Lapsang Souchong Pristine 2017
Hello Minh, thanks for the question. The current harvest is in maocha state and still needs some work and resting. I guess it will be May, if not late April. Will update in newsletter.Siu PB
Shèmen Dancong Double Baked 2016
Tea Hong never disappoints.
One of the best Oolongs I ever had, this Shèmen Dancong Double Baked has a rich peach note, both in the aroma and the taste. Try to experiment with short AND longer infusions, both will bring you different, but very rich and complex results.
It’s an unique tea and isn’t comparable to other Oolongs in my honest opinion as these peach, mandarin notes change their complexity and aroma over the course of the infusions. You won’t regret buying it.Maximilian Vorhoff
Shiguping Wulong 2019
Hello “a new visitor”, the new harvest is normally around mid-April, but it has to go through our intake process and standards, which is not the same for each tea. This tea should be available some time in late May, if the harvest for this year is good.Siu PB
Taiping Houkui Traditional 2020
Brewed it in a Ball jar
Not as glamorous as using a gaiwan, but when I saw the ice-fire instructions, a Ball jar seemed to be a good choice for these tall tea shards in a vessel that would not crack with heat fluctuation. Strained it into a tall pitcher using a gold tea filter. I can definitely taste the apricot and grass tones. Just lovely.Karen Ager
A good tea but didn’t like the smell
Received a free sample of this tea, the flavour was enjoyable but I didn’t like the smell. For me it smelt like very strong pollen and irritated my nose. If you like this smell (like freshly cut grass) then this tea would be ok for you.Mark Radymski
Honey Orchid 2018
2013 vs 2011
Hello Sofina, this is a great question. No one can be 100% sure of how the 2013 will mature. However, given proper storage condition, we believe this stock will become a better tea in two year’s time than the 2011 batch now. We agree with you that there will be more tastes and thereby to mature into a fuller body and a mellowed down astringency. If you are interested in maturing this tea, we shall launch a new bigger pack size that will be more advantageous for maturing. Hopefully that’s before this batch is sold out. 😉Siu PB
