Notes: I ordered a 100g piece after reading a favourable review by AllanK.
Summary: Good tea, with a nice raisin sweetness and some throat stimulation, but short lived.

5g in Gaiwan.

Dry leaf: Very high compression. Outside of the cake piece looks like good leaves; inside it is so compressed that it looked like different leaves.
Aroma is hay.
How Gaiwan: Grey smoke; some clay; fruit.
Wet leaf: Fruit; grey smoke.

Rest for 50 minutes.

10s – Pale salmon liquor. Very smooth, light smoke, sweet raisin fruitiness. Lingering sweet, slightly fizzy finish. 70/100.
15s – Pale salmon liquor. Long sweetness, gently stimulating the throat. Well balanced: no sharp bitterness and no astringency. Lingering faint raisin-sweetness. 80/100.
20s – Pale salmon liquor. Very gentle bitterness against the light raisin sweetness. Some very mild astringency this time. Again, some light throat stimulation.
25s – Light bronze liquor. Raisins are stronger; sweet raisins return after the swallow.
40s – Light bronze liquor. Flavour is a little sub-dued compared to previous sessions. 60/100.
50s – Light bronze liquor. Some base sheng – end of session.

I thought this was a short session for 5g.

Flavors: Raisins

5 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

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.
