Its sweetness and strong YiWu fragrance has matured over the past year and a half to a darker, more earthy sweetness. You can still taste some of its region of origin towards the end of the sip, however it certainly changing to a thicker cup. The liquid has darkened a bit as well. I’m definitely going to hang on to enough of this one, in order to observe its continued development over the next couple years.

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West and has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!
