A delicious tea! The dry leaves smelled like a typical black tea. Right off the bat from the first steep this was a sweet tea with tastes of honey and simply put it was sweet and delicious. The tea was very smooth and had a thick and great mouth feel to it. The second steep I wasn’t paying close attention to what I was doing and left the leaves perhaps a bit too long in the Gaiwan. As such the steep was a bit astringent but was still very forgiving. I drank this steep, but was thinking that I had ruined a session. Alas I had a bit of good luck with it, as the next steep was right back where it should have been. I got a total of 7 steeps plus a quick wash out of this tea, and that was the only bad part. If the tea had held out, I would probably still be drinking it now!

I’m new here. Trying to learn the art of Gongfu Cha.
About 3 years ago, I saw a video on YouTube about this Way of Tea, and I really wanted to try it. I started buying some teas, from one of those chain tea stores, here in Germany. You know the one’s with who knows what in their teas? But as could be expected I was disappointed. Then one day I took a risk and bought a Menghai 7572 off of Ebay. About a month later this Beeng showed up, at my door, and I sort of fell in love. I tried to tell my family about how awesome this tea stuff is, and of course most everyone didn’t understand and thought perhaps I’ve slipped off the deep end.
I showed a former employer’s wife who just happened to be Chinese, pictures of a Gaiwan that I had just bought, and she started talking to me all about Chinese teas. She told me that everyone drinks tea, and that it is really healthy for you. She also told me she drinks Pu-erh because it helps her with her stomach. The next day she brought a 2006 Long Yuan Hao Beeng into the office and just gave it to me like it was some candy, and said here try this one. That’s when I became addicted. I mean this stuff had some sort of magic inside it, or perhaps it was drugs. I don’t know, all I do know is that I am hooked on Pu-erh.
