6.2g, 100 mL duanni. 2 rinses, some time in between. boiling, Brita water. It just tastes like shou puer. I broke up some chunks and it’s been sitting with some other puer. Not sure how much that contributed, but this is easy drinking and pretty clean. When warm: Slightly sweet + slight bitterness and storage taste, pretty nice. When cold: more bitter and earthy, not as nice. Why am I drinking cold tea?? I sometimes forget about it and the cup cools. Cold tea notes are rarely intentional for me.

Hard to find anything wrong with it, especially considering it was just a bit over .09c/g after factoring in shipping. Big caffeine kick from this one, so nice daily.

in sum: do I regret jumping on the Yee-on hype train? No.

But could I distinguish between the budget Yee-on shous in a line-up? …not really. Maybe time to air out a bit will help.

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Trying to learn!!

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
