A tea acquired via the YangQing Hao group orders generously coordinated by Emmett of Cha & Kung Fu blog. The TsangLiu is a six famous tea mountains blend (greater Yiwu area), with material from each of the six. MangZhi, ManZhuan, YouLe, Gedeng, Yibang, and Yiwu. In comparison to the Chawang, the TsangLiu is the earthier, heavier cousin.

Thanks for reviewing both this tea and the 2005 YangQing Hao Yiwu ChaWang last week. I am in the market for these types of teas and am planning to participate in Emmett’s November group buy, so these reviews are relevant to me.
How does this compare with the 06 Gushu Cha Wang? I am looking forward to the Qizhong review I just ordered a cake. This was my second choice. But I was worried it would be to similar to the 06 Gushu cha wang that I have a few cakes of.
For ageing I am a big fan of blends. I feel like quality blends have the opportunity to be better than single mtn. Teas as they get older do to the variety of different characteristics.
The Tsang is very similar to the 06 gushu chawang just not as good.
