4g in Gaiwan.

Dry leaf: Mostly loose and is colourful like White2Tea New Amerykah 2. It has some concentrated herbyness, but this is mild.
Wet leaf: This is slightly subdued concentrated herbyness with some dust and some spice.

Summary: Softly fruity (raisins/apricots), slightly smoky, with some bitterness creates a level of friction, which makes this a stimulating and interesting tea to drink.

5s – Slightly smoky, mild in flavour, has a pleasant soft fruitiness like 2007 White2Tea Repave by White2Tea.
10s – Aroma of the liquid has a soft Yiwu-like fruitiness. Bitterness and astringency makes this softly fruity, slightly smoky tea more interesting.
15s – Liquor is orangey. It has a syrupy consistency; it feels thick in the mouth. It’s edging towards a certain type of fruit – raisins and apricots.
20s – It’s not a strongly flavoured tea, but it is mildly fruity with some bitterness.

I had a second session with this tea, this time with a hot curry (Madras), and although the tea is fairly mild in flavour, it was not overpowered by the curry and cut through with a bitter, slightly smoky, raisin like fruitiness, which was enough to raise my appreciation of this tea.

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Raisins, Smoke

Back into pu-erh and loving it.
First time ordering from Yang Qing Hao and I have had highs and lows. I aim to review at some point.

I drink mainly rooibos and peppermint tea these days as I leave my pu-erh tea to age.

I decided to join Steepster because I have found other people’s opinions on teas very useful in deciding what to buy, and I thought I would contribute.

Online orders so far:
Dragon Tea House – Free shipping and a huge selection of tea.
White2Tea – Excellent communication with the seller and good selection of teas. Teas came in metallic zip lock bags.
Yunnan Sourcing – Huge selection; recent change to delivery price made this a good option.
SampleTea – Selection of aged teas. Teas delivered were very well packaged and presented.
Pu-erh.sk Small selected. Excellent communication with seller. Packing was solid – the teas were more than safe.
Street Shop 88 (eBay) Low prices with free delivery. Sample size was precisely what I ordered.
O-Cha Seller of Japanese teas. The daily Sencha and Shincha were awesome.
Essence Of Tea – The order arrived after over 5 weeks, but I am really impressed with the teas so far.
Chawangshop – Order came very well packaged.
