A tea supposedly from the tribute area of Mansong. Fruity, complex, and lots of qi!

Not just supposedly. (: Which makes the tea unusual indeed. Mansong is as faked as it gets.
There is little if anything of more reliability than CYH on the open market, imo. Not just in descriptive claims, which thankfully they don’t make much anyway, but all around. I made the transition from white wrappers, custom local orders (including trying a few of the mythical “this is for the millionaire hobbyist” teas) from maocha solicitors or farmers to being glad to pay premiums (when there are any) for such teas. With prices being what they are currently, it makes little sense not to invest in very high curation and processing control if you are going for the fancier stuff.
I’ll get to try this one soon, methinks. Has any of the Yiwus come your way?
