From Yee On Tea Co.

A new release at our retail store after post-fermentation at our professional warehouse for past 11 years, this 2009 7342H Chi Tse Beeng Cha packaged in an eye-catching yellow, and purple hue has captured our retail customer’s attention recently.

Masterfully controlled in the fermentation process, the raw leaves have fermented to a half-ripe stage during pile-fermentation giving this tea a uniquely alternate taste. This Pu-erh has the smoothness of a Ripe Pu-erh, yet retaining the fragrance and Cha Hi of a Raw Pu-erh. Just the perfect combination of both.

Great taste and excellent value, no wonder our customer’s been coming back to buy tongs!

6.2g, 100 mL duanni. 2 rinses, some time in between. boiling, Brita water. It just tastes like shou puer. I broke up some chunks and it’s been sitting with some other puer. Not sure how much that contributed, but this is easy drinking and pretty clean. When warm: Slightly sweet + slight bitterness and storage taste, pretty nice. When cold: more bitter and earthy, not as nice. Why am I drinking cold tea?? I sometimes forget about it and the cup cools. Cold tea notes are rarely intentional for me.

Hard to find anything wrong with it, especially considering it was just a bit over .09c/g after factoring in shipping. Big caffeine kick from this one, so nice daily.

in sum: do I regret jumping on the Yee-on hype train? No.

But could I distinguish between the budget Yee-on shous in a line-up? …not really. Maybe time to air out a bit will help.
