This tea comes from “JinSeYunXiang” series. “JinSeYunXiang” written in mandarin by “金色韵象” can be easily translated into golden of “金色” but very difficult at least for me to translate “韵象”. Thanks to Google translate and internet, I choose “Rhyme” as the corresponding word temporarily. So, let’s call it “Golden Rhyme” . Still abstract? I think so. But let’s move on.
MengHai tea factory released this tea after it was privatized in 2004 year. And it belongs to a high-end sheng cha during whole line-up of DaYi. In 2005 year, there are three “JinSeYunXiang” belongs to two colors generally. One is 400g with yellow wrapper and the other two are both green wrapper packaged as this one below. Green version has two versions of 400g called big cake and 200g of small cake. Definitely there are difference between yellow version and green version, but there is no difference ever on tea material and processing technology with green version. Till now we have no idea what is difference between the two versions of two colors and obviously DaYi decided from the beginning leave some mysterious things for tea lover to assume according to their own feeling and experience to it’s products but make some others public. Maybe they also want to know how these tea will be different from others in future evolution and that should be kept as secrets reasonably, I assume.
There is still one thing released by DaYi officially that, all the tea products belong to “JinSeYunXiang” pressed using 3 years old loose leaves. It means these tea below are using tea materials picked up in 2002 year, and the future 2006 year product is using tea materials from 2003 year.
On the wrapper, we can see a large Chinese tea character “博” which is for commemoration of MengHai tea factory’s new host of “博闻科技”.
Guangzhou city stored till now.

Tea review on 11th Feb. 2018 year.
Tea body is slight loose because not pressed too tight.
For the reason of stems which seems like skeleton of the body, all the tea leaves like stand there not sleep there.
Ever bitterness or astriengency is on a suitable level after so many years’ evolution.
If I can afford the cost of this tea, I would rather drink it every day.
