2012 Yi Bang Spring 357g
Made from gushu trees growing in forest near Mangong village, Yibang. The tea yields an enticing floral aroma with a hint of sticky rice leaves. It delivers a full mouthfeel, with no bitterness, just an enduring sweet huigan, with a topnote of green rockmelon.

I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of the ‘sticky rice’ taste, but regardless, this was a pleasant afternoon tea session, with many steepings. I’ve been out of town for most of the past 2 weeks & my garden is insanely overgrown & in need of attention. I had planned to head out there, but a downpour informed me that I would not be doing so, and so it’s tea & harp playing, all for me!

This is clean, with that shiny & bright feeling, as if a group of brass players were all playing, using mutes. Yup…that pretty much describes it. Also, the taste of olive leaf. There’s more, but there are no words to give. Thanks to Stephanie for the sample :)

Having some really delicious sheng today while cleaning and prepping the house for thanksgiving. We are cooking for 11 people tonight! My husband is smoking a turkey, and we are making spicy collards, maple roasted Brussels sprouts, and dinner rolls. Oh and I made apple pie! My MIL is bringing scalloped corn and a pumpkin cake, and my mom is bringing fancy baked mashed potatoes with cream cheese in them (around here we call them party potatoes!)

Anyway I’m very thankful for all my wonderful steepster friends. Hope you all have a safe and warm holiday and tummies full of delicious food and of course TEA! <3


Yum! Sounds like an amazing feast!


Sounds fabulous, have fun and have a great Thanksgiving!


OMG smoked turkey. I really miss it! Sounds like a scrumptious meal.


Hope you are having a wonderful time with your family! <3

My Son in Law smoked a Turkey today. I’m not a big turkey fan, but it was delicious!

This Yi Bang is a very nice tea! When I first started the session, I was not very impressed but by the fourth infusion the leaves had become magical. Beautiful whole leaves and the resulting clear bright liquor has a warm, smooth mouthfeel with soft, sweet notes. I’ve been through 12 infusions and the leaves continue to produce. I also prefer it in 200 degree water rather than boiling.

I tend to do my young shengs at 200 as well :)
