From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a re-creation of a clasics tuo designed to expose tourists to the Dali. This tea is entirely first flush of Spring tea and was processed and blended in the traditional Xiaguan manner. It is mentioned that Cang Shan spring water was used for the steaming process just prior to compression.

The "Wu Jin Hua" or Five Golden Flowers refers to a 1959 movie shot in the Dali area. For most Chinese people it was their first glimpse of a remote and exotic area populated by the Bai Minority. The back of the packaging shows a map of Er Hai lake in the Dali prefecture of Yunnan detailing the different areas around Er Hai featured in the movie.

an awesome tea!

when i smell the tuo dry, it smells sweet and green.

when i smell the leaves wet, they smell sweet, green and spicy.

when i smell the brewed tea, it smells sweet and spicy.

when i taste the brewed tea, it tastes sweet and slightly spicy

this tea did not need to rinse long and maybe not at all as i did not get the top quarter rinsed well with water but it still tasted awesome! :D

however i have one minor problem, i wish this tea tasted more spicy instead of slightly spicy. (this in no way affects the score) :)

many thanks to scott wilson and yunan sourcing for this amazing tea
