Thanks for the writeup, looks like a tea I need to consider. I see it is described as having been stored in "a traditional (wettish) storage condition", so it sounds somewhat wetter than Guangdong dry storage which is like music to my ears. Do you agree with this description? It's also described as having strong cha qi, does that resonate with your experience?tingjunkie wrote: ↑Sat Apr 27, 2019 2:01 amFinishing up a sample of the 2006 Changtai Tian Xia Tong An from YS. It's not earth-shattering, but it's very good at hitting all the areas I care about in an aged sheng. Clean humid storage, good aromas, flavors, mouthfeel, stamina, price, and most importantly it's a clean tea with calming energy. I had $20 worth of points to cash in and negate shipping costs, so I ordered 2 cakes to serve as a daily drinker and see how it ages further. There are better teas out there, but finding one of this quality for a very affordable price is always nice. I like the 2003 Changtai Yiwu better, but not enough to justify the 2.5X cost/g.
I have been really impressed with some of the Guangdong stored teas YS offers in terms of quality/price. Just ordered two more tuos of the "2007 Pin Xiang Bu Lang Shan Tuo" which blew me away considering the price (USD 18 a few weeks ago). I really hope Scott keeps stocking these Guangdong stored teas with 10-15 years of age and a daily drinker price tag.
