So I’ve been digging through a pile of YS samples expecting Scott to soon announce another 15% off sale soon and I don’t want to miss it this time. I’ve tasted several dry stored Yiwu area teas from 2009-12 recently and they could all be the same tea for all I could tell. Faint foresty notes, perhaps a touch of floral top notes and slowly emerging aged notes of wood and mushrooms…topped off with qi that’s pleasant but nothing to shout about. Each left me with the feeling that it may be great in 10 years but… I steeped 10g of this and it followed suit for the first 5 steeps. I pushed it a bit on steep 6 and it totally transformed into a dark honey note like I get from some GFZ teas. Halfway through this steep a tingly wave of relaxation rolled over my entire body and seemed to emanate from my bones. In 5 seconds I was totally zonkered. The following steeps were heathery and reminiscent of Dalwhinnie scotch. Steep 12 was for an hour and reminded me of dried mushroom broth. I planned to clean the house but ended up listening to Coltrane and grinning all day. I looked on YS site to learn they’re out of full beengs but there were still some on the US site and ordered one which I intend to age a few years.
