I decided to visit the ancient tea forests of Jingmai mountain by sampling a 2009 Yunnan Sourcing Nostalgia bing. Due to the low compression, the leaves broke off intact, very pleasant sight. I used about 7 g to 100 mL of spring water.
The wet leaves produced a strong sweet, floral aroma with a touch of grassiness to it. The soup is a golden amber, remarkably clear. This is a clean tea. The soup itself has a sweet taste with some bitterness and astringency, a warming degree of astringency. The bitterness is not too overwhelming, although, many might think this tea needs a few more years.
Despite the bitterness and astringency (I personally enjoy some of this), this tea does have very nice Hui Gan and Qi!
Interesting tea. Earthy, reminiscing of Humus, but not too Earthy. The description of Bell Peppers above is Perfect! I would say the notes of Bell Peppers is the prominent feature of this tea!
