Using early spring tea materials picked from arbor trees growing in three different tea mountains including “yu shou”, “ba da” and “bu lang”. The blend recipe is from Mr. Zou bingliang who is the creator of haiwan tea factory and former CEO of menghai tea factory.
Aged tea threads with darkness and large tea buds are covered with multi golden tea hairs.
Clear tea liquor with brightness.
Minor or near none bitterness and astringency.
Rich, smooth and mellow.
Well balanced tastes with thickness.
Huigan (returning sweetness) and saliva producing both are on good level.
Lingering aftertastes are quite enjoyable.
Sweetness like mountain spring water.
Like a upgraded version of traditional 7542 from menghai tea factory or 7548 from. Mr. Zou’s own tea factory.
Well recommended for improving tea experience.
Guangzhou natural storage.
This is a nicely aged cake and a good example of a factory production. The taste is sort of resembling 7542, being dark, woodsy, with bits of dark fruitiness. The wood in taste can be perceived as slightly smoky, but not to the degree I would find excessive or unpleasant. Overall, taste is good, although not exactly surprising or unusual in any way.
Mouthfeel is thick and active; there is very nice huigan and overall feeling coming from the tea. I would say the smoothness of the tea and the transition from taste to aftertaste and huigan is a highlight of this tea.
Pricing is appropriate and the price could probably go a bit higher and still be good.
