From Teamania

This bingcha is made of tea leaves from teamaster Yans Ming own tea plantation in Yiwu. We are especially proud about this tea because it is one the first Bingcha we made by ourselves.

Together with our friends, the tea masters Yang Ming and Cha Shan Xing Zhe we went on the search for the ideal pu-erh tea leaves. However, far we did not need search as Yang Mings tea plantation offered this kind of tea leaves. And because Yang Ming doesn’t use pesticides nor artificial fertilizers are especially the bees very happy.

The sun came out and it was hitting 60s today so I brought a newer sheng outside hoping for some vegetable notes. Whatever ‘Yiwu Lucky Bee’ was suppose to be, ended up being what I needed.

So at first this looked like it was pretty new but also blended by the look of the leaf. From the first steep, I new this was a rather pure product that was going to need some serious attention so I did my best. I can tell you from experience that this tea is above what people would call ‘good’ and deserves to be called great. It reminded me of the pure taste that comes from Last Thoughts, but there isn’t a lingering taste. Notes of grass, fresh vegetables, and maybe a hint of sweetness, came through and make me smile because here I was finally enjoying a newer sheng once again proving that new or old, puerh can be amazing.

As I finished up outside, I took this inside with me to watch Collateral Beauty. Sheesh, this tea just kept going and I didn’t expect that. Little color, faint taste, and no way to over steep as I got towards the end.

Finished with the tea I expected a higher cost because I believe Teamania presses their stuff? Maybe, maybe not? Still know nothing about them. However, I looked online and this cake is all of $40… what? This is one of those really good bargains apparently, even if good Yiwu is EVERYWHERE at this point. I find this to be something a newer drinker would really appreciate as there is no need to know all the differences of puerh to just drink something light that last with a price that this has…. solid choice.

After four hours, I ended it up with some (what I thought would be ‘light’) reading
