tou which I opened after finishing the 2014 brick.
Fleeting fermentation taste which I enjoyed as it added dimension to a simple tea. Otherwise clean and smooth. Around 15 steeps a brew.
I will get the 2016 brick in my next order.

Got a bit nervous right away because the fishy smell was strong enough to be sitting on the dry leaf. The fishiness did not show up in the flavor at all though. Nice easy cake to break up, beautiful little nugs just sort of fall off once they get loosened. My only gripe is that the wrapper is glued shut so you need to rip the paper to get at the tea. I really wanted to keep it intact and be able to fold it back shut. Not a big deal.

Has some beautiful flavors: mushroom, rice, root veggies. Perfect level of sweetness for me. Very very light astringency. Lots of steeps (I’m on 9 now, I think, and it’s got a lot more to give).

At 6.6 cents/g this is a great value. Glad I added this brick to my order.

Update: got 12 or 13 steeps I think, wasn’t really counting. Last one was about 2 minutes and it was still nice and smooth and sweet.
