Lao Huang Pian

Recently some 80’s  lao huang pian of unknown origin came into our possession,  so we brewed it up (‘Aini’ style) in the tetsubin which we also recently had lent to us.

Lao huang pian doesn’t typically provide a big, full flavour, but at this age it makes for a very pleasant experience; smooth, velvety, rounded.  The whole mouth is sweet; tongue, upper palate, throat with a light and enjoyable chenwei that, since this tea has been dry stored, has no hint of mouldiness.  The cha qi is gentle but strong.
