This tea, this tea (#103; technically Gardens of Anxi appears in my cupboard before this one, but I recently drank down my old stock of that, so I will drink some of the reblend when I get to it and Golden Earl). Bought March of 2012.
This is a true hoarding tea. I have looked for a replacement for this tea (I bought it on Maliandao in Beijing), but nothing is quite the same. I have for sure found other tasty Tan Yangs in my search, but nothing that really captures this one. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. Even in it’s old age it is deliciously sweet and honeyed, although I know its former glory has faded a bit. Perhaps I should drink it up before it ages any more, and then its sadder because I didn’t drink what I had while it was still delicious.
