Dayi

This one is called "Red and Green " if you translate the name of this one properly. I started out with 11 grams in a yixing devoted to dayi shou. As I am a big Dayi shou head as most of you know. I hit it with just below boiling water for a rinse of 10 seconds.
I steeped the cup for about the same time. It does not taste like a full shou. It has some of the “metallic” of a young sheng in the background with a semi-bitter punch to it. It has a touch of wood with some drying bite of astringency on the tongue. I has a taste almost like a bite of tree bark to it.
I opened the pot up and found some whole green looking leaves that were apparently mixed in with this during the pressing. It is really a hard one to describe with my simple taste buds. Not bitter or smooth , in between on this. Some sharpness to the profile without being totally bitter. I think this is lightly fermented and meant for aging. I think in 5 years or so I will see how it develops.
Not a bad tea but an interesting profile from a mainstream Dayi product.
