I had this tea for quite some time, and I had no idea I owned it. I was attempting at some late spring cleaning, and I came across a jar of this. I decided that I should finally give it a go. The leaf is heavily compressed and gives off a smooth and sweet scent with some heavy woody base. I take in the familiar tang of tobacco common with most aged sheng. I warmed up my jianshui and placed a chunk inside. The aroma deepened into a thick candied fragrance with syrupy textures. I take in a light smokiness and some slight tobacco. The leaf gives an underlying aroma of brown sugar. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The mouth sensation consists of a full feeling thick like oil. The taste is sweet with honey syrup. A muddled grass tone lies underneath. The huigan is great and potent and lasts extensively after each sip. The later steeping brings on a slight bitterness to intrigue along with dry tones to wipe away the palette. The qi began as a wonderful cooling effect that washed over my body. The feeling proceeded to cause me to really space out. A lingering taste of sugarcane and sweet vegetables followed me. The qi began climbing and my hairs were rising. This brew was very stimulating, and the huigan was sweet and drowning. i really liked this tea. I love the teas that are not the prettiest looking and almost seem unwanted, yet they surprise you with such a memorable session. I enjoyed this tea so very much!

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.


Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
