I hate how since 2015, every description of this tea is copy-pasted, including ’Da Qing Gu Shu (Da Qing Old Tree) is my favorite tea from Spring 20XX. ’. That feels so unpersonal, Scott… I guess it shows how big Yunnan Sourcing has become.
I really like this tea. It feels very lively. There is a lot of freshness and sweetness to the taste, and the mouthfeel has an active, tingling, interesting quality that makes this tea engaging. There is very little astringency and no grassiness. Maybe I would have liked a little more thickness to this tea, but it is still very young and I guess it might acquire more substance with some short-term aging.
