I had a sample of the Nannuo maocha from Hou De today, which he gave to me for free when I bought some other stuff. I sort of messed up brewing it — underbrewed, with not enough leaves. The leaves are very large, and smell like young puerh. When I brewed it, however, it tastes more like a typical, slightly grassy green. Very mild, and sort of mellow. I think I need to try it again with a little more leaves to do it justice.

Since I shared the tea today, and since it was so light, I indulged in a second round of tea with some Tea Gallery Dahongpao. Warm and nice, although I feel it lacks a little in lasting power and a truly long, lingering aftertaste. Maybe it’s just me being picky.

  1. Have you found your dad yet? Maybe, he can get you some DHP from Wuyi. I heard they just processed this year cliff oolong but needed to wait for at least 1 month before the fire is tolerable.

  2. No, it’s pretty hopeless, and he doesn’t drink tea, so asking him to buy things is like asking him to lose money. They’ll probably sell him old stuff from 2005, or 2004!
