Still quite lovely. Demands attention.
Canton has a Huang Ya!? I love that stuff. Better than its daintier cousin, Jun Shan.
Funny, most Jun Shan Yin Zhen I’ve had is more full-bodied and expresses a wider range of flavors than the Meng Ding Huang Ya I’ve had (I’ve only had 6 or 7 incarnations of it, though). How does this Huang Ya stack up in comparison or in general dimension?
I’ve only had one Huang Ya, I’ll admit. So I don’t have a median palate to judge from. But I’ve had two Jun Shans, and – while good – they were highly temperamental, spinaching if the temperature was off by a hair. Sometimes even Silver Needle temps were too touchy for it. Didn’t have that problem with the one Huang Ya I tried. It remained ever spicy and herbaceous.
