Tea distribution update

Aside from drinking that Wangzhi maocha, blogged below, I also went to the tea market and divided up the teas into little bags:

One of them I called sample A, the other sample 1. Sorry for the silly naming scheme, but I don’t want my numbering/naming scheme to affect your drinking order in any way.  It’s a choice that is entirely up to you.  There should be enough tea in there for a comfortable two serving, I hope.

I will go and send them out tomorrow.  They inspect everything here at China Post… so I hope they won’t give me to much trouble.

  1. Hi MarshalN,

    Thanks for the generaosity. The samples arrived as I was about to leave for an overseas trip.

    Great timing as I managed to taste just on time.

    My amateur opinion:

    Sample 1: Lighter yellow brew, some astringency, has a beany taste which tends to coat the tongue.

    Sample A : Yellow-orange brew, less astringency, refreshing woody taste, minty after-effect at the back of the throat.

    Personally I like sample A, which I suspect may be 2 to 3 years older than sample 1.
