This is an interesting tea. It is a border tea, produced in Myanmar, and is very cheap at $12 for a 200g cake. It is definitely good, but certainly rougher than typical young sheng we’ve all probably been tasting in recent years. It’s kind of tart, somewhat bitter throughout, and very green. It is also very strong, both in body and in qi, and was very long lived. I think those who like strong and bitter would find this tea interesting and appealing and well worth a try at this price. Chawangshop says that this kind of border tea is often used as a mixer in high end blends, like Lao Banzhang. I can see how that would work…
