Had a second session with this one a bit ago since I received a sample from a tea friend who I failed to inform that I already have brick. >_<
But I find it interesting to taste teas that I have that come from others, since it gives me a chance to see how regional and storage differences can affect how the tea tastes.
I’ve been quite fond of huangpian lately but very selective when it comes to Yiwu tea, so this one is an interesting experience. Dry leaf smells sweet and fruity and steeps out to a light gold liquor. The flavor is sweet and fruity, with a slight hint of tobacco smoke developing in the nose.
I’ll enjoy continuing to come back to this one over time and comparing it to other hps from the same area!
