So last weekend I was house sitting for my parents as they were out of town and I just threw some random samples into my backpack… I pick out this one that says 97 Chawangshop red mark and I’m thinking ‘eh this will be decent I suppose’ thinking that Chawangshop doesn’t have serious bangers… well, I was wrong and it’s good to be wrong!
Tea brewed out really dark. Taste much like a Bulang with that spunk to it. Nice texture, a little speckle on the tongue/throat; you know, like the viscosity of the liquid was taking its time trickle throw/on both. Taste was very aged and dry aged at that… dry aged is MUCH easier to taste tea progression and low notes unlike humid storage; just try a 10 year XG that was humid stored vs a 10 year dry XG stored cake. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some humid stored stuff, but what a treat it is to have a dry stored cake that you can kind of taste the years pass through your taste buds.
No idea who gave me a sample, no idea if more is to be had… awesome session. Very satisfied.
